It's My Very Own Ministry


Every day children are removed from their homes due to parental drug abuse and neglect.  Many are left with nothing of their own. They lose their home, their parents, their clothes and their toys.  In the U.S. alone 687,000 children spent time in the foster care system in 2016.

Volunteers with It’s My Very Own seek to make the lives of displaced children a little brighter by providing Bags of Love to care for their immediate needs. Each bag of love includes a handmade quilt, stuffed animal, toys, books, and personal items.

Get involved.

Hello Everyone,

I love this ministry!  My involvement in It’s My Very Own (IMVO) started in 2006 when I heard a presentation by Barbara at a women’s retreat.  Since that time I am privileged to have had a part of four different chapters from Maine to Florida with Tennessee and Georgia in between!  Currently I am working with my local chapter in southeast coastal Georgia.

I love Barbara and Jack!  What an inspiration these two are to me.  Barbara with her irrepressible flow of ideas and Jack with his patient support and follow through make for a wonderful team.  God has worked through them in such amazing ways to build this ministry that is blessing children all over the US, Canada and Australia.  While I know that I can never “fill Barbara’s shoes” I am dedicated to continuing this ministry.  I am confident that God will continue to work through me and all of you as we carry on His work together.

I love all of you and look forward to interacting with you!  May God bless you and give you strength as you start or continue to bless the children in your community through It’s My Very Own.
