Dr. Beckwith’s Friday Inspiration For May 5th

Happy Friday, Team!


What a great day it is to be alive! I know it’s easy to fall into a rut, and perhaps reading my weekly emails can fall into the category of “it’s just another one of those…” but I hope not. I look forward to speaking to the entire organization at least once a week. Sharing something uplifting is my desire.


As I speak to you this week, I do with optimism, envisioning the future of LSSSC. Last month I celebrated my third year with this organization, and as I look back over the previous three years, I cannot help but be proud of what we have accomplished together. I remember my first week; we were locked down due to COVID. However, when I visited the office in Fullerton, I did so with a heart full of joy and my 100-day plan of things I would tackle within that timeframe. I remember praying that God would guide my decisions and actions. I recall reading everything I could find about LSSSC because I was excited.


There is a plethora of memories that takes me back to that first year. Today, I am excited about our vision, mission, and values. But my vision for LSSSC is more significant than ever. I believe that goals should be so huge that when we achieve them, everyone knows it must be God. That’s why our goal of creating Wellness Campuses throughout Southern California fuels me. Introducing the LSSSC magazine and now the children’s coloring book warms my heart, and watching new opportunities for LSSSC open to us, makes me giddy.


The Bible tells us in Proverbs 29:18, “Where there is no vision, the people perish….” The Message Bible reads, “If people can’t see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; But when they attend to what he reveals, they are most blessed.”


My life scripture is Jeremiah 29:11, “1 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 hope and a future.” I am convinced that LSSSC has always been God’s plan for you and me. I want our organization to be one where you feel valued, challenged, and able to realize your dreams. May His plans for you prosper, and may you have success.

Ambassadors are short-term volunteers who open doors for our organization in the community, introducing new people at our bi-monthly Fostering Community Care event.

  1. 1 – Attend at least one Fostering Community Care event during the calendar year
  2. 2 – Host or invite and bring 10-15 guests to one Fostering Community Care event within 3 months of your attending one yourself.

  4. 4 – Ambassadors will complete their commitment after bringing 10-15 persons within the 3 month time period. An Ambassador has the option to complete after one term, continue for another 3 month term or move into another role on the team.
