Come journey with me into the world of the homeless. It began with blankets that led me to a park bench and an incredible man who stole my heart. Sit with me as I visit with a registered sex offender who became changed by grace. Listen as I visit with a man who took a blade to his body and to a young man who used tattoos to hide his pain.
Meet the lady whose abusive father broke all of her fingers and a young lady whose father beat her with a two-by-four. Meet these and others and discover the sweet souls buried beneath their outer self.
God provided me a glimpse of what He sees. At times, it was overwhelming and at times inspirational. Whether from under the bridge or the downtown park, so many forgotten people shared their lives with me. From those others have shunned, I experienced love. In places I could not have imagined, I witnessed beauty, grace, and strength.
Join me as I introduce you to my homeless friends, and stand ready for your heart to change when you see them through the eyes of Jesus.
