Celebrating hard-working women this Mother's Day

"I build because it is the epitome of a community coming together for one purpose and serving a greater cause."

Meet Susan, future Habitat for Humanity homeowner

Life is full of dreams and desires waiting to be fulfilled, as well as many hardships to overcome. Some people enjoy going through these processes, and all the ups and downs, whereas others can only find joy when the trials are over!

I can identify with all ends of the spectrum, but through my own journey, I’ve come to realize that contentment comes with being at peace and recognizing that each day is a gift. Opportunities are endless.  

I’m a big proponent of never giving up hope and of stepping out and trying something new - you never know what’s waiting on the other side! 



As a single mother, I can often find myself short of time, energy, and other resources. My children look to me for guidance and support, the normal demands of work, and most recently, finding strength to come along side of my mother to support her through her Dementia diagnosis.

Managing and coping through these struggles has not been easy on my own; however, I have found much relief and joy through the help of those around me.  

The burden is light when we help carry each other’s load.  We are meant to help and serve one another in life because that can truly change the course of someone’s life.
