Sending School Supplies
The Earls Fam Foundation kicked off a special project in August, 2019. This project focused specifically on providing school supplies for students, just in time for the start of the school year! We are rooting for you, students!
Meet Kristy and Her Family!
The past ten years seem to be one step forward, two steps back for Kristy, a long-time Earls Fam community member. Kristy’s husband Keith was in a terrible car accident ten years ago. He was in a coma for five weeks and was not expected to survive. With God’s blessing, he did live! Though he continually struggles with the ramifications of this traumatic brain injury, Kristy thanks God every day for his miracle!
Kait is Keith and Kristy’s oldest child. She is legally blind and has been diagnosed with Aspergers. She is an amazing artist and very technologically minded. But, since her father’s accident, has struggled with severe anxiety and depression.
Madison is the youngest of the family and is going into 10th grade. Though she struggles with Type 1 Diabetes and missed almost 40 days of school last year due to illness, she is a bright girl and is continually on the merritt's list. She is a self-taught musician and “the strongest girl” Kristy knows!
Almost seven years ago, the family faced another huge step back as Kristy was diagnosed with a meningioma brain tumor. It is non cancerous but inoperable. Kristy also recently had both knees replaced and is so frequently needed to be her daughters’ caregiver, she can no longer work full-time. Due to Keith’s brain injury, he suffers from memory issues and struggles to find reliable, long-term work.
The family struggles to keep up with the bills and medical supplies and can’t seem to ever catch up or get ahead. The Earls Fam Foundation was able to provide a small break for this sweet family and provide all Madison’s school supplies. Kristy said, “I am forever grateful to the Earls Fam for their generosity and love!! Even something as simple as pencils brightened her mood! Madison was so excited to see the supplies it was like Christmas for her!!”
Join us as we pray for the health and wellbeing of this family, that they may feel God’s healing hand and perfect provision while they each continue to love God, love people, make a difference, and be thankful.
Meet Dianne and Her Class!
Dianne is a 6th grade special education teacher in Georgia. She just recently moved to a new school where the students are struggling. Dianne is drawn to students in need and felt pulled to help those less fortunate and to do more in her community, especially since discovering the Earls Fam.
Dianne says she watches the family vlogs nearly every day and is moved and motivated by the way the Earls strive to help others. One day, after praying for a way to help her students, Dianne heard about the Earls Fam Foundation’s School Supplies Project. Dianne said it was an answer to prayer as the Foundation was able to provide the school supplies for ten of her students.
Please lift Dianne up in prayer this school year. Pray for peace, wisdom, and strength as she continues to bravely lead her students while loving God, loving people, making a difference, and being thankful, in and out of her classroom.
Meet Lauren and Her Family!
Lauren and her husband, inspired by his mother who was a foster and adoptive parent, adopted two children three years ago. Today, Miah and Kyle are going into 4th and 6th grade and are a joy to the family and are excited to head back to school!
After a recent betrayal by a friend and an expensive move out-of-state, Lauren and her family were facing a tight budget with little funds for the kid’s school supplies. The Earls Fam Foundation was able to send both Miah and Kyle all the supplies they need for the coming school year.
Lauren, who has been following the Earls Fam for over a year, loved seeing Leo meet Wyatt for the very first time. She is often encouraged by the vlogs and strives to embody they family’s moto. Please pray that Lauren and her family’s finances stabilize, the kids thrive in school, and the family all continue to love God, love people, make a difference, and be thankful, always.
