My View for the Month: This big painting packs a lot of punch! Today, (July 13, 2021) I spent a lot of time looking at and studying the various stations and I decided to share my thoughts with you. (1) The first thing I see is young people from all nations, physical features and backgrounds, looking forward to both the hopes and uncertainties of the FUTURE. (2) Milestones leading to a brighter FUTURE. (3) A mother and father balancing working life with family life planning ahead for their childrens FUTURE. (4) The FUTURE is now--growing old together. As I packed up and headed for home, I thought: "This could be my story." I thought about the help, hope, love and faith that guided me throughout these years. It is my prayer the Evelyn K. Davis Center for Working Families will continue to provide positive guidance for people they now serve and for many FUTURE generations.
"For I know the plans I have for you,"declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (NIV) (Jeremiah 29:11)

The FUTURE is here! This beautiful new wall mural titled FUTURE, by artist Jill Wells, came to life July, 2021. This beautiful work of art was commissioned by the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines as a tribute to their former CEO, the late Barry Griswell. It also honors the life of the late Evelyn K. Davis. It occupies the entire north wall of the Evelyn K. Davis Center for Working Families at 1171 7th St, Des Moines, Iowa.
