Kaye Lewis is originally from Oklahoma, and moved to Waco in 2012 to be closer to family. She leads a Lifegroup in the Women’s Ministry and has been serving with STARS Book Clubs for the past six years.


Why did you decide to volunteer with STARS?

I have always loved reading. I once read that if you learn to love reading, you will never be lonely, and I have found that to be true in my own life. When I heard what was happening in the kids at Provident Heights through STARS, I knew I wanted to be a part.

What is your favorite part about serving?

I enjoy being a Book Club Mentor because I know these kids will be successful in life if they learn to read. It is such a joy getting to know them, sharing fun stories with them and seeing them use their imagination as they improve in their reading.

Do you have a testimony to share from your time serving?

I have been serving since 2013, and it is always great to develop relationships that extend beyond our 30-minutes a week. I love seeing the kids while I am out and about in Waco. I also still keep up with a girl who is now 15 and used to be in one of my groups.

Is there anything else you would like to share?

Thirty minutes once or twice a week is time well spent with these kids, I promise!
