From my Front Porch ~ January 16, 2015

Welcome back to my weekly series, From my Front Porch, where I share updates from my home and family. My hope is that you'll fix yourself a cup of coffee or tea and imagine us sitting together on my front porch, chatting about life and catching up on the latest news!  I hope you'll join me each Friday on My Front Porch!  

Last Friday afternoon, after posting my Front Porch post, I headed out with Matt and Bethany for our homeschool field trip ~  a visit to the Compassion Experience, which is a traveling display that helps you experience life from the eyes of a child existing in extreme poverty in a developing country. We spent an hour walking through three different "villages," where through the aid of modern technology, we experienced the sights and sounds of a child struggling to survive daily life in a makeshift shack in a poor village.  It was an emotional experience as we realized the hardships and horrors these children experience on a daily basis!  Fortunately, it ended in hope as each now grown-up child shared how Compassion International, their sponsor families, and the love of God had transformed their lives!! 

At the end of the Experience, we had an opportunity to offer hope to a little boy or girl in desperate circumstances by sponsoring a child ourselves through Compassion!

Hope -- if you are an astute reader, you will recognize that as my Word for this year! I believe that the Lord wants to use me this year to offer Hope to others!  I can't wait to see how this continues to play out!  :)

I'm so thankful that my income from my Plexus business enabled me to respond to the prompting in my heart and pledge monthy, life-changing support to a precious child in need!  Here is a picture of the little girl that grabbed my heart:

She is the same age as my little Bethany, and after learning of the fate of many ten year old girls in her situation, my heart yearned to provide her with a way of escape and hope for the future!

If the Compassion Experience comes to your area, I encourage you to Go and take your children!  This life-changing experience is currently in Franklin, TN.  (You can check for a location near you by clicking HERE.)

Last Saturday, I went to Macon, GA for a Plexus Super Saturday event. I enjoyed the conference, which was both practical and inspiring, and I loved the special time of fellowship with the two ladies I rode with!  It was a truly a special day!

I'm so excited about the Plexus products and opportunity! the more I learn, the more impressed I am with this company and the amazing, life-changing testimonies of those using the products!  To learn more about Plexus, please message me, or visit my website!

These fabulous products (and the business opportunity) are providing hope to people every single day!!

It has been a busy, but awesome week! My weekend will be consumed with basketball games!! So, maybe I'll have some basketball pictures to share next week!

Have a blessed weekend and may I encourage you to look for ways to bless others!  :)


Thanks for stopping by my front porch for a visit! I'd love for you to take a moment to "sign my guest book" (leave a comment!) so I can know that you stopped by and enjoyed your visit!  Please join me again next Friday on my front porch!
