Our newest mommy spotlight! ?
Hey, y'all! Happy Wednesday!
It is my hope that this blog finds you all well and in good spirits like me. I feel good today, y'all! I just completed a 21-day Daniel(ish) Fast with my church and it has been a LIFE-CHANGING experience! Let me know if y'all wanna hear more about it and I'll be glad to share it with you.
As promised, the last blog of the month will highlight one of our very special single moms. Since they are all special, we will simply be taking turns. This month, we will be highlighting Autumn Walters! Autumn is the baby of our village and she relishes every moment of it. Autumn is kind, loving, and absolutely adorable. She has two babies, Zaire who is 4, and Zion who is 1. These are my faux grandbabies, just so you know. Autumn also encouraged her mom, Erica, to join and now they both are a part of our community! I told y'all it was a family affair.
Autumn and I had a chat this week to talk about IAMSK and here is what she had to say;
Me: What do you love about IAMSK?
Autumn: I could go on and on about the things I love about IAMSK, but what I love the most is the sense of community. I always feel included, like I can be myself with no judgment. I love being part of a real, active village of love, support, and even useful resources and learning.
Me: What keeps you coming back to IAMSK?
Autumn: What keeps me coming back is the fact that there are endless opportunities to learn and grow. I feel like being part of IAMSK is helping me to develop into the woman that I want to be and I love that for me!
In one of our previous Zoom sessions ( you know, the ones we have every other Wednesday and every Friday?), Autumn shared with the group that she had been at her job for over a year and that she could not have done that without this village. Because Autumn has been provided with a safe space to discuss her work struggles and to be bestowed with the wisdom of her sisters, she was able to take away valuable insights and carry them back to her workplace. A 23-year-old staying on her job for a year is a BIG deal!
Thank you for taking the time to read these emails. I hope you all enjoyed learning more about Autumn and the many ways IAMSK is a benefit to single moms in our Memphis community. Don't forget! Y'all can respond to these emails. Please feel free to share any thoughts or questions you may have. And let me know if y'all wanna hear more about the Daniel(ish) Fast.
