I am writing this at 2:55am on Saturday, April 18th. I should be sleeping, but I was the kind of excited that doesn't allow for sleep! This is Kali, by the way!
We are at the point in our start up process that is full of details:
Calling potential board members, filing paperwork, figuring out insurance, location, horses, website, logo, social medias, and the list goes on. (Though I'd say that about covers most of it!)
One thing I am learning, is that God is in every little detail.
Yesterday (Two yesterdays ago if we are admitting that friday is over and it is Saturday)
Anyway, yesterday a sweet friend of mine made a logo for the organization!! This was a huge blessing because we had been trying to figure out a logo for months now! And these logos she made are absolutely stunning! See for yourselves!
I mean look at those little oak leaves coming off of the tail, and the beauty and pride of the fiery one! I was over the moon. So. So cool.
Now if only God would send me someone to figure out all of this paperwork.... xD
Our next steps right now are Insurance, and Nonprofit Articles of Incorporation.
We will also be testing the program with a teen-tester this summer!
Our timeline, which we here, in writing, submit before God, is to file all the Nonprofit paperwork by this December, so that, if everything is approved, we will be a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit organization by January 2022! (And that's if everything takes the max amount of time to be processed!)
One big one is diligence with the paperwork. I am currently enrolled in 17 units, which are currently online, and it is hard to not view the paperwork as more homework. (Which can be hard for me to do, because it isn't technically "due")
So pray that I will be diligent and have endurance and persistence with these.
Pray that God would provide the horse that needs this program for the summer session testing that we are doing.
And finally, please pray that I would have wisdom in moving forward with school. I am not currently a therapist, I am a semester away from my Bachelors, and two years out from my masters if I get accepted right into a grad school. Pray that God would guide in choosing the right school to prepare me to lead others in this form of Therapy.
Thank you for Praying and hoping with us!
We love you all!
We updated our logo to match our new name: From Oaks of Righteousness to Oaks Restorative Ranch, so it shows a little more clearly what we are! Thank you Bailey for our amazing Logo!! We love it!
