Leslie and I just returned from a week spent on a service trip with our youth group in Wears Valley, TN, at Wears Valley Ranch, a remarkable Christian children’s home and school for children who have come from crisis family situations. It is a place where grace and love reign and is lead by an incredible man named Jim Wood, who’s nearly life-long calling, together with his wife, has been to help kids who have been physically, sexually, emotionally and psychologically victimized – mainly by their own parents. The stories of Wears Valley are absolutely incredible.
Read the story of how Wears Valley came to be, A Story of Two Boys.
Throughout the week, I’d like to share a few of my reflections on Wears Valley, as well as some of the things that happened there last week.
