Candice graduated from Muskogee High School in 1987. She has worked in finance and collections for over 30 years. She wanted a big family and to help kids. In 1998 attending church, a church member that worked for DHS offered a workshop encouraging the church to open their homes to foster care. Candice was a therapeutic foster mom from 1998-2009, raising three foster girls from the time they were 13 and 14 to adulthood. She did all this while raising five of her own biological children.
With all of her children grown, Candice started to feel the calling to get involved again with helping young girls. After numerous prayers for wisdom, guidance, and to find purpose she saw a post that Flourish Homes needed a resident advisor staff. Immediately, she knew that was God’s plan and purpose for her life: to love and give guidance to these young ladies trying to find their purpose and way in this world.
Candice attends Church on the Move and enjoys kayaking, hiking, camping, vintage markets, and playing with her grandchildren.
Elisha graduated from Eastern College of Health Vocations in 2009, where she specialized as a Medical Assistant. In 1999, her oldest brother had a massive heart attack and passed away. I was 16 at the time and it impacted my life in a major way. I lost my way for a while. As I got into my late 20’s I had a burden for the younger generation of women. I had a desire to help them see their value and worth, to know they are capable of more than they could imagine. I wanted to help them know Jesus and His love and will for their lives in a new way. To help them see they can overcome their past and any obstacles they may be facing. To help them see they have people that truly love them and are in their corner. She became a resident advisor in 2022 to be in Blossom’s corner!
She attends church at Church on the Move in Broken Arrow. In her free time Elisha enjoys the farmer’s market, being outside, traveling, and hanging out with friends and family.
