I’ve always had BIG DREAMS but never had the courage to act on them until I launched an online store called FIG TREE last June. There’s an unmistakable similarity between pieces I restore and people who are hurting and broken. My dream is to have extra income for my family and to help fund TOM (Together Overcoming Mountains), an organization I began in memory of my son as a reminder that “Together with God and those he has placed around us, we can Overcome even the most daunting Mountains.” Last June I never imagined how much my life was going to change.

If chosen, it will give FIG TREE and TOM tools and exposure to take flight and literally give me a stage to tell my story of hope, restoration, and freedom.

Or maybe it is a combination of factors that have influenced the way I...
