How Today Helps Mrs. Davis

December's devotionals from Joe Huizenga can help you better understand how God is at work—both in Chicago's Roseland community as well as in your own community. We at Today want to share an inspiring story with you that exemplifies the transformative power of faith, community, and the Today devotional booklets.

Mrs. Davis*, a long-standing member of the Roseland community, has been a true pillar of strength for over four decades. She has faced her share of challenges, including a battle with a gambling addiction that once threatened to consume her. However, Mrs. Davis made a courageous decision to change her path and has been an unwavering beacon of hope ever since.

Mrs. Davis is a dedicated member of the Roseland Christian Ministries church, attending prayer meetings and Bible studies four to five days a week. She has not given up on a family member who continues to grapple with addiction, offering ongoing support and prayers.

In her selfless acts of kindness, Mrs. Davis has opened her home to people in need, offering refuge to those facing tough times. She serves as a deacon at her church and is often the first person to request one of the 400 Today devotional booklets we send to Roseland Christian Ministries.

How Today Helps Mrs. Davis

The Today devotional booklets, which feature the same reflections you find on this website, have played a pivotal role in anchoring Mrs. Davis through life's storms. Her dedication to reading them each day provides the strength she needs to face the addiction and trauma that permeates her family and community.

Mrs. Davis's story is a testament to the transformative impact of faith and community support. Her unwavering commitment to her loved ones and her enduring strength in the face of adversity inspire us all.

I invite you to join us in supporting this important ministry work. Your donation will make a meaningful difference in the lives of people who, like Mrs. Davis, rely on the Today devotional booklets for hope and guidance.
