I watched Laurie Vanderpool hold a severely disabled young boy in her arms and proclaim that one day he would run and jump and turn somersaults.

She had me at the way she smothered him with hugs and kisses. Her love was stunningly holy and absolute.

I wanted to change my life at that exact moment.

Have you ever thought about quitting your job and rebooting your life?

People Do Amazing Things: Mandy Rapson

Let me introduce you to an amazing friend. Her name is Mandy Rapson. You will discover that she is fearless, courageous, selfless, and passionate in her love for others and for Christ.

I first met Mandy seven years ago when I began developing a service learning experience for Belmont University students in South Africa. Over the years she has become a friend to our family, a mentor to my daughter, and an encourager to students.

Moreover, she has built a life where she invests herself in others. I want you to meet her and to learn about the cool things she does and the really amazing thing she did lately.

Friends, let me introduce Mandy Rapson to you. She is the kind of person that gives me hope.
