Making a Difference



Renee Swope discusses the moment God reminded her that she was making a big difference.

Do you ever feel like what you do doesn’t really make a big difference? Hi, I'm Renee Swope for Proverbs 31 Ministries.

The other day I asked God to show me how I could use my resources to help others. I felt like I wasn’t doing enough and wanted to make a bigger impact. Surprisingly, He reminded me how our family is doing something already that doing WAS making a difference.
I remembered a few years ago, when our family went to Ethiopia to adopt our daughter, and we got to meet a teenage girl we’d sponsored for 13 years through Compassion International. We saw how the money we'd send each month provides food, medical care, education, and, the message of God’s love through the sponsorship program in Ethiopia.

I didn’t realize that check we write once a month really makes such big a difference but God reminded me that for one family its a huge impact!
