It's hard to believe that it's nearly Christmas, and in our family, it's an amazing time! This will be Noah's first Christmas with us. It's been so precious to go through the Christmas season through his eyes - he had never heard the story of the greatest gift ever given to the earth. Jesus, God Himself, put off heaven and came to the world humbly, all for love of us.
It's also an amazing time because we have been matched with another precious boy from China! He just turned 8, and we will adopt him hopefully some time next summer (the paperwork is a long, long process!). You can read all about that below and on my blog
, and we would love your prayers! We cannot wait to meet him!
One very fun thing that happened recently was that we just found out that my album, "Scripture Memory Songs for Kids and Families" was the Number One (!!) album on itunes - in Gambia. Lol, we have no idea how that happened, but I beat Adele, Justin Bieber, Drake, it's amazing! But what I love is that God's Word is going out! That album is at my store
, along with our Christmas Card CDs which have both been reduced in price, and we'd love to have you pick those up for the people in your life - all our sales right now are supporting our new adoption, so you can help us bring our new son home!
We've also had a lot of ministry this fall and are heading into a very busy spring. I love it! I would love to talk to you about how we can partner with you in ministry! Please contact us here
if there's a way we can work together.
This time is so busy, but I don't want to miss the opportunity to encourage you to slow down, consider the real meaning of this season, and remember to thank God! "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16). That is the message of Christmas! I can't wait to welcome the baby Jesus anew into our hearts and remember the most amazing love story ever told.
