Fall Newsletter – From the Heart

OPEN THE FALL NEWSLETTER OPEN THE NEWSLETTER ARCHIVE When I was in second grade, my family went through a hard year financially. We moved across the country and we were surviving on a school bus driver’s income. Luckily, we had a roof over our head, thanks to a family friend who had taken us in, but I remember eating a lot of soup and buying second-hand clothes for $1.00 a bag. I never wanted my children to experience the shame that comes from comparing yourself to others and feeling that others are looking down on you. As an adult, I…

Mother’s Day 2020

OPEN MS. LA PORTE’S MOTHER’S DAY MESSAGE OPEN THE NEWSLETTER ARCHIVE I had the extreme good fortune to grow up knowing my three great grandmothers, two grandmothers and mother. All six were strong women who put their families first and believed in the power of love and prayer. They also all modeled the importance of being compassionate to everyone at all times, with no exceptions. As time passed, I acquired three other mothers – my husband’s mother, my best friend’s mother and another best friend’s older sister. They too were all cut from the same “mother mold.” My mom was…

Earth Day 2020

LA PORTE’S EARTH DAY MESSAGE OPEN THE NEWSLETTER ARCHIVE The sunrises lately have been spectacular. “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.” (Psalms 19:1) Author Max Lucado suggests, “Nature is God’s first missionary.
