Romona "I'm Not That Special"
Before Founding Safe to Sleep, a women’s shelter, Romona had a life filled with many adventures, yet nothing prepared her for the life changing work she now does with the homeless community...
“From roaming fields and woods with my friends, my BB gun and cowboy boots as a kid, then as an adult cooking something different every night for a month when I was newly married, lugging my baby to the nearby library to get out of the house and practice sketching his little hands, conquering the 70 mile hill in Zimbabwe on a bicycle, riding with mission teams in the back of a pickup truck in Nicaragua – none of that prepared me to walk into a gymnasium in the morning and start calling each of the thirty women in the homeless shelter by name, giving a smile and “good morning", a touch on the shoulder or even a hug. Forcing myself to get up at 4am to check in at Safe to Sleep, I pray that God will allow me to slow down and dispense dignity and grace.” - Romona
