Serving at the Shelter

Sherri - Star of Hope High Impact VolunteerI have been a volunteer at the Star of Hope Women & Family Emergency Shelter for almost a year. I am going to tell you how I came to Star of Hope.

My husband and I lived in Singapore for 5 years and were relocated to the Houston area. My 4 children were all grown and I wasn't sure about what to do with the next chapter in my life. I prayed that God would show me what to do. My focus came from Psalm 46:10, "Be still and know that I am God."

After reading about SOH, I donated for holiday meals and different needs they had, but didn't think much more about it. I prayed for 2 years and then one of my friends loaned me a book Same Kind of Different as Me. It was like God slapped me up side of the head. This is it! So, I contacted SOH and here I am.

I volunteer 2 days a week and absolutely love it. The employees are so sincere and loving with the guests. We have some pretty amazing guests as well! They come from all walks of life, but at the end of the day they all have one thing in common and that is that they are God's children and our brothers and sisters through Christ. We all need help at different times in our until my next post... take care and God bless.

I am a deaf school teacher. teaching for HISD. My motto today: Love like there is no tomorrow, Give hugs to those we see crying, and dance the dance of those who's soul have discovered the truth! I would love to volunteer some time after teaching summer school on July 12.

Motivational motto: A creativeman is motivated by the desire to achive, not by the desire to beat others.

Be Blessed
