Giver of Good Gifts: Felicity’s Story

Giver of Good Gifts: Felicity’s Story
By Kaylee Poston

“For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully” (Rom. 12:4–­­8).

Celebrating 20 Years of Christian Women's Job Corps

Flo speaking to CWJC partcipants

After hearing the diagnosis, she asked the doctor, “How long do I have to live?” The doctor said, “Two months, maybe three.” That was more than 50 months ago. Flo (pictured at right) intends to minister in Christ’s name through Christian Women’s Job Corps (CWJC) until she draws her dying breath.

“Looking at women who came in broken and left whole, I knew this was where I was meant to be,” Flo said. “I thank God every day for the gift of love. I fell in love with them and knew this was where I could make a difference; I felt like this was my purpose.”

She added, “How awesome it is to enjoy what your purpose is—ministering and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ.”

CWJC Site Spotlight: Begin Anew
By Kaylee Poston

“I do believe that every day God hears the cries and prayers of [people] in our community seeking to overcome the obstacles caused by poverty.”

These words spoken by Rebekah Sumrall reflect the heart of Begin Anew, a Christian Women’s Job Corps site impacting Middle Tennessee. Sumrall serves as executive director for Begin Anew. Through this program, men and women are taught job and life skills that empower them to rise up out of poverty and find hope for their futures.

Erica's Story

Every morning at 3 a.m., Erica* begins her day. She wakes up and readies herself for the same full-time cashier job she has diligently held for 11 years. She awakens her two young sons once she is ready, drives them to her mother’s house, and reports to work by 4 a.m. After work, she picks up her sons and returns to her apartment to prepare for the same schedule the next day.

After 11 years and minimal pay raises, Erica knew something had to change. She wanted more for her children than the life she had now; she wanted to provide them with a home and a bright future. She began researching options to help prepare herself for the high school equivalency test. During that research, she stumbled upon something from her past.
