One Bed at a Time, Luke Mickelson Wants Kids off the Floor, Top 10 CNN Heroes

“If you want true joy, you’ve got to stop looking at yourself,” says Luke Mickelson.
Mickelson knew something was missing in his life. It was time to get off the sofa and figure it out.
Back in 2012, it came to the attention of Mickelson through his Church, that some kids in the community were sleeping on the floor. He felt compelled to help the family out. Instead of buying a bed for the kids, he decided to take on the project of making the bed. So Mickelson and his own family, and church volunteers built the bed from lumber he picked up at the local store, and donated the bunk bed to the family.
“This little girl had a nest of clothes, it looked like a little bird’s nest. And that’s what she slept on, that’s what her bed was,” Mickelson said. “When we delivered the bed, she hugged it and just couldn’t let go.”
“That first project, we built 11 bunk beds in my garage,” he said. “The next year, we did 15. Then it doubled every year. In 2017, we built 612 bunk beds.” That feeling of changing a life, of giving back – changed everything. That is in fact what was missing.
The story of ‘Sleep in Heavenly Peace’ will inspire you, and move you to action in your own life.

The story continues on the Brink of Greatness Podcast…

The Next Leap Forward

He was asked in a CNN interview how he was making ends meet; since he had quit his job and was not taking salary from the not-for-profit.
“I quit my job of 18 years because I wanted to do this full-time, or at least as much as I possibly could, because I knew the need was big. It just came to a point where I could see that my passion really is helping these kids. It was gratifying to see my kids and my family be involved with it and help them learn the value of service, but also seeing everybody else feel and see that joy from helping kids get off the floor. It’s contagious,” said Mickelson. “I was very fortunate to have another company offer me a job. Granted, I took a huge pay cut, but it helps me get by and helps me do what I need to do with Sleep in Heavenly Peace. They’re very understanding of what my passion is.”
“I found that the need I have isn’t financial,” he said. “The need I have is seeing the joy on kidas’ faces, knowing that I can make a difference.”

Howdy Doody Time in Bidenville

Howdy Doody Time in Bidenville

This past week was just another seven days of “Howdy Doody Time” in the Bidenville Whitehouse. But, unfortunately, truth-telling is forever elusive in the clown & puppet show that is today’s Whitehouse. We’ve come to expect the Biden administration to obfuscate, contradict, misinform, dis-inform, and fabricate bizarre denials…

Good Parents Bequeath Peace and Joy to Their Children

Everything children need to know about life is no longer taught in kindergarten. A substitute for wholesome parents does not exist; you are all that your child needs.

Government Getting Between Mama Bear and Her Cubs

Government Getting Between Mama Bear and Her Cubs

We’re told we must do this “for the children!” That would explain why so many people from presidents, mayors, and even educators seem out to get our children. From pushing experimental COVID vaccinations to public school indoctrination, it appears that the agenda is to train our children to be good little subjects, to do what they’re told…

Rise Against Tyranny turns to Rumble In Boston 

The event was set up to offer support to police, firefighters, and nurses who have lost their jobs for not taking the COVID19 vaccine. Colonel Julie Hall said as soon as the organizers started setting up, ANTIFA members descended upon the area with taunts and jeers. While she has served in the military for 30 years, even Hall was taken aback by the radical…

A Globalist Reckoning

A Globalist Reckoning

Biden, the career yes-man politician, heavily embedded with the Globalists, was the perfect candidate to pick up the Obama legacy and move it forward. The comparison of Andrew Dice Clay and the Democrat Party is an interesting analysis of how the Marxist movement in the Democrat Party may have pushed too far this time. And then there’s China. China is the wildcard…

The Bureaucrats Who Cried Wolf, And Never Stopped

It’s about time the American people realize that those in Washington, D.C., our statehouses, city halls, media, and business have been crying wolf for years. Sure, we can focus on COVID-19, but how many of you remember “The New Ice Age” and “Overpopulation” scares of the 1970s? How many times were we told that the world would end from…

A Long Train of Abuses and Usurpations

A Long Train of Abuses and Usurpations

It seems too many Americans have traded their essential liberties for the empty and vapid promise of safety and security. Until the American people stop bending the knee to a government they created, they will continue to be their slaves. And for those of us who refuse to bend the knee, we need to seek ways of living for ourselves as the bullies…

What the Elections Told Us and Border Betrayal

Chaos on the border with almost 3.5 million illegals entering America in 2021. The long-term consequences, costs, and human toll are astounding. The elections are over, and conservatives won big.

Covid and Your Cells Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Vincent Giampapa

Do you give any weight to the theory that the spike protein of the virus contains a prion-like domain? Is there any way to detox at a cellular level after receiving the Covid19 vaccine? In theory, would taking an anti-viral prior to the covid vaccine help limit the damage the spike protein might do my the veins/heart? Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Vincent Giampapa join us in a unique setting on The Voice of a Nation…
