FHGHTM is a non-profit, 501 (c)(3) corporation formed by Christians who were concerned about climate change, pollution, skyrocketing costs to protect drinking water reservoirs and manage landfills, deforestation, the erosion of topsoil and continued reliance on non-renewable energy sources.
Every good gift comes from above. God entrusted us to care for the earth. An important way of showing our love and reverence for God is to cherish and protect His precious creation. We intend to reflect the light of Jesus Christ in all of our efforts to promote a sustainable lifestyle.
Who We Are
Laura Richardson-Harris, Director, President and Founder
I am an attorney in north Texas who became a certified Master Composter in an effort to learn to live a fuller life with less impact on the earth. In the past couple of years, I have felt a stirring in my heart to start a non-profit organization centered on environmental concerns, but I did not have a clear vision of its structure and how it would tie into the way I would fulfill His Great Commission.
In the fall of 2008, our city hosted its annual “renewable energy” fair. While I was at one of the booths asking a question, a gentleman approached the same booth and asked what steps should he take to find a company to install solar panels on the roof of his home. I could tell by his demeanor and the tone of his voice that he was utterly frustrated. Since then, I have had a passion to start this ministry to help fill the void of information on how people can begin to make sustainable living a tangible part of their lives.
I hope that it will bless many other people far beyond how it has blessed me.

Andrea M. White, Director and Vice President
I work in a group home for disabled adults who moved to central Maryland because of the beautiful, natural landscape still untouched by development. Looking at nature as a whole, I stand in awe of God's amazing power and this self-sustaining system that He created, where we always have everything we would need to live.
It is my desire to help preserve God's creation out of respect and reverence and for my children's children to enjoy.
Paula J. Richardson, Director and Secretary
I am a single mom who wants to remain obedient to God. It is important to me to leave the earth in better condition then when we found it.
