My Story

Welcome friend! I’m Noel Yeatts and I describe myself as an everyday wife and mother … trying to change the world.

Whether I’m sitting at my son’s baseball game, or walking the dusty roads of Africa, my heartbeat is the same. It beats for rescue, restoration … hope.

I have spent my life traveling the world and seeing firsthand the stories of extreme poverty, disease and hunger. But, after more than 20 years in humanitarian work, I have learned that there are no easy answers or solutions and that “saving the world” is not my calling. Instead, I believe my calling is to restore hope to a hurting world … whenever and wherever I can.

I serve as the vice president of World Help, a faith-based humanitarian organization that serves the physical and spiritual needs of people in impoverished communities around the world.

I am the coauthor of two books (Children of Hope and causelife: water equals life) and debuted my new book ‘Awake: Doing a World of Good One Person at a Time’ in June 2012. As a speaker, I enjoy sharing at events across the nation at universities, churches and conferences.
