On March 30th I will be participating in Shield Bearer's Running for Hearts 5K.  This will be my first year participating in this event and I can't wait! I connected with Shield Bearer in the fall of 2018 after starting my business, Next Step Divorce Solutions. My desire was to develop relationships with Christian family therapists who had a passion for showing Christ's love. I had heard about Shield Bearer and was anxious to learn more. It didn't take long to find out that they love to serve people! Shield Bearer trusts God to provide the necessary means and avenue to offer several counseling services to our community. They started in 2005 with a central idea to help build strong marriages and healthy families.  Since then their services have only grown including counseling and seminars for Harvey victims and first responders, human trafficking victims, veterans and their families and so much more. Please "run" with me by donating TODAY, every little amount helps! THANK YOU for supporting Shield Bearer and their ability to serve our community!
