You CAN DO it!

 Today Monday, March 8th, is International Women's Day!  
So, I thought this was the perfect opportunity to share this story....

Ten years ago, my dear friend Marguerite and I were both actively volunteering for Habitat for Humanity with our local church builds.  We noticed that when a challenging task was at hand, working on the roof or a loud, scary power tool, for example, we were gently nudged aside by the big, strong men on the worksite!  
Hey! I can do that, we'd say.... and the CAN DO CREW was born!

For the next two years we gathered friends and co-workers, raised the funds and went to work.  On Mothers Day weekend in 2013 we dedicated our first "Women Build" home for Habitat!  Since then we've completed two more houses as well as many projects to better our community... and we've had a whole lot of fun in the process!

When we started we had no clue where to begin, 
but with the inspiration of Ephesians 2:10 we jumped in.

"For we are Gods handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God has prepared in advance for us to do."

What challenge are you facing?  

A favorite expression of mine is "God can't steer a parked car!"  
It's time to get in gear and let God show you the way.  It might be straight up the face of the mountain, or it might be along a meandering path through the back woods along a path to the top...  either way, He knows the way and He will lead you on the path you are meant to go on.   And best yet... when you get there the view is terrific.

You CAN DO it!!
