All in the family…

When someone new comes to volunteer at Runnin’ WJ or we receive a new “like” on our Facebook page, we consider them “family”. Chloe

The staff, volunteers, our students and even our horses are part of the Ranch family. When a new face walks through our door, it’s inevitable-they’re part of the family.

jacob and mrs beckySo if you walk through our front door burdened with life, with a heavy weight on your shoulders, feel free to leave the weight behind. Find your spot in our rocking chair or on the broken-in couch.

Look out the large windows and see what’s going on in the arena. Volunteers are smiling. Children are laughing. There is a love exchange happening. You may just forget about that weight you were carrying  just seconds ago.

When life gets hard…when something is going on outside our walls…we can always count on our Ranch family to pray…to walk alongside us and carry the load.

The Bible tells us to “Carry one another’s burdens; in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2). That’s what we strive to do at the Ranch.

If you are burdened today, feel free to record your need for prayer on our volunteer board. Leave it there and consider it covered.

God dwells here. 

That’s why Sam Clem, our Executive Director, stays on his knees every morning. That’s why our staff feels loved and we strive to spill over that love to our volunteers and our students.

So, when you walk through the door today, make yourself at home.

Because, you’re among family.
