Editor’s Note: We’ve loved sharing these Good News stories the past few weeks with you, and today, we’re thrilled to be sharing a story a little closer to home. We hope you enjoy and feel as uplifted by it as the rest of us have as we’ve watched this story unfold.
Emily Freeman, a co-founder of Multiply Goodness, is passionate in the cause of sharing Christ-like love. A story inspired by such love has recently been fostered in her home.
On August 26, 2011, Garett Bolles’ life was changed forever. After a series of mistakes he found himself on the side of the road, feeling homeless and hopeless at 18 years old. That was when Emily’s husband, Greg, spotted him.
This is a story about family, love, and second chances. A local TV station in Utah recently did a feature story about Garett’s transformative road to becoming one of the top-recruited junior college football players in the nation.

And if you’d like to read a bit more about Garett and his journey to change his life by turning it to God, we think you’ll love this post that Emily wrote last month.
Garett and the Freemans remind us that love is the key that unlocks potential. As we extend that love to those who cross our paths, their own path can be changed forever.
