We first met Miranda and Maria in March when they came in to tell us that Miranda was going to designate all of her birthday gifts toward helping those without homes. Today they returned to give ESM a generous check and supplies. Thank you so much! They are pictured with Denise Sanders, ESM Development Director. ... See MoreSee Less

I have s and Xs tshirts. They have school logos on them from a highschool. Is that acceptable?
Because poverty and the experience of homelessness don’t take a snow day, we’ll be opening early today. Please pray for our guests without homes on this cold and snowy day. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 ... See MoreSee Less

A beautiful prayer from our friends at Highlands United Methodist Church, Denver!A powerful Prayer for Mother's Day, informed by women's experience in Scripture.
I want you to know I'm praying for you if you are like Tamar, struggling with infertility, or a miscarriage.
I want you to know that I'm praying for you if you are like Rachel, counting the women among your family and friends who year by year and month by month get pregnant, while you wait.
I want you to know I'm praying for you if you are like Naomi, and have known the bitter sting of a child's death.
I want you to know I am praying for you if you are like Joseph and Benjamin, and your Mom has died.
I want you to know that I am praying for you if your relationship with your Mom was marked by trauma, abuse, or abandonment, or she just couldn't parent you the way you needed.
I want you to know I am praying for you if you've been like Moses' mother and put a child up for adoption, trusting another family to love your child into adulthood.
I want you to know I am praying for you if you've been like Pharaoh's daughter, called to love children who are not yours by birth (and thus the mother who brought that child into your life, even if it is complicated).
I want you to know I am praying for you if you, like many, are watching (or have watched) your mother age, and disappear into the long goodbye of dementia.
I want you to know that I am praying for you if you, like Mary, are pregnant for the very first time and waiting breathlessly for the miracle of your first child.
I want you to know that I am praying for you if your children have turned away from you, painfully closing the door on relationship, leaving you holding your broken heart in your hands. And like Hagar, now you are mothering alone.
I want you to know that I am praying for you if motherhood is your greatest joy and toughest struggle all rolled into one.
I want you to know that I am praying for you if you are watching your child battle substance abuse, a public legal situation, mental illness, or another situation which you can merely watch unfold.
I want you to know that I am praying for you if you like so many women before you do not wish to be a mother, are not married, or in so many other ways do not fit into societal norms.
I want you to know that I am praying for you if you see yourself reflected in all, or none of these stories.
This mother's day, wherever and whoever you are, we walk with you. You are loved. You are seen. You are worthy.
And may you know the deep love without end of our big, wild, beautiful God who is the very best example of a parent that we know.

My grandmother, Louise Lowe, was one of the founders of this church!!! My Aunt Ruth, who wrote the book "The History of NorthWest Denver" went to this church her entire life. I have been there many times. The Highlands is a remarkable part of Denver and this beautiful church is a huge part of that!!! Thank you so much for sharing, ESM! Such a lovely prayer...
