TULSA, Okla. - Let your light shine.
You'll see and hear those words a lot at the Little Light House.
Sue Ellen Smith puts those words into practice, as she volunteers here every week.
"This is the best day of my week. It just makes you warm inside."
Sue Ellen, along with the teachers and other Little Light House volunteers, says the kids here seem to have an extra measure of love.
"Just being there for them and then seeing their faces when you walk in the door, and they're like, you're here. It's like yes I am and I'm so glad."
And this spring, those who work at The Little Light House, say they desperately need about 170 more faithful volunteers like Sue Ellen.
"I think the Lord has given our volunteers amazing talents and amazing hearts to come here and work with us," says Linda Steed, a physical therapist at the Little Light House.
Sue Ellen, too, says the Little Light House needs all the extra hands it can get in making a difference in the lives of the kids here.
"Especially if you're doing something like painting or glittering. It's absolutely fabulous to be there," said Sue Ellen.
It's her way, Sue Ellen says, of letting her light shine at the Little Light House.
