Making A Difference One Candle at at Time

October 1 marked the launch of the month long candle sales for the Dayspring Family Resource Center.  David and I are so excited and humbled by the efforts of two young women from the Shelter Community Church of the Nazarene in Dayton, Ohio - Jennifer Hauk and Carrie Combs.  
If you would be interested in purchasing a candle, or two or three for gifts - they will be ready just before Christmas.  All profits for the month of October go directly into the fund for Dayspring.  To order, visit Jen's website -  and  click on the Dayspring Fundraiser or  email them at
 Here is Jennifer's letter to those partnering with them to sell candles during the month of October.


I wanted to take a moment and thank you for helping in making a difference in the lives of God's children.  The Dayspring mission touches my heart in a personal manner as I am a child of adoption.  I was blessed to have been adopted by a loving family at the age of 3 weeks.  The children of Dayspring are looking at different circumstances all together.  Being older, they are all too aware of what is occurring…losing the security of their familiar lives for multitudes of reasons.  Our hopes and prayers are that through the Dayspring Family Life Resource Center, these children will have their sense of hope and security restored by the love of Christ.

Starwick Candles emerged three years ago with two friends making candles for Christmas gifts that evolved into dreaming of having our own business.  Little did we know that with the Lord's leading, doors would be opened to this awesome opportunity to help support Dayspring.  It wasn't by chance that this kindled a passion within me for vulnerable children of the world.  I am excited to pursue this passion and with your help take action in making a difference in the Kingdom of Christ one candle at a time!

Thank you for your time and effort!

Thank you Jen, Carrie and the many that are helping you with this effort. May God prosper your vision.
