"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.

For NYC Homeless, Soccer a Field of Dreams

It's a small step from the streets of New York to the bright lights of the soccer field, the New York Times finds in a look at Street Soccer USA, a nonprofit that's giving homeless men the chance to pull themselves up by their cleat-straps. The 16-city network turns shelter residents, suffering from a lack of exercise and a surplus of despair, into confident teammates in matching red jerseys networking with the white-collar corporate teams they're playing—and making strides toward integrating back into society.

Founder Lawrence Cann, himself a college soccer standout, lays down ground rules when recruiting his ragtag players: no getting drunk or high before practice, call out the name of your receiver, and keep the coach up to date about how you're doing. It's not “a return to being normal, but it makes me feel like myself again,” says one player. “Two weeks ago, that was the first time that I forgot. I forgot where I was and what was going on.” So far, one player has gone home to his family, and another scored a job and apartment.
