To celebrate this Down syndrome man's birthday, Tim Harris and his family hold an annual hug-a-thon. They host this hug-a-thon to raise money for Firefighters Random Acts, non-profit run by Albuquerque firefighters. Tim thanks everyone for their contribution and always has kind words for everyone.
Tim's hugs are always free but he accepts donations for hugs if someone offers. This year he has a goal of giving 2,000 hugs and raising $10,000 for charity. Tim gives people hugs out of the goodness of his heart and it works perfectly. His hugs are acts of kindness used to help charities. He wants to hang out with everyone and let them know that he loves every all of them.
It is hard for people who have Down syndrome to perform at the same level as others. Those with Down syndrome people may work at a slower pace, but that doesn't make them any less valuable. Tim is a great inspiration to everyone he meets! more >>
Chris suffered from constant burning in the face due to a very rare disease. It was a sensitivity to light. Most people are unable to deal with it, and that's why it is labeled the "suicide disease." But Chris was healed by a very special prayer and her story is incredible!
Every day this woman would wake up and have a sensitive feeling toward many things including the light. This had become very painful and she knew she had to make a change or find something to heal her. At first, Chris did not believe in the power of prayer could heal anyone with a disease like this, including herself.
A woman at her church believed that if she prayed and allowed others to pray for her there would be a drastic change to her life. With one simple touch, the agony that Chris felt for 15 years disappeared! more >>
Staff Sergeant Todd King was almost taken from us when a suicide bomb went off during a tour. But God had other plans for this courageous man and the love of his life, Laci.
It's one thing to be away during a tour and to have a woman who loves you back at home. It becomes very hard to keep things together when you are not around as much as you could be. But, Laci makes a GREAT point about commitment. Just because he was hit by a suicide bomb and his life is different, it shouldn't change the love she has. Laci didn't change the love she had for Todd even after he was hit with a bomb that put him in critical condition.

JERUSALEM — In a clarion call to a global gathering of Spirit-filled believers in Jerusalem Friday, Jentezen Franklin, senior pastor of the multi-campus Free Chapel Church, urged the anointed throng to start preaching "the truth about being filled with the Holy Spirit" and speaking in tongues to their families or risk losing a generation.
Franklin explained that speaking in tongues is the language of the Holy Spirit that was first shared with the church in the Upper Room in the book of Acts in the Bible, now known as the day of Pentecost.
That gift of the Holy Spirit, he said, has made its way down through generations of Spirit-filled believers, like those in his own family. He warned, however, that if those who have had the experience don't continue to share the gift beginning with their families, it will eventually die a slow death. more >>
Ronnie Brower weighted in at 675 pounds two years ago. Doctors had given him a grim diagnosis and he knew he needed to make a change. Thanks to a two good friends, Joe Bufano and Gina D'Addario, he was able to conquer all the negativity in his life and do something incredible.
D'Addario connected Brower with Nick Murphy and Jill Rupert, who are both trainers with Mission Fitness. This man did everything he could to get back in shape, and in the end it paid of big time. He gave up poor eating and drinking habits and started eating right and working out daily. His goal was to reach 250 pounds and his friends believed in him every step of the way. His friend Joe knew that he loved Taylor Swift because he listened to her so often during his journey, so he treated him to the upcoming June 3 show.
