For the first time I checked this website because I know Trista how hard she works and puts so much time into this organization. I don't have young ones n my son is grown but I just wanted to say what an amazing difference and affect she has on these children an her community! I don't see how she does it other than having God on her side and the biggest heart ever. So thank you Trista for going above and beyond to help anyone really who needs you n your unconditional love.

Hi Trista! It's my pleasure to have met you and your mother at Josh's homecoming. Although I inquired about T-shirts and according to your faith, His thoughts are not our thoughts nor His ways our ways. Nevertheless, there are no mistakes in our meeting as the connection was made by God. Yet still, I admire your strength in the Lord and commend you for the work you are doing. Even so, using your life as an example to make a difference in another. May God continue to bless and keep you and yours until eternity. If you should desire to see the connection between us please feel free to do so at God Bless!
