"God Bless the Dream, the Dreamer and the Result." 

FaithWalk Clothing by William Renae

In today's world and in times past collaboration and partnering has been an instrumental strategy.  Partnering helps us to grow, learn, change and exchange ideas.  Even the Bible endorses partnering based on the scripture that says, "Where two or three are gathered, I am there."

I want to introduce to you a mother/son partnership, which currently launched a new clothing line.  The clothing line is called FaithWalk. The new line is created to encourage others to save themselves and to take control of their own destiny.

Renae Parker Benenson is a Mom, certified Chaplin (spiritual listener and encourager), writer and co-founder of FaithWalk.  William Marshall Parker II is a Son, entrepreneur, writer and co-founder of FaithWalk.  Together they compliment each other and have found support for their individual and collective growth and development.

They started FaithWalk because they get it.  They have figured out that their life is to get better spiritually, emotionally, financially, intellectually and physically it will be because they have prayed to God and believe that the Creator will equip them for the journey and fill them with unfathomable power to be and to do more than they can ever imagine.

As Economy Dives, Street Papers Thrive

Street papers—newspapers created and sold by the homeless—are enjoying a small boom, even as mainstream papers feel the brunt of the economic crisis. It’s not just because of growing interest in these local papers’ quirky coverage, the New York Times reports. As the ranks of the down-and-out swell, more and more people are showing up to sell the papers, which can return a 75-cent profit per copy.

Managers of these papers say they’re now getting vendors who have high school, even college diplomas, and the combination of more salesmen and “higher quality” vendors have boosted sales: Portland's Street Roots jumped from selling 11,000 to 16,000 papers within a few months. But the recession has hit some papers in other ways; Washington, DC's Street Sense has seen the donations that fund its operation drop 25% in the last year.
