For a good cause...

It's hard to believe the holidays are just around the corner. So, in anticipation of that I wanted to share two adoption fundraisers that would be great gifts! 


First, if you don't know Kiara you must take a moment to "meet" her through her blog. She is blessed with a beautiful family which will be expanding with the birth of another adoption blessing soon. She makes the most amazing body butters. I know I've posted about them before but seriously, they are wonderful! In fact, I just received our shipment today. This time I bought the original and the Chocolate Peppermint and let me tell you I could eat this stuff. It smells that good! All of it is all natural and safe to use on every body in your house. Why not give some out as gifts? That would be a two-fold blessing...one for those that receive it and one for Andy and Kiara's adoption fund. Go check it out. I promise it's better than anything you can buy at the store!! 


Second, my friend Donna is also in the process of raising the "Ransom" for a sweet girl from Eastern Europe. They are joining up with Dutchman Tree Farms and offering Christmas Trees and Wreaths for your holiday celebrations. Check it out at http://www.facebook.com/l/uAQFllWq0AQEJwUK3n1taOARiBE4k5g51_SfFO1F5dUmkPA/www.dutchmantreefarms.com/organization/MANC 


You'll be spending money anyways, why not spend it on something that can change a life forever!! :)

Are You Ready?

As a pastor, I'm often called upon when life "vanishes like a mist." One of the most powerful examples I've seen of this was Stan Gerlach, a successful businessman who was well known in the community. Stan was giving a eulogy at a memorial service when he decided to share the gospel. At the end of his message, Stan told the mourners, "You never know when God is going to take your life. At that moment, there's nothing you can do about it. Are you ready?" Then Stan sat down, fell over and died. His wife and sons tried to resuscitate him, but there was nothing they could do - just as Stan had said a few minutes earlier.
I'll never forget receiving that phone call and heading over to the Gerlach house. John, a son, stepped out of the car weeping. He asked me, "Did you hear the story? Did you hear? I'm so proud of him. My dad died doing what he loved doing most. He was telling people about Jesus."  I was asked to share a word with everyone ga…

The Old Rugged Cross...

Sean and the guys are between jobs right now and so Zachary has been helping me with odd jobs here around the house. It has been a HUGE blessing to me!  Leaves I never finished raking are finally removed, a campfire pit has been built, a shed sorted and organized (Hallelujah!) and best of all, my Old Rugged Cross is erected! Isn't it terrific?! I've been wanting to build one since watching the Fireproof movie. Zack situated it so I can see it when I look out the window over my kitchen sink. :) He outdid himself on it. He really roughed up the wood and even burnt it to give it that ruggedness I love. There are nail marks in it too. As Zachary carried the cross to set it up Kyalynn kept saying, "look, it's Jesus the Christ, yes it is". LOL! The kids love visiting the cross and this morning Connor was excited to tell me that he was praying at the cross and talking with Jesus. So glad.

Now she's....

11! Can hardly believe our precious, tiny, happy girl is 11 years old!  She's the first one home and I have no doubt that her contagious joy  helped propel us on to adopt 4 more times. :) 



She is a lover of all things but especially birthdays! If she hears it's someones' birthday she gets so excited and plans to be at their party even if she wasn't invited. LOL! She's been diligently reminding us every.single.day sometimes every.minute.of.every.day that her birthday was coming up. There were only two things she wanted.....a Veggie Tales Lord of the Beans dvd and a harp. Yes, you read that right....a harp! Oh my, this girl is a big dreamer but that's better than not dreaming at all! :) So Sean and I set our brains to thinking how we could pull this off for our girl and my man came through!! Check out this beautiful harp he threw together. 

And it's the perfect size for her and even plays music! Sweet! Kyalynn was thrilled and is so cute playing her harp. She als…
