Building the Blocks

I met this family through the blog world about 4 or 5 years ago.  I have been keeping up with them ever since.  I got to FINALLY meet Amy at the Together 4 Adoption conference back in October.  Amy's heart is so very real on her blog and in person.  She does NOT hold anything back, she speaks truth in such a loving way. 

Todd & Amy have 9 children!  They have 4 biological beauties and 5 adopted beauties as well. God has called the Block family 'to go and do' by moving to Guatamala to care for orphans there.  This is HUGE since Guatamala closed adoptions to the US several years ago. 

Here's what I am doing:  I am praying that God will allow me to partner with the Blocks and use my business to fundraise for them as I do for other families adoptive families. We will also be praying for them daily.  I look up to and respect Amy so much, that I want to be open to what God wants us to do to support them. 

Please watch the video below and see just how the Block family is living out James 1:27 and think/pray about partnering with them, details on how are below the video. 

"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(NIV)

Would you please consider partnering with this family as they partner with the Lord caring for the least of these?

It's my birthday and this is what I want.....

Today I turn 34 which means I've been:

  • a daughter for 34 years
  • a big sister for 30 years
  • a wife for 14 years
  • a mom for 7 years
  • and a fighter for what's right...well I'm still new at this one, so it's probably been 9 months.
Human trafficking is close to my heart, I probably don't fight for it as loud as I should, but I do think about the 'what ifs'.  What if it was MY daughter, what if it was MY niece...what if's can go all day long. But action speaks louder than words.

So for my birthday, I would like to see how much money we can raise to fight human trafficking.  Please click on the button and donate $5 and I will send YOU a gift, you just have to tell what kind.

Thanks for helping me fight for those who have no voice or freedom.*

*All money raised will go to Children's HopeChest and they will put it to good use in India.*
