Cookies for a Cause: The Heart of FFNL
I've always found joy and fulfillment in serving others. I'm an Enneagram 2 (if that means anything to you) and haven't spent a single day of my life not knowing Jesus. The combination of those two pieces of information lay a strong foundation for acts of service, but truth be told, it wasn't until my family walked through a life-rocking, heart-breaking, earth-shattering, God-interveining situation that I began to follow through with the blessing that is giving back.
Jeff and my oldest son, Holt, is a cancer survivor. At 2.5 he began what would come to be an approximate 2 year journey of dizzying questions, scary answers, faithful hope, frustrating setbacks, and monumental celebrations where all along the way countless people supported us spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and financially. Now that we are on the other side of childhood cancer, I simply cannot stop myself from trying my best to serve others and give back.
Below you will find an overview of the fundraisers I and the FFNL community have conducted so far. It moves me each time I think about the way God has allowed me to use my tiny business to bless others. 100% of the proceeds raised through my CFC fundraisers go to the families in need. What a blessing, right?! My prayer is that Cookies for a Cause will continue to be the heartbeat of my business and that we will be able to bless an unthinkable amount of families in the years to come!
