Sometimes you can only speak in a whisper. I recently overheard two college girls where one was explaining that she had laryngitis and could only speak in a whisper at that time.
I haven’t had laryngitis, but my blog has been little more than a whisper this summer. Life has been so full with family, major projects at church, additional responsibilities, illness, camp, etc., etc., that I had to set blogging aside for a while.
And then inertia sets in. And as any introvert knows, the longer you stay silent, the harder it is to speak.
Using our voice, changing our world.
This is the blogger motto for World Help bloggers. I’ve technically been a #WHblogger for almost a year now, but my whisper has not been heard. I haven’t spoken up, in part, because I’ve been afraid that my little voice in my little corner of the internet wouldn’t have much impact. I know, it makes little sense, since not saying anything has zero impact.
So, I’m starting with a whisper today:
A – I’m back and blogging (yay!).
B – World Help is a solid non-profit that has been on my radar for years. Founded by one of my college professors, Vernon Brewer, World Help is a faith-based organization that meets the spiritual and physical needs of millions of people around the world through child advocacy, humanitarian aid, education & sustainability, and community development. This video gives a window into some of the work that World Help has been involved with recently:
Thanks for listening to my whisper today. I look forward to sharing more soon.
