As many women do, Amy Shugart wears a lot of hats in this life. She is a working mother to three busy teenagers: Sydney, Seth, and Sam. She considers it a wonderful blessing to have been able to stay at home with them until recently. Amy says, "I have had to be more selective with my volunteering and what I devote my time to since returning to work. We are very active members in our church, Cedar Bayou Grace, and I feel that my spiritual gift from God is one of service. I love to be involved helping others and sharing God’s love. Serving on the board for Emma’s Hugs is one of the volunteer hats that I cherish the most. From the moment that God planted the seed of this wonderful organization, it has been about one simple gesture and how far that gesture can spread love and hope. Sweet Emma, Emma’s Hugs, and its founders are dear to my heart, and I am honored to serve on this board."
