Loved. Valued. Worthy.
The story behind our nonprofit name originates from Ephesians 3:17-19, which states just how abundant God’s love is for all of us. Individuals with disabilities are often viewed and described as less, broken, and defective by worldly standards. We spread awareness about how we can fully rest in knowing how valued, loved, and worthy we all are in His love that surpasses knowledge. Our Nonprofit aims to shout the worth and value into ALL lives through our various programs, podcast, merchandise and books!
“And I pray that you, bring rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this 𝐥𝐨𝐯𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐬𝐮𝐫𝐩𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐞𝐬 𝐤𝐧𝐨𝐰𝐥𝐞𝐝𝐠𝐞.” Ephesians 3:17-19
Meet Our Founder
Down syndrome was a diagnosis that our family was so familiar with due to my husband’s younger brother, Isaac. My husband was 7 years old when Isaac was born and the love our family has for Isaac has always been plentiful.
The day we received the call that our second child, Emmett, would have Down Syndrome was world stopping. It was something that we never imagined would impact our family twice. As a sibling, my husband knew how much love we would have to give our son. He continued to remind me of this love even when I was full of doubt and fear. He gave me hope, reassurance, and glimpses of the love he saw growing up as a child.
After Emmett was born, I knew I wanted to share our story and help others who were going through the emotions of having a prenatal diagnosis. Little did I know that my unique journey with both of my children would be the springboard that launched me from grief into complete joy and dependence on the Lord.
There once was a time where I felt robbed of a "normal motherhood" experience but the Lord is gracious and didn't allow me to stay in that place. The key things that have spoken LIFE into this journey have been learning to recognize the Lord's truth vs. the lies of the enemy and partnering with the Lord in declarations of who He has called my children to be since before they were born.
My greatest prayer for each and every family who is impacted by our ministry is that they would be able to receive the revelation of how wide, long, high, and deep the love of God has for every single person on this earth. That you would know His love that surpasses your understanding over yourself and your children.
In 2021, our ministry decided to prepare the expansion to include all disabilities which was inspired by our other team members and their children with disabilities.
