My husband Stephen, Molly and me

August is always such a busy month! In our home, August is also a special month filled with cake, ice cream, friends and presents. On August 7th, my daughter Molly turned 8 years old, and she'll soon start third grade.

While most 8 year olds may be busy playing video games or riding bikes, Molly (like Belle, the princess she most loves) tends to have her nose stuck in a book. If not, she can be found writing her very own books complete with preface and author’s note.

Her latest book is titled "The World I See."

STATESVILLE, NC--Our Towns Habitat for Humanity plans to open a third Habitat ReStore in Statesville by the end of the year. The new location will be in a prime retail location, at 1893 E. Broad Street, in the Bi-Lo shopping center, next to Planet Fitness.

Habitat ReStores support affordable housing by reselling donated new and gently used items to the public, with all proceeds benefitting Our Towns Habitat’s homeownership and critical repair programs. Merchandise offered at the new Statesville location will include furniture, appliances, building materials, home décor and other home improvement supplies.

Elevation Church’s Love Week is seven days out of every year dedicated to service, compassion and giving. The congregation partners with more than 200 charities to donate time and effort to those who need it most.

Love Week 2017 began on July 22 and will end July 29, and Elevation Church has once again partnered with Our Towns Habitat for Humanity to aid us in building homes and renewing hope in our communities. 

Because of your support, Our Towns Habitat for Humanity dedicated three new homes last month. Thanks to you, Shameca and her two children have a new home in Statesville; Gregoria and her three children have a new home in Cornelius; and Nicky and her two sons have a new home in Mooresville.

One of those homes belongs to the family of a 6-year-old girl named Persia. When I asked Persia, “Which room is yours?” Persia answered, “The BIGGEST one!”
