My desire is not only to create a space to cultivate your sewing skills, but also to offer a place that’s an occasional home to be encouraged, refreshed and brought to life.

Every orphan deserves a future with a family. 

Every Orphan’s Hope helps to create new families with 12 widow-headed family homes serving 96 orphans in Zambia, Africa. EOH also has built a center with 4 homes caring for 40 babies who have been abandoned or orphaned shortly after birth. It’s an amazing ministry with an incredible story of what God has done in the lives of these precious children halfway around the world.

Here are some posts I wrote about my trip to Zambia and my experience working with the staff, mama’s and children at Every Orphan’s Hope:
