”Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.”
John F. Kennedy
As I developed a clearer sense of the gifted person whose words and wisdom will be shared in this new Series, Toni Jackson, the famous words of Pres. Kennedy (above) and a well-known Bible scripture came to mind. The scripture:
- The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (James 5:16b).
As a Christian prays, to connect with God, a cheerful volunteer donates their time to connect with their community. Jackson is a proud Christian woman who has generously volunteered throughout her life – to support a wide range of organizations and community causes.
A Housing Specialist for the City of High Point (NC), she has volunteered countless hours – and managed volunteers too. However, if you look only at Jackson’s paid employment, you’re missing out on a lot of what has allowed the married mother of two to make her mark.
- During her life she’s volunteered in the areas of housing, financial capability, developmental disabilities advocacy, & public ministry.
A Series on Your Outcomes Well featuring Toni Jackson begins today.
In the biography at the bottom of this Series-launching post, her career, volunteer work, awards, and family are described.
