Make it Happen Mondays

All over the USA, Seniors are using their years of experience and knowledge in a servant leadership capacity in their communities. They are volunteering their services when needed. On Mondays we are looking forward to sharing the stories of some of these "make it happen" senior volunteers along with interesting volunteering opportunities.

I Am Second

On Sunday I learned about this group because my pastor is part of it. He can be seen on a billboard not one mile from the place where he tragically lost a dear family member many years ago.

This site features people from all walks of life who have volunteered their stories on video. Such diverse professions as:

Josh Hamilton, baseball player
Alec Baldwin, Actor
Jason Witten, football player
Joe Gibbs, Football coach
Jack Graham, Pastor
Darrell Waltrip, a Race Car Driver
Ashley Rawls, Photographer
Brian Welch, guitarist/co-founder of the band Korn

And others less famous but just as touching.

Here is what the I am Second website says about its mission:

"I am Second is a movement where significance of life is a shared value among people of all kinds. Actors. Athletes. Musicians. Business leaders. Your next door neighbor. People just like you. The authentic stories on provide insight into dealing with typical struggles of everyday living. You'll meet people who overcome destructive lifestyles. Plus you'll discover those who tried to go it alone and have failed, yet still found a life full of hope, peace and fulfillment.

We all have needs and could use some help. Here you will find issues relevant to you as well as challenges to life questions. Within their website you can connect with a live person by phone, chat or email, 24 hours a day. You can link with I am Second groups in your community and can even get involved in helping others."
