My Mom…From the Be the Gift Kids

By |Projects|

We speak often of the delightful Single Moms we are privileged to help each and every week.  We have yet to share the voices of the children we hear from who ask us to help their mom and family.  Many are happy and well-adjusted yet there are those that if you read between the lines, you will [...]

Hands and Feet

By |Projects|

Be the Gift is such a blessing to me and my children in a BIG way.  All that they have done spoke wonders to me, my family and my extended family.  I have been serving the Lord for a little over five years now and have spoken to them about how good God is.  Them [...]

My name is Christian Walter and I have a great wife of 10 years named Evelyn and 2 awesome daughters Elizabeth (7 yrs) and Anna (6 yrs).  I've had the privilege of being the stay-at-home parent in our family for going on 7 years this summer; something which I'm sure I won't fully appreciate until [...]

Four Generations

Next Month, Next Paycheck, Next Year

By |Projects|

Carry with Compassion

By |Projects|

We were contacted by a sweet lady requesting help for her friend. It reminds us of a bible verse in the book of Galatians chapter 6 that says to "Carry each others burdens". The translation of the word burdens here is emptiness and void. So in essence by her simply taking the time and initiative of asking BTG to help [...]

A Volkswagen Bug and Mountains of Leaves

By |Projects|

We love helping in any way we can, even when it is as simple as hauling away several bags of leaves.  After receiving this thank you note from a single mom, we are reminded again about how the simple things make the biggest difference. "I'm a single mother, working full time and maintaining a freelance [...]

Thank You, Be the Gift

By |Projects|

Our volunteers spent the day putting in new flooring to be sure the home was a clean, healthy place to continue raising her children.  While several volunteers worked on the flooring, others put in brand new window coverings, gave the walls some fresh paint, cleaned the kitchen, trimmed branches in the backyard, and spent time loving [...]
