I had the privilege of being honored as one of the recipients of the Williams Company 2011 Williams Women of Inspiration. I, along with 4 other Tulsa-area women, were recognized at the July 28th Tulsa Shock WNBA game. The Williams Women of Inspiration Award recognizes positive influence, service and dedication in the community. I was a part of an amazing group of women striving everyday to make a difference in the community and in the state of Oklahoma. I was blessed to receive this honor because of work with my charitable endeavors Shower of Hope Oklahoma - Hamil Family and Shower of Hope Oklahoma.
Being recognized in such a public way was a little overwhelming, but I felt so humbled and so blessed. I think of the passage Luke 16:10: "Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much..." I'm so thankful that God placed this desire in my heart and trusted me to see it through. I'm glad I was obedient to the calling because God blessed the endeavors of Shower of Hope Oklahoma exceedingly and abundantly.
Not only did the endeavors of Shower of Hope Oklahoma bless the Hamil family and other families in need, but it was such a blessing to me. I was amazed at the outpouring of love and support from so many people. Without God, the amazing support of my family and new Shower of Hope Oklahoma friends on Facebook and this blog, this honor wouldn't have been made possible. Thank you!
I had the honor of being featured as the January 2012 Diapershops.com "Spotlight Mom" and was able to talk about Shower of Hope Oklahoma and my passion to help others. I'm pictured with my two little boys... my pride, my joy and my inspiration.
