Esther, Next Stops, LuLaRoe and A Winner!


Thank you so much for praying and fasting with us for Esther.  You guys are beautiful!!  Please ask the prayer chains and Bible studies to continue to pray for her.  We would love if you would also continue to keep an “Esther Alarm” on your phone as a reminder to stop and pray for this beautiful baby girl.  Two days ago I was able to see Esther cooing on FaceTime – she is just as amazing as her photo.  I am leading a GO team of ladies in October and I just cannot wait for the team and I to see her up close!

Meet my big Pile: 

Next, the situation as we head home has become a bit complicated. It’s a long story, but suffice it to say, there will not be as many stops as we first thought as we need to get to Phoenix sooner than later.


Here’s where we are stopping and we would seriously love to meet you:

Sunday August 13th  – 10:00am

Christian Life Assembly  

2209 West Main Street

Stroudsburg, PA 18360

We can’t wait to meet Pastors Craig and Liz Johnson, friends of the orphan!



Sunday, August 20th –  10:30 am 

Cornerstone Church

166 Cornerstone Drive

Vidalia, Louisiana  71373

Pastors Danny and Calley Reed are welcoming us and I will finally get to hug my longtime friend Calley’s neck!!


Katy, Texas – Monday August 21st

Location and time to be announced 

Giddy to see our longtime friends, Gus and Beth!




Speaking of Calley Reed, she’s a LuLaRoe consultant and is having a LIVE LuLaRoe sale tonight, August 10th, with proceeds helping our ministry, International Voice of the Orphan!   If you have been wondering what all the hype is about LuLaRoe or if you are a LuLaRoe addict, please check it out!  You will find beautiful, comfortable, modest clothes and at the same time help feed the orphan, provide emergency medical care or help The Gem Foundation.  That would be a win/win/win in every way!

The LIVE sale starts at 8:00pm CST tonight, August 10th!  To check it out, please go here or search LuLaRoe Calley Reed on Facebook and request to join.   If you stop over to her page now and share the post about the IVO fundraiser tonight, you will be entered in a free leggings giveaway!  Woot! Woot!   And yes, the leggings are just as buttery soft as they say, well, actually maybe even better than butter.

A Winner:

Lastly, we have a winner.  Thank you to all who have purchased The Memorial Box and entered the giveaway!  The winner is Grace – who happen to purchase 3 books!  Grace, please email me to pick out your own Memorial Box which I will send your way!  I have two Memorial Boxes that I have purchased on the road….they are both gorgeous!



Which means…


Another Giveaway!

once Grace picks out the one she wants, we have another one more to give away!!

This time, we are asking for those who have read The Memorial Box to leave a Review of The Memorial Box on Amazon.  It’s okay if you didn’t buy it from Amazon, it is just the only place to leave a Review.

The reason an author likes to have reviews is so that people who happen upon the book can read the reviews and see if they would like to purchase.  This means that folks that might not understand the love of God could possibly read and meet Him in a real way!  So if you have left a review please leave a comment on this post to be entered into another Giveaway for a Memorial Box.  If you have not left a review, but have read the book, please leave a comment on Amazon and then stop back and tell me you did so.

Thank you so much for your help, you guys are amazing!!  xoxo
