Making A Difference Together
As we usher in the month of November and bask in the beauty of fall, let's continue to show gratitude for all we have. Despite all the worldly chaos going on around us, it's important to nurture our relationships with self and others.
Unstoppable You Ministries was busy working in the trenches shining a light in the dark places of domestic violence during the month of October. On October 3rd we hosted a Virtual Paint Party Fundraiser. There were 34 women who participated in this empowering and fun event. UYM felt blessed to sponsor tickets for 11 domestic violence survivors to attend. #FearfullyandWonderfullyMade
On October 18th, with the support of Pastor Rob McNutt and the Faith Bible Church leadership, UYM was able to setup the Silent Chair Exhibit in the sanctuary. There were eight chairs randomly chosen that were decorated and reserved for victims of domestic violence. Domestic violence should be a chapter in a person's story, but unfortunately for these men, women, and children, their story ended tragically. Through this impactful exhibit, UYM gave a voice to these true and horrific stories. Additionally, a small table was decorated in the foyer of the church that paid a tribute to a Myrtle Beach Police Officer who was killed in the line of duty responding to a domestic violence call. The Founder and CEO of UYM, Jennifer Foxworthy, stated "This exhibit is to shed light on the horrible pandemic of intimate partner violence. The Silent Chair Exhibit serves as a visual reminder of the impact this nightmare has on the loved ones left behind to mourn the loss as well as the community. It's imperative for people to understand what domestic violence is and what resources are available." #NoMoreLivesLost
On October 24th, UYM hosted the 2nd Annual Unstoppable You H.E.A.R.T. Virtual Panel Discussion. The panel included domestic violence survivors and subject matter experts representing an array of support and resources. #DomesticViolenceAwarenessMonth
On October 25th, UYM was amongst several ministries and missionaries that were highlighted and supported by Faith Bible Church (Mechanicsville, MD). This was a great opportunity for the congregation to come alongside to support our organizations. #MakingaDifference
Last but certainly not least, Jennifer, who is a regular contributor for the Roaring Wind Tribune, was blessed to write an article for the whole front cover for the October issue. In addition, Jennifer submitted an article concerning domestic violence that was on page 3. The Roaring Wind Tribune is a Christian newspaper based out of southern Maryland.
