“Obedience and love for God is why I do what I do. I love being part of God’s plan to redeem lives. God has redeemed my life.”

“I think it keeps my mind fresh to wake up and be able to say I have something that’s small that the Lord can use, and that I enjoy thoroughly.  If you’re going to serve the Lord, you might as well enjoy it, right?”

“Having a heart to help disciple others and want to grow them in a Christ-centered environment is way more fulfilling coming to work every day − having a purpose, rather than just being profitable and making a paycheck.”

“A lot of Spokane businesses, the women and men here, want to give back. They just need to know how. And I think this is a great way. … And it’s easy. UGM did all the upfront work.”

“If somebody is committed to changing their pathway in life, we will support them to get there as long as they’re going to work hard... It’s like giving back to ourselves in a way. Helping people become part of society and play a role that’s productive – a richer, better community for everyone.”
