My Journey with PICC




A few short years ago, I met Rochelle Indo on Facebook. Rochelle is a wonderful Christian woman with a vision and fire in her soul.

Our relationship grew, because we were working for the same things. She was channeling her energy behind presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson and so was I. Her group started then, and later transformed into PICC. As a Christian, I was instantly drawn to what she was doing.

Almost two years ago, Rochelle asked me to write an article for PICC. I have always loved to write, but hadn’t had much opportunity to do so. Not long after my first article published, she asked me to start a column on PICC, and The Front Porch was born.

Rochelle has always encouraged me, and my ability as a writer has definitely grown. I believe in encouraging, inspiring and educating those who we reach.

PICC is growing by leaps and bounds. We are now in Stage 4 – “Growing the Distance”. We are reaching out to help and encourage those around us. PICC recently partnered with PODI and I feel this partnership will help PODI significantly. We are already seeing more needs met.  This is just a beginning.

Rochelle and I have had quite a journey, and we still have miles to go. She is closer than a sister and we work very well together. We are stepping out, faith believing. As Rochelle often says, “God will make a way!”

I hope you enjoyed reading this article.  Please check out my other articles on The Front Porch. Thanks!

About Gail Pinder

I was born in New Jersey and raised in a small town in Pennsylvania. I have lived in many places – Texas, Arkansas, Delaware and finally Michigan. Several years ago, I met a wonderful man – a Vietnam Navy vet who shares my love of God and Country! We have been happily married for more than 15 years. I have two children of my own and Emery has two children. We have four wonderful grandchildren. Emery and I both have Multiple Sclerosis. He is now in a powerchair and I am his caregiver. Life is somewhat challenging, but we do the best we can. We tell everyone that “We have MS, but it doesn’t have us!” I have always loved to write and my dream was to becoming a “writer”. PICC gave me a window to my dream and an opportunity to share my thoughts with others. Our faith is strong and I don’t know where we would be without it. We are determined to spread a little sunshine in a darkened world. I've been married to my wonderful husband for 14 years. I have two children of my own and Emery has two children. We have four grandchildren. My husband and I both have MS and I am his caregiver. We tell everyone that "we have MS but it doesn't have us!"
