My Shared Faith is an organization that provides assistance to individuals experiencing distress within our communities.
During the care of my mother, who suffered an aneurysm prior to her death in 2013, depression and anxiety took over my life on a spiritual, emotional, and physical level. Due to this experience, I created a card to encourage others in my situation.
The card simply reads: “You are not alone” with my favorite scripture, Isaiah 41:10.
God says “fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
I began to pass out these cards in the hope that no one would have to go through what I did. As a Christian, I wanted to share my faith at a time when it was most needed.
In 2014 My Shared Faith was born, through our inspirational gifts (containing a message of hope inside) and support services I hope to address the mental and emotional challenges so many of us experience during times of despair.
Our gift set is provided at no cost to nonprofit partners who help us get our message of hope to as many people in the community as possible.
In addition, we are building a wonderful chat platform, staffed with trained volunteers to provide a safe place for individuals to chat freely about their concerns. Our service will provide a listening ear, resources, and referral services at no cost to the recipient.
It is my prayer that you will join me in this work, and as a result, we can strengthen our communities together.
My Shared Faith aims to:
Provide support to individuals who need human interaction
Encourage individuals who could benefit from a message of hope
Provide emotional and mental health resources and referral services
Volunteer your time to help us get the word out or help us package gift sets to deliver to our partners during the holiday season.
The gift set can also be purchased by individuals who wish to give a message of hope to friends or family. The proceeds from purchases are used to provide more gift sets to our partners to give to individuals in the community currently experiencing pain, loss, and discouragement.
Financial donations are also accepted and will be used to provide additional gift sets to the community and chat support services.
Donations are tax-deductible.
Thank you in advance for your support.
