Volunteer of the Year - MaKayla White
MaKayla is celebrating a year of full-time volunteer service as an Administrative Assistant with Bridget's Cradles! She has truly been the backbone of the organization over the past year, helping us navigate so many organizational changes and obstacles.
After hearing a presentation about Bridget's Cradles at WSU by Ashley and Amanda in February 2020, MaKayla left her full-time job to serve with Bridget's Cradles in March 2020. When she started, little did she (or we) know what the year ahead would hold.
MaKayla has been a selfless servant and pillar of support in a year when we needed her the most. She was an answer to prayer and a beacon of light for our organization! MaKayla served behind the scenes, completing vital operational and administrative tasks, to keep us running smoothly through the pandemic. During her time with Bridget's Cradles, she also helped us navigate two leadership maternity leaves (Amanda and Ashley).
Without her help, we simply would not have been able to operate during the season of our operational leadership being in reduced schedules and volunteer capacities. MaKayla has been such a blessing to Bridget's Cradles and all the families we serve. Her tireless devotion to bereaved families is a true testament of her heart for the Lord.
More about MaKayla: MaKayla is married to her college sweetheart, Jacob, whom she met through campus ministry. Together they live in Wichita and have a cat named Bucky.
MaKayla has a Bachelor's degree in Social Work and has past experience working in Child Welfare. She had been praying for God to show her what she should do next after deciding to dedicate herself to serving the Lord full-time in ministry.
MaKayla then heard Ashley and Amanda share a presentation about Bridget's Cradles at Wichita State University's Chi Alpha ministry. It was here that she was moved to serve grieving families.
MaKayla enjoys playing board games, singing, and leading praise and worship. She and her husband also love writing worship music together in their free time.
