“He will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair” (Isaiah 61:3).
I am blessed to support the most impactful ministry to hurting women that I know of – Beauty for Ashes. My friends, Jim and Debbi Hannah, launched this ministry in Bradenton, Florida, to help women who have been through life’s greatest challenges, such as incarceration and human trafficking. They provide a safe place to heal and discover God’s redemptive love. The ladies live in a home in Bradenton, where they learn life skills and are led into a deep and meaningful walk with God through Jesus Christ.
Women stay in the home for 12-18 months, as they progress through three phases of recovery and redemption. I don’t know of a more significant ministry that is doing more to change lives. If you want to see living miracles, visit the ministry website at www.b4ashes.net.
I want to encourage you to join me in supporting Beauty for Ashes. Through an amazing opportunity provided by The Patterson Foundation, every dollar given to the ministry will be matched 200 percent, up to a $100 gift. So if you give $100 to bless this incredible ministry, another $200 will be given, as well.
There is just a 24-hour window to give, starting today at noon and ending at noon tomorrow. I don’t know of a better way to build the Kingdom and make a difference.
Go to the website and follow the easy instructions to give. And pray for Jim and Debbi as they lead this phenomenal ministry. Your gift will make a huge difference, no matter how small. Beth and I are honored to support Beauty for Ashes. Pray about joining us!
