Welcome to #WonderfulWednesday No. 17
Todays utterly divine human being and I first met at bible college and its probably fair to say that we were/are polar opposite to each other but boy do I love this human!
So let me introduce them to you by sharing 10 things that totally captivate me about them:
1) They are super chilled
2) They demonstrate ridiculous amounts of love for others
3) They are sensitive to the needs of others
4) They are always positive
5) They are passionate about equipping and enabling children and young people
6) They have no idea how beautiful a human being they are
7) They stand with people in solidarity not charity
8) They are full of grace
9) They are off the scale servant hearted
10) They share joy with the world
Who is this #WonderfulWednesday human you may ask ...
Luke has a degree in Applied Theology and is a JNC qualified youth worker. We first met at Moorlands when we both appeared in the Placement Based class of 2006 - 2009.
Luke and I became instant siblings and for 3 years I regularly tortured him by pushing his boundaries. Once I sacrificially 'helped him out' by getting him into a head lock, providing him the chance to practice his Break Away Training. Wasn't he blessed!
Our house loves Luke and is gutted life is so busy we don't get to see enough of him. He is a real gem of a human.
Luke has recently joined Home for Good after ten years of working with children, young people and fostering through Bath YFC. He and his wife Claire are foster carers and he is passionate about giving hope to vulnerable children and young people. He is a governor at his local junior school and on the steering group of Family Matters, which trains and supports volunteers to come alongside families. He walks what he talks this one.
You cant follow Luke on any social media as thats not his thing but you can follow Home For Good on Twitter here and if you are in the South West then Luke will be the Home For Good staff member for you!
Luke Brightwell is a legend. Pure and simple.
