Post: Seeking Used Bike

Hi! I would like to buy a nice used bike for a long-legged girl who is turning six on March 7. (She does not actually know how to ride it yet, but has outgrown the little training bikes we have tried.) This needs to be a “real” bike that has some adjustability for growth. I am hoping to keep it under $100? Thanks so much. Email me with any leads.

Post: Seeking Housing for Ukrainian Refugee

I am a member of Christ Church Vienna; our kids Caleb and Libby Hoehner are at Restoration and suggested we reach out here. We are looking for housing situation for our Ukrainian refugee friend, Mykyta. We are looking for some kind of temporary housing for him. Would you or anyone you know have interest in hosting him temporarily (1-3 months beginning mid-March). We are looking for someone in Northern VA who might have an extra room/bathroom preferably with metro access. For background: Mykyta at the age of 17, fled the war in Ukraine in 2022 and lived with our family here in Vienna on refugee status with the Uniting for Ukraine program. He was then given the opportunity to study film in Orlando at Full Sail University. He has finished his program, and is looking to work in the film industry (NYC) eventually. He was recently granted a work permit, so he is aiming to work/save for a few months while he works out his next steps. There’s also the possibility that he could move directly to NYC directly to search for film work there and start some hourly work there instead of here in Virginia. We currently are in a situation with our family that we don’t have an extra room for him so we are trying to work out a solution. If you have any ideas for him, for us, or questions, can you let us know by email or at 703-283-6850?

Post: Seeking Housing 

My wife, Emily, and I attended Restoration for 4 years before moving to Boston for Emily to get her MBA. We will be back in the DC area this summer (June 1 – August 11) and are looking for housing. We are a married 27-year old couple who will both be working full-time and we would really prefer to be metro-accessible. If you, or anyone you know, needs a housesitter or would be able to host us for part of the summer we would be so grateful. Please contact me via email or at (757)748-6494 with any questions or info.

We can’t wait to be back at Resto for the summer!

Post: Introducing the Public Good Generation: A Unique Summer Program in Washington, D.C.

The organization that I work for, the Center for Christianity and Public Life, just announced a new high school program tailored for rising juniors and seniors who are passionate about exploring the intersection of their Christian faith and civic engagement. Set against the backdrop of Washington, DC, this transformative experience will run from July 7-12, 2024, offering an immersive context in which students can delve into meaningful conversations, gain critical knowledge, forge lasting connections, and discover how their faith can ground and motivate their public service.

Applications for Public Good Generation are now open, and we encourage motivated young individuals to seize this opportunity to deepen their understanding of how faith can inspire and inform civic responsibility, while also strengthening their faith and confidence in Jesus.

To ensure accessibility, we are proud to offer needs-based scholarships, making this experience available to a diverse group of students. Join us on this inspiring venture, where faith meets action, and together, we’ll cultivate the next generation of leaders committed to the public good.

If you have a student you think would be a great fit for this exciting new program, please encourage them to apply today for this exciting opportunity. Applications are due by April 1, 2024.

You can find the application here: Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with questions at

Post: Desk Available

Restoration’s Children’s Ministry has a pine desk we’re no longer using that’s available to anyone who would like it. It’s a secretary style and measures 42″ H x 35″ W x 17″ D, so it fits quite nicely in smaller spaces. If interested, please email me!
