The March Share the Plate recipient will be CASA of Denton County. You can read about Casa here.
When a child enters the foster care system because his or her home is no longer safe, a judge may appoint a committed volunteer to help them. That volunteer is called a Court Appointed Special Advocate®, or CASA. CASA volunteers are screened, highly trained and then appointed by judges to represent and advocate for a child’s best interests in the child protection system. CASA continues to provide valuable volunteer advocacy for every abused child in this area. These volunteers bring three critical qualities to their work: they focus on one case at a time; they bring a unique perspective to the court case; and their sole objective is representing the best interests of the child.
Every investment in CASA of Denton County, increases their ability to serve more abused and neglected children in North Texas. With your support they are one step closer to serving every child eligible for CASA services in the county. Gifts of all sizes make a difference and are immeasurable to the life of a child navigating the child welfare system.

“Work, love and play are the great balance wheels of our being”
– Orison Swett Marden
"Balanced Rock" is one of the most stunning features of Arches National Park in Utah. I know this because I saw it on my way to my first ministry eight years ago. It was a reminder that I am constantly seeking balance. Ironically, the rock is not really balanced. One large boulder sits attached to an eroding pedestal. Eventually the boulder will fall, just like our lives eventually fall out of balance. Unlike the boulder, we will come back into balance eventually.
