Good News Tuesday: Prepare to Be Inspired


“If you do something wrong to my animals, I will catch you.”  ___Vimbai Kumire

A female anti-poaching unit protects elephants in Zimbabwe.  Many of these women are single mothers or survivors of abuse. My heart cheers with hope for them, for their courage and dedication. In this video, you can see how important their work is to them.

Fighting the monster of addiction also takes courage. It’s harder than most people realize. Crystal Champ gave her baby to a hero, but Crystal is a hero, too.  In this video, she’s been sober six months.


Good news is happening all over the world.

The world needs to see it.

  1. Two quite different inspirational stories

  2. Thank you so much – inspiration first thing in the morning is a wonderful thing :O) x

  3. Heart warming stories and here’s to baby Hope, her heart family and Crystal’s healing through flowing love to animals. ❤ I lived in Zimbabwe through my teenage years and the story of the women standing up against poaching and standing for themselves and their families…touched me deeply. ❤ Thanks JoAnna. xXx

  4. Beautiful empowering stories of tremendous courage from two totally different backgrounds. Both touched my heart JoAnna, The first one shows the true grit and determination these African women have had to endure, Their new focus on protecting the elephants has given them a new found courage and self confidence that their lives previous to enrolling on the project had taken away from them.. They now have purpose and control over their own lives and feel worthy . A great share..

    I hope Crystal’s healing continues and her daughter Hope can also one day grow up being so proud of the choices her mother made. Not an easy journey to make, but Crystal looks 100% better and its so so good to know that officer who found her when she was pregnant gave the much needed help she obviously needed.. He too is one in a million..

    So good to catch your Good News JoAnna, and enjoy your ‘Free’ time to just BE.. I know I have, and will continue to pace myself ..

    Love and Blessings and take care of you ❤ Hugs xx
