after much ado, it feels as if we’re standing in front of a full-length mirror, checking out how we look in  our new digs …

[a huge thank-you to Taylor McRae, whose mad design skills have us feeling as if we’re wearing skinny jeans … ahem.]

we’re hoping you’ll sit a spell with your coffee and  explore our new space.


all of the old posts are here (check the Categories tab on the sidebar to find your favorites), and there are  new features as well.  here are some of our favorites:

  • a page devoted to  making referrals – which are a key element to the success of our ministry.  we’ll be meeting with Nashville-area hospitals this week to begin partnerships that will put us in touch with hurting families.  please pray that God will use us with each referral to bring his light into the dark days of grief.
  • a section of the new site devoted entirely to  telling the stories of the amazing families that Banebow has been able to minister to.  this, without question, is  the heartbeat of our ministry.  keep your eyes peeled this week for a new post about a beautiful boy and his brave parents.
  • an online store – opening its doors soon – where you’ll find the Banebow tees that so many of you have emailed about.  there are also a few new surprises that will be on sale … so that the whole family can wear their Banebow gear, with all proceeds benefitting the work of the ministry.


in all of this, we are grateful to  a God who has provided at every step in the process of building this non-profit.

though our site has a new look, our focus remains: to be used by God in whatever way He wills to bring help to hurting people. please continue to pray for our ministry … and, if you feel led to do so, tell others about the work that we’re doing.


enough chit-chat … go exploring!

and let us know what you think …
