Finding Joy in June

Simple Steps to #BeTheLight

You’ve likely heard us say that “you can’t pour from and empty cup.” We know that in order to Be The Light for others, it’s vital to take care of ourselves.  So this month, join us by finding the things that bring you joy.  It may be as simple as taking a walk, having a cup of morning coffee or listening to your favorite song.

Will you spend just 5 minutes each day doing something that brings you joy?

1) Reflect on those things that bring you joy.

2) Take just 5 minutes a day and do those things that brings you joy!

3) Make a gift if you are able to fund to-go meals for David’s Refuge families. Every donation serves the dual purpose of loving a   vulnerable population and investing in local businesses.


We’re here to help

Are you feeling anxious, lonely or disconnected? Do you feel like no one understands how hard this is for families with special needs? Would having someone just listen go a long way right now?

The David’s Refuge Hosts who join you on weekend respite are available to connect with you. Be bold and make a request today.

Caregivers, our team stands with you during this unprecedented time, always searching for new ways to remind you that you are not alone, what you do matters, and God and this community loves you.
