Mike and Paula are an amazing volunteer couple. One of Mike's hobbies is woodworking. Paula was an art teacher and loves all things artistic, especially painting. They came to Wooden It Be Lovely after reading about the ministry in the Springfield’s Own (SO) Magazine. Mike says that when he was reading the article, he immediately said to Paula, “they need us, I bet they are getting furniture that needs a bit of repair.  I can help them with my woodworking gifts and you can help them paint”. Mike and Paula have been volunteering once a week for several months and have added to the ministry in so many way. The Associates just love them and have learned so much from them. Paula says, “I have been blessed in my life and I believe giving back to the community is my way of glorifying God.”
