And Suddenly it is Christmas Preparation
Here at TLC we have decided to celebrate our glorious sunny skies and swaying palm trees with an event we are calling Christmas in Paradise. We hope you will be able to join us for this first annual event on Saturday December 21, 2019.
It's is a busy time of year for Santa, but he has promised to stop by so families can capture their precious memories on film. We know you will be busy that day too, so we are offering a break from all that shopping and cooking. Come from 1-5 PM and enjoy a luncheon with us at the Brooksville Women’s Club on 131 So. Main Street in downtown Brooksville. For ticket inquiries call Barbara at 352 597 0119, Your $25 ticket will go toward helping support single moms all year long. Remember Mary? The young mother who sought safe shelter for the birth of her infant? Safe shelter is still needed by young moms and their babies. Please help.

After more than 6 years of ministering at The Life Center, we finally understand we can't help someone who doesn't want to be helped. We can provide a bed for a homeless mom which will give her a place to live. Bettering herself long term is an entirely different matter.
We believe TLC staff is on the right track for helping a young mom get focused on what she needs to do to benefit most from her stay at TLC. One thing we do is to award certificates for completion of the various goals in our program. Setting achievable goals and receiving a small token of recognition paves the way for future success.
The families who come to TLC often need to do a great deal of catch up and sometimes a complete turn around. This is easier said than done, especially when a young mom is already caring for a small child or two or three. It can be overwhelming even knowing where to start. Our volunteers are always ready to lend a hand, but we recognize that a life changing experience of a much greater magnitude is needed. They need God. Here you see four TLC moms sitting in a pew waiting for church to begin. They know, we know, you know: Nothing is too big for God.
BITS AND PIECES
Are you wondering whatever happened to all that money the Lightning Foundation awarded TLC? We spent $11,570 for a new roof on the main house and the adult education building. A new roof is a long term investment. It demonstrates our intent to continue offering services to young moms well into the future. Operating expenses and general maintenance are usually covered by local individuals and businesses. An item as expensive as a new roof just isn’t in the budget unless a group like the Lightning Foundation comes along side and makes it possible. We are very pleased and very grateful for every donation of time or money. Our one regret is that we aren’t helping more families in desperate need. Please do what you can. TLC needs more volunteers! Come join our team. None of us gets paid in dollars, but we do get lots of hugs and smiles. If you can give an hour or more a week, please message barb_Lemoine@Yahoo.com Don’t let your age or anything else stop you from volunteering! Good news!
