Happy Birthday, KADIJAH

Today is Kadijah's birthday. She is the wife of James, mother of Lucy & Roo, and guardian of Ann Marie. They all live at St. Laurence House and care for those around them. Like James, Kadijah is a gift from God to Nazareth House. Her strength and faithfulness has been a driving force in tending to the tremendous daily stress and strain of meeting the needs around them. This being done when many times James and Kadijah are struggling to make ends meet for their own household. Kadijah and James are an inseparable team and we appreciate and love them very very much.

In the above photo, Kadijah is wearing a tank top from our online store. Each purchase kicks back a bit of money to Nazareth House and wearing it gets the word out about us.
