Allies Change Lives
Step uP Silverdale Ally: Sharon
Why am I volunteering as an ally for the Step uP Silverdale Work Life participants? I felt this was where God wanted me. I want the women there to know how important they are to me and in God’s eyes. I want them to feel my love and the love of our Heavenly Father.
Over the years, I’ve served in short-term missions – building churches and homes. I’ve been a church class leader and teacher. Also involved in Tres Dias and Cleansing Stream ministries, I have taken a small group to Albania to hold a Ladies Conference.
Celebrating 61 years of marriage with my sweetheart and best friend, I’ve watched our family grow to some 30 loved ones. My prayer is that each one will know Christ and make Heaven their final home.
Step uP Silverdale Ally: Kathryn
Hi! I am so excited to be a part of Step Up Chattanooga! I own a medium-sized service business that I started ten years ago as a high schooler. It has since grown to serve 5 cities in two different states.
With the career path that I took, I didn’t see going to school as being that helpful. So I found mentors, studied on my own and managed to learn a lot along the way.
I love teaching the students in the Step Up Silverdale Work Life Classes what bosses are looking for on applications, interviews, and on the job. My goal is to leave them inspired to find a job they feel empowered doing. One for which they have the skills and communication tools to thrive, and which they, as citizens, can work their way up to careers that add value to their community.
