The Bible story of David defeating Goliath is one being told every week. Taught in different languages. Being used in different religions. Spoken in different countries. In case if you haven't heard it, the moral of the story is to use what you have and believe.

The time has now come to share our DIY Helping Homeless Project with the world. After a year and several of our own interactions, we know homelessness isn't to be fixed by government.

There's nothing like drinking a glass of water when you dehydrated. The ice cold water is refreshing. It immediately quenches your thirst. That's how I felt with The 5 Life Stages of Nonprofit Organizations.
This book gave me that sensation. My desire was fulfilled. Someone actually understood what I was going through. Thank heavens. A big thank you to Judith Sharken Simon, along with the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation. They did a phenomenal job organizing the book.

In the meantime, Dream Big and Godspeed.
