Think of something new....

Hey sweet friends...

First of all HAPPY THANKSGIVING and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! Yep....I kick off my favorite season of all on Thursday and roll it all into one giant, happy, yummy time!!!

Currently, I'm at home with a house full of sick youngins and am completely sleep deprived. But, deep down inside....I like days like this. It's unexpected and truly a gift in a weird sort of way.


As we all get into the "season," I want to ask you to consider doing something different this year.

Would you consider sponsoring a child through Compassion International??

Or, you can sponsor a child short term if that appeals to your finances a little more.

My family "adopted" a little girl named Sofia, from Uganda, several months ago. Every time I get a letter from 6 yr old Sofia I just cry. My family is making a difference in the life of a child. I do believe that God wants us to be aware and active in world missions as well as local missions and this organization is something I deeply believe in.

Would you please click on their website from either link above and prayerfully consider how your family can give back when we have more than enough?

Sofia is a part of my heart. She is prayed for every night by my boys. It's strange, but she has a piece of our heart.

With a grateful heart and so much love for our Savior....I am grateful for all of you, my life, and the many blessings given to me.

How will you make a difference this season?? Let's step out and do something different.

"Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves. … Defend the rights of the poor and needy." — Proverbs 31:8-9

Hugs and blessings~

this is so odd, my friend. I've been stewing about sponsoring a compassion child for 2 weeks now... guess it's time to put it to prayer and do it.

thanks for the push!
