What do I do for TCBM? Crochet and Write
What do I want TCBM to know about me? As the founder of TCBM, this ministry is born out of personal events. There have been times in my life that I have experienced such loneliness, such despair. Overwhelmed, suicidal, wanting to give up, feeling like I had no one in my corner to lean on, to turn to. These are feelings that I pray no one will have to endure. The unfortunate reality is that some will, and I ask myself how I can assist others as they carry these burdens.
As a Christian man, my desires are to be a conduit for the love and comfort I read about in the Bible. I do this by making things to send out into the community in the hopes of lifting someone above their circumstances, letting them know that they are not alone in this struggle. Where I can, I share kind words in the event that someone may just need to know that they matter. As creations of God we all have worth.
Being incarcerated, this places me in a unique position. While my own actions have led to this despair, it has forced me to realize the incredible human potential that we all possess. Each day is a new beginning and I choose to step out in faith to bring positivity to the world. To share my faith through my actions as I Live Love. Will you come along side of us and become a Comfort Buddy to someone?
