About Me

My photo
I love Jesus. I love my family. I love photography. I love books. I love thinking. Probably in that order. I have a wonderful husband, five beautiful daughters, a house, and a camera. I enjoy spending time talking to my husband, playing with my girls, redecorating my house and shooting things with my camera. In my spare time, I sleep.

Looking after orphans

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."  
James 1:27

My bloggy friend, Tiffany from A Moment Cherished, and her family are in the beginning stages of adopting a child from Ethiopia.  Courtney from Storing Up Treasures has already adopted four children. (Two from Russia and two domestically.)  I have felt very pulled to support their cause and am here to enlist your help as well on their behalf.  Courtney & her husband (the Rockstar) are leading a campaign to raise funds for 26 families who are in the process of adopting.  Their goal is to raise 10K in 20 days.  Tomorrow is the last day and they are still a couple thousand dollars short!  If you can,  please donate as much or as little as you can to help them meet this goal!  Click on this 10K in 20 days to donate or the button below. Or if you'd rather, you can support Jim & Tiffany's adoption directly by going to her page and clicking on the Chip-In button on the sidebar.  (They also have a coffee fundraiser if you like coffee and a T-shirt fundraiser, as well.) 

I pray that you'll seriously take a minute to check out what these families are doing and pray about what you may be able to do to help.  One of the most tangible ways we can help orphans is by giving them a family and a loving future and you know that makes God smile!
