I can't BELIEVE what came in the mail for me on Friday...

Uncle Sam, aka the IRS, sent papers congratulating me that the non-profit my friends and I started is officially tax-exempt 501(c)3 status! I nearly fainted! If some may recall, in November I was scurrying to send in further information for the IRS to process in order for achieve 501(c)3 status. Well, I got it in on time but never heard a word until the first of January when my contact there left a message on my answering machine at home. Well, if some may recall, I was a little busy the beginning of January, so later that month, after Noah was in heaven and I was back at home, I called and left a message stating that I had been busy with my son, that if they had further questions to please contact me, etc. I never heard from the IRS again...until the letter came in the mail on Friday, September 7, 2007. That was 2 years, 3 months and 2 days from the day they originally approved us as a non-profit.

So, in the next couple of months, we will be praying about where the Lord desires to lead us as a group. He's shown us a few things this summer that are exciting and will hopefully make both spiritual and physical impacts on people's lives here in the States and around the world. After a lot of prayer and brainstorming sessions, I'll post more here if anyone is interested...

FYI: It's called Bevy, Inc. A 'bevy' is a group of girls, which is what we are, and our desire is to use our gifts and resources for God's glory to encourage women in need and their families.


  1. Congratulations, Adrienne! What an exciting development. I wish you all the best in your venure...I have no doubt your little "bevy" will have huge successes for the Lord!
