Deb Weakly | Foundation Team
Deb is married to her soulmate of 27 years, Randy. They have two grown children, Christie and Jack, and one precious, answer to prayer son-in-love named Alex.
If there was one thing Deb would love to share with you is that God is personal and loves you as you are. You don’t have to be perfect to be loved by our amazing God! Come as you are! His loving presence can be practically known and experienced. He is not a God who is far away, He is dearly near and easily found. He longs for you to come to Him!
Mari Jo | Foundation Team
Mari Jo, her husband Kim and family left everything that was familiar to them 13 years ago to move to beautiful Colorado.They live on a mini-farm which includes Snickers (a small Yorkie-Poo), a rooster named Cracker Jack, and 23 chickens who supply them with fresh eggs every day! It is their desire to allow all 7 of their children to live outside of the box, to pursue Jesus and follow their God-given desires for His greater purpose. Two are happily married to spouses who are greatly loved. They have a sweet little Grandson and a little Granddaughter will be added this summer!
Mari Jo had an encounter with the living God in 2000 and was freed from the bondage of legalism. She is passionate about Jesus and his love, and desires for everyone to know He is alive!
Brandi Carson | Foundation Team
Hey mamas, My name is Brandi Carson, and I am a homeschooling mama to 5 littles, first generation Christian, lover of food, friends, and dark chocolate, frugal thrift shopper who loves to find a good deal or a new project to work on and create. I am a mama that became a Christian after I started having babies.
My husband and I got married very young and started a family right away. Life has been a series of many trials that we have had to work through, like having a daughter with severe ADHD, moving to 4 different states in 2 years, health problems and just life in general. Through the years the Lord has shown me so much grace and love and has taught me so much about how to be humble, show love and grace.
Tara Davis | Foundation Team
Hi, I’m Tara Davis!I am so excited to be learning about Jesus right along with you! Though I have known Him for years, I realize every day how much I still have to learn about loving Him and living for Him.
I am the wife of a handsome man and the mama of three little boys. I live in a little house in the woods of Colorado with a few chickens and a lot of little-boy-craziness. I love you though I’ve never met you, and I’m praying for you often. My life, like yours, isn’t perfect, but we are both perfectly loved by our Savior!

Hi, my name is Kristall Willis. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Luke, for 10 years and we have 2 little kiddos, Colter and Carianna. I am blessed to be a stay-at-home-mom and my working background is in graphic design. I am from northern Virginia and our family moved out to Colorado in late 2013 to be close to family. I graduated from the University of Arizona in 2005 with a BFA degree in Visual Communications and my passion is for design. The Lord has called me to create designs for Him and therefore I am so grateful to be apart of the Help Club for Mom's ministry, where I can serve the Lord and connect with fellow moms all at the same time! My favorite verses are from Psalm 139:13-16.

Having lived in Colorado Springs most of my life, I enjoy hiking, camping, snowboarding, and other outdoor adventures with My family. When I am not busy homeschooling my four children, you might find me absorbed in a book or creating something lovely with my hands.
I am learning to continually practice the presence of God as He refines me for His perfect purposes. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11
