Last weekend I helped out with one of my church’s outreaches, called Clean Slate. We helped a woman named Ruby, who lost her husband this past year, has a handicapped daughter, and has struggled with health issues this past year, too.

Her house was a wreck. But over 200 of us completely reorganized, gutted, and redid her house, Extreme Home Makeover style.

It’s a lot of work, but I’m so glad that we were able to help her, and bring her a clean slate.
