NORMAN — Mothers Without Borders founder Kathy Headlee-Miner is delivering a public devotional 7 p.m. Jan. 26 at the Norman Stake Center of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1506 W. Imhoff Road in Norman. The event is free and open to the public.

Headlee-Miner’s remarks, titled, “The Worth of a Soul,” center around God's love for each of his children, how he uses us as instruments in his hands and how each of us has an important role to play in sharing the love and light of Jesus Christ in our daily lives.

"It is through our simple, daily interactions with others that we have opportunity to bring light and remembrance of who we are and whose we are,” Headlee-Miner said. “Join us to learn how you can be an instrument of change and light, simply by discovering and being the best version of you."

Headlee-Miner’s husband, Phillip, will also speak at the devotional. Phillip will share how portraying Jesus Christ for Christian artist Liz Lemon Swindle’s painting, set in an African orphanage, led him on a spiritual journey to Christ. The experience ultimately led to his conversion to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Mothers Without Borders is a nonprofit organization reaching out to children in need in Zambia to address the needs of orphaned and abandoned children in a holistic manner. The organization supports efforts to provide safe shelter, food and clean water, education and access to caring adults.

Headlee-Miner has been involved with relief and community service work since 1989 and founded Mothers Without Borders in 2000. She has organized and implemented community development projects and volunteer expeditions to Romania, Mexico, India, Indonesia, Bolivia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. She and her husband Phillip spend several months a year living in Africa where they oversee a variety of projects from the nonprofit’s headquarters in Lusaka, Zambia. Kathy is the mother of seven children and has five grandchildren.
