The Power of Giving

By Kathy / January 19, 2015 / Blog / No Comments

One of the neat things I get to do as Ministry Development Director is to attend social functions in the community related to philanthropic giving. They are gatherings of not for profit organizations, investment professionals, attorneys and occasionally individuals who are looking for worthwhile ...

Tourism at LFC

By Kathy / January 12, 2015 / Blog / No Comments

    Southwest Florida is a tourist magnet and why not! This is January and while our northern brethren dream of heat we luxuriate in a moderate clime with the sound of palm fronds rustling in the breeze. And when things get tough we can always go to the beach. I am always praying that [...

2014…Where did you go!?!

By Kathy / January 5, 2015 / Blog / No Comments

I tried to find a World Population Chart to check on the number of births on our blue green globe in 2014. I wasn’t successful in that I did not find the numbers I was searching for but I did get a look at the early returns for 2015. As of 10:46 EST  Jan. 5 there […]

The Fourth Day of Christmas

By Kathy / December 29, 2014 / Blog / No Comments

I relearned from my pastor yesterday about the twelve days of Christmas. As many of you already know, the tradition of twelve days of Christmas entails celebrations from Dec. 25th to the 37th which actually is Jan 5th. During those days there were feasts with friends and family, gift giving, caro...

An umarried, pregnant girl…

By Kathy / December 22, 2014 / Blog / No Comments

Can you believe it is Christmas 2014?  It seems like just yesterday it was Christmas 2013 and 2012 and 2011.. How can time move so rapidly as I progressively move more slowly? But in harmony with the season here at Lifeline we are having our Christmas party today.  Back in November we exchanged n...

Word gets around or does it?

By Kathy / December 15, 2014 / Blog / No Comments

I have a great job! Last week I got to visit and personally thank many of the corporate sponsors for Lifewalk. These are the  the companies and people that donated muffins, coffee, bagels, water, and  cookies to the event. That’s the grub that caused the locust like feeding frenzy in which ...

For those of you who attended I don’t have a lot to say but for those of you who didn’t … you just plain missed out.  I’m talking about Lifewalk 2014!  We had over 150 walkers/runners. That’s right there were several people who ran the mile and a half course and I kn...

Thanksgiving continues at Lifeline

By Kathy / December 1, 2014 / Blog / No Comments

After this weekend I am not sure I will ever be able to look a turkey sandwich in the face.  Well at least not till Christmas. Thanksgiving day might be over but the “thank yous” for the Lord’s blessings just keep on rolling. We have added a new resident, Amanda, and all seems t...

Quite a week!

By Kathy / November 24, 2014 / Blog / No Comments

I am learning that there is no such thing as a “normal” week at Lifeline Family Center. Dealing with the life changing issues as we do every week provides little opportunity for normalcy. But that is what we are here for. We are designed to handle crisis’s in the lives of young ...

Lifeline Open House 2014!

By Kathy / November 17, 2014 / Blog / No Comments

Did you notice the exclamation point. I should have added a few more. Most open houses that I have been to in the 50 plus years that I have been attending such functions tend to be dry social affairs with people looking around to see if there is anybody they can hang with until they can all exit ...
