The Story

On Sunday, November 17th Dusty, Misty, baby Myah and their dog Hawkeye were driving home from Church when the sirens went off...

Minutes later, as they turned into their neighborhood, they discovered the tornado had taken everything--their clothes, their furniture, their entire home--all gone. But thankfully, they remained safe and unharmed!

They are now getting ready to embark on a precious journey of rebuilding and starting fresh. Can you imagine one minute having everything you ever need in life and then the very next having it all taken away from you!?!? From the simplest things like your own toothbrush to the irreplaceable items like photos and family treasures...what an overwhelming task to take on!

Let's help ease the burden on them. Let's help them rebuild. Let's help them conquer this journey!

I spoke with Misty tonight and she is holding up the best she can. She's spent the past couple of days going through what is left of her home and has been able to salvage some of her family memories.

She's so amazed and so grateful for everyone reaching out and said she feels bad she can't respond to everyone, but it is all so much. She knows we're all here for her and just a phone call away so please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

And she also said all of the donations are very much appreciated because they don't have storage to hold a lot of items right now. This will allow them to get a game plan together, decide where they will live and then get what they need.

So please share this site with as many people as you can. Even a little bit can go a long way!

Many Thanks!!!!!
