I have been eager to share this email with you and you will see why as you read. When I write, I often share my thoughts about life at Changed Choices or a situation we are working through or a challenge or need. This story is different.
In the office, we have a credenza with our staff mailboxes and staff related information. I came into the office several weeks ago and noticed the credenza top was covered with cards from our clients. I paused a moment to read each one and it touched my heart. I immediately thought, “I need to share these with our partners.”
Every word written is from our clients to everyone who makes up Changed Choices. That includes YOU! let me pull back the curtain for a moment and share some thoughts from the clients themselves. Be encouraged as you read their words to you:
Thank you so much for the support to continue my counseling with the boys! I will never be able to repay you! Your continued support is so appreciated!
Thank you all for all that you do for me each day. Thank you for all your prayers.

I hope that encourages your heart today. You are having an impact in the lives of women – some are mothers and grandmothers. That means your influence goes beyond the women to their children and grandchildren too! Thank you for partnering with us.
