Some school children in Edmond, Oklahoma wrote these notes to be put in a disaster relief box given out by Feed The Children this week. Words to live by:
Hear more about the passion and excitement my husband Kevin has about his new job. It’s more than a job– it’s a ministry and it is great to watch him shine! I am so proud.
We are currently preparing for our first trip with Feed the Children overseas– leaving a week from Monday for Malawi and Kenya. We’ll be visiting with schools, orphanages, and community leaders that are a part of the larger FTC family. I’m most excited about meeting the children and being able to love on them and find out more about what we can do to encourage them. Best of all, this trip is something that Kevin and I will do together.

Today is a purely personal post. It’s a post of celebration and hope and excitement about the future as it relates to my family.
As many of you know, Kevin, my husband, accepted a position back in April to become the new President/ CEO of Feed the Children– one of the largest domestic and international relief agencies. It’s an organization for that helps ensure the 12 million children at risk of going hungry in the United States simply do not. It is an organization that in 2011 delivered over 104 million pounds of food and other life essentials to children in need and their families around the world. They do great work!
Considering Kevin’s master’s degree in international affairs, work experiences in large corporations and most recently as the Chief Operating Officer at a non-profit in DC, and his heart for using his leadership skills to fulfill his Christian calling of service– he rose to become the perfect fit for this organization seeking a visionary and energetic new leader.
Today is Kevin’s first official day on the job. He couldn’t be more excited to get to work with Feed the Children! I know he will love his new job even with all of the new responsiblity it will bring.
Though the transition will be hard for us in the beginning, as I continue to work here in DC as a pastor and he spends a lot of time in Oklahoma City learning the business, I couldn’t be more proud of him. I am cheering him and Feed the Children on and today, I’m asking you to do the same.
I know it would mean so much to Kevin (and to me too) if you took a moment this afternoon if you are a Facebook or Twitter user and post a comment of support for Kevin and his new work. Let’s let the great staff at Feed the Children know how wonderful their new leader is going to be for this organization.
