Hey guys I'm Courtney LaRae,
First I'd just like to say thanks in advanced for helping me give back. As some of you may already know i'm a single mom of two boys 7 and 14.
One of the hardest things life has ever thrown at me was the transition from being a wife with a seemingly thriving house hold to a single mother with no income.
At the time, the boys were 3 and 9. I was a stay at home mom and I had never had the responsibility of taking care of a house hold. I quickly found a job and even with the income I had no car.
Uber took a huge amount of my income($67 a day) and so did child care($500 a month). It was rough for me in the beginning. There were many days when my lights and water were off and I found myself forgoing lunch at work to make sure we had dinner at night.
Though adversities were all around me I trusted God and he was faithful. I remained faithful in church and I still gave my time through worship every Sunday and bible study during the week. Few people even knew of my struggles.
My relationship grew deeper in God and I found peace in my storm. God continually reminded me through strangers, friends, and family that I was not alone. People gave me clothes and food. I even remember a time when a perfect stranger fixed my car, I believe that man was heaven sent. I can truly say God has kept me.
Fast forwarding 5yrs and a lot prayer lol, I'm ready to share my story and help other moms like me. One of my biggest needs was clothing for work and school clothes for my growing boys.
My mission is to assist single mothers with clothing, feminine and oral hygiene products, as well as financial and educational development resources for sustainability but, I need your help.
