story of hope [Jamie] [IJM]

this story won’t leave my mind, so I’m bringing it to you today.  a story of hope, and healing, and justice being done.

do you remember when I told you about Jamie?  beautiful Jamie, who was walking, and laughing and singing with us around the table in Kigali?

This is her story.

and this is not ok.  this everyday violence is what plauges third world countries like Rwanda, and hurts beautiful people like Jamie.  it is NOT OK.

but IJM is doing something about it.  the took her to safety, they helped her get prosthetic legs, they spoke into who she was and how she is beautiful and loved.

they got her counseling, and helped her find a home with other children with disabilities.

their lawyers convicted her abusers.

and they placed Jamie in a rehabilitation center where she learned to walk again!

Hey, I'm Wynne!

Hi, friend! First, I truly am so giddy that you are here. I want you to know I believe in you and all the ways you are growing towards living a more intentional life.  I genuinely hope you are encouraged from our time together here.

A little about me, I’m a type 7 on the enneagram, a total extrovert + people lover, entrepreneur, connector, storyteller, people gatherer, and passionate wife, mama + friend. I feel most alive when I’m exploring new places and surrounded by people I love. Give me a day in the outdoors disconnected from wifi, and I am a happy girl. I run on oat milk lattes, Jesus, gratitude journaling and kitchen dance parties with my four kids.
Welcome, come on in!

let'e be friends

    Her smile just brings so much joy and light. I appreciate that you share her story. I appreciate that you don’t just talk about something once, but that you come back to it and to how it is affecting your heart and actions. Not allowing it to just become a sad story that everyone can read once and move on from. I think the world needs more of that and I am so glad you are willing to be a part of it. Be blessed, Wynne.
