This is probably our favorite campaign of the year!Give One to Give Her Wings ! Our mamas are in terrible adversity, and every spare penny goes to the needs of the children. We love the opportunity to give them some pampering that they so deserve.
Our little flock has grown so much in the past year, and we know that God is using this ministry to ease suffering and we want to thank you for caring! Please share our September campaign with your friends! We can’t wait to bless our mamas with a dinner out, a movie, or simply a good book!
**Please confirm which gift you are giving in the notes section of checkout. Some of our gifts have multiple pricing options to make giving possible for everyone!Be sure to choose the option you prefer where applicable.
Friends!! I cannot even begin to tell you all the ways that we are seeing God’s hand at work here at Give Her Wings. Being behind the curtain can be a scary, yet exhilarating place to be!
We have taken on several new mamas since our last blog post, both as financial mamas and encouragement mamas. We are currently in the vetting process for quite a few more! God is providing at every turn. And while we get super excited when we see what God is doing for our ministry and allowing us to move forward and grow, we are MOST excited … ecstatic even… when we see what He is doing in the lives of our mamas.
While I want to spend a little time today telling you about one of our newest mamas, I want you to be on the lookout for new blogs and stories about the ladies we call our veterans. These mamas have been with us for awhile now, and we have asked them to start sharing their “success” stories with you all. Let me tell you though, that here at Give Her Wings, we might define success a little differently than most. But you will see what I mean when those stories start rolling out. If you haven’t signed up for our newsletter, now is the time!! (You can do this at the bottom of the page 😉 ) You won’t want to miss these stories as we publish them!
If you aren’t on our newsletter list, you might have not heard about “Mandy.” This sweet mama chose this alias as it holds a very special place in her heart and in the story of her fight to be free from abuse.
After twenty years of being told that she was completely unworthy love, her self worth had diminished to near nothing. While she still struggles with the lies of never being good enough, smart enough, modest enough, submissive enough….the list goes on and on…she found something special in this name. Amanda means “Worthy of Love”. She believes God led her to that name to allow her to see the true meaning behind it.
This sweet mama and her precious children have endured abuse in almost every capacity. Currently, she is fighting against the lies he is perpetrating against her in court in an effort to keep her children, get them into a healthy and safe environment, and just be free. Please keep her in your prayers as every day is a struggle.
We thank everyone who has helped us financially and in prayer to support our mamas as they take one step at a time toward freedom…and realizing their true worth.
Thank you so much to everyone who donated to our Galentine’s Day Campaign! Our mamas were thrilled with their gifts that our lovely Audrey put together, with the artwork completed by Christin Hunt at Hope of Glory Designs!! You can find Christin on Facebook by clicking HERE!
Our February Mamas!!
With your generous support, we were also able to help two mamas this month.
We’ve been following “Little Sparrow’s” story for a while now, waiting for her situation to meet all of Give Her Wings’ vetting requirements. We have named her “Little Sparrow” because she is so exhausted, from life, and she reminds of us a sweet, precious bird — the kind that God has His eye on. But, she doesn’t know about her wings, yet, due to being bone-weary. It will take her a while. She has had to take on so much pressure to keep her four children moving forward and keep their new household afloat.
Sparrow tried to leave three years ago but found out she was pregnant with her fourth child and returned. Her ex husband has been extremely controlling, in general, but especially financially and verbally. He became particularly abusive during her pregnancy, when she was most vulnerable (as is often the case). She has told us that the abuse was more intense when she tried to get closer to God and grow stronger in Him. This is very typical for abusers. When the target of blame and abuse begins to show some independent thought, abusers grip their victim even tighter, making it near impossible for her to leave — which is why Little Sparrow is so incredibly brave. Until recently, this sweet mama was very isolated. She recently tried to change churches and attend a Bible Study. However, her ex husband followed and circumvented any relationship she may have had with them. We are doing all we can to be the Church to Sparrow, right now, so that she can see that Jesus still has His eye on her — and cares very, very much.
Little Sparrow’s primary concern now is being able to feed the children and get them some counseling.This mama is hurting, dear friends, and we need your help. All donations from February are going to help both of our precious February mamas. Will you help? We love this dear lady with the broken wings. Pray for her, please.
Hope has been a victim of emotional and physical abuse at the hand of her husband since before they were married. She witnessed abuse in her family as a child, and because of this example, she didn’t think it was uncommon when she married him. The abuse has extended to her children and included horrific threats of violence beyond the things he has already done.
Hope is thankful for the job she has, but it is still very difficult to care for herself and her three beautiful children with limited salary. And with her previous car breaking down, she has incurred even more unexpected bills, insurance, and other things on top of her regular financial obligations.
Even with this, Hope continues to work and still homeschools her children, as well. Her biggest desire is that she can continue to raise her children well and in the Lord!
This precious lady, with all her hard work, still needs help to make ends meet and be able to take care of her sweet children. Please pray for her, for their safety, and that God will bless them with continued provision.
