Vision of Giving has partnered with Whitestone country Inn in a program to help pastors, Missionaries and are heroes returning home from the military.
Whitestone country Inn is located in Kingston Tennessee nestled on the banks of a lake. This amazing one-of-a-kind resort is a small piece of heaven. This for diamond facility was built by Paul and Jean Cowell over the past 21 years. Paul personally had a vision to help others by providing them a place to rest. Over the last 15 years they have provided pastors and missionaries a place of rest for free. Paul Cowell felt that Pastors and missionaries deal with so much in the daily life of their calling, the strains and burdens it can place on them and their family. These same burdens can personally be devastation sometimes. By offering them a private safe place of rest with beautiful surroundings will lift the weights and burdens from them as they rest and revitalize themselves. This will help them be the best as they go back to the field of work and perform all of the blessings they were called to do.
Vision of Giving along with Whitestone country inn & Board of Directors has come together to continue this mission to help others. This mission to help others is a perfect match with all of the efforts and goals of Vision of Giving. Vision of Giving is expanding beyond just pastors and missionaries to add are heroes from the military. Like pastors and missionaries our military men and women can return from their deployment with burdens from the locations they have been to and the experiences they have had. When our heroes are separated from their families this puts additional stress on relationships, when returning home months later it is sometimes difficult to reintegrate. We are proud to offer a place of rest relaxation and reconnection to our men and women returning from their military deployment. The local churches will nominate the hero’s that are eligible for this program.
We work with participating churches in our REST RELAX REFRESH program. Participating churches can nominate Military Heroes, Pastors or Missionaries for this program.


Vision of Giving has founded a new project called Food Recovery. This is a simple concept of rescuing food that would normally be thrown a way and put back to use for the benefit of those in need. First, we partner with the large food producer like Caterers, banquette halls and large kitchens. They create the amazing meals for the events or parties that are happening all over cities each day. At the end of the day all of the extra food that was not put out or touched is eligible to be recovered. Normally this would just be thrown a way. With their partnership with Vision of Giving we help rescue this food. The caterers just call us and with one phone call we go in to motion. Vision of Giving arranges to have the food picked up and matches it with a local shelter that can take the food to the benefit of the residents of the shelter. With no financial cost to the food providers or shelters.

Vision of Giving has created this amazing relationship for the benefit of the local community. If you would like Vision of Giving to bring Food Recovery to your home town, please call or email us. We want to hear from you.
