Celebration Giveaway! (Adoption and Family)

So I have this video. This VERY cool video I bought (with the help of my awesome friend Donna) at a very reduced price. Normally it's $45...and worth every penney.

It also just so happens I was blessed to meet Karyn Purvis the other day and feel honored to have heard her share such wisdom and spiritual insite.

It ALSO just so happens that we recieved our Letter of Acceptance from the Chinese government last week.

You know what I'm thinking? IT'S TIME FOR A GIVEAWAY!!!

There are three videos by TCU's "Institute of Child Developement" that I love above and beyond the others. The first one I'm giving away today. One of the next ones I will giveaway when our Travel Approval comes in from China.

They don't just share what needs to happen to help our children heal, they also share how to do it.

Today I'm giving away "Trust Based Parenting".

If your interested in putting your name in the pot (more likely a little girls dress up hat), just comment on this post WITH a way to contact you. I did have one giveaway where I couldn't find one of the winners!

Sorry, I can't ship outside the U.S..

Here are a couple ways to enter more than one time.
*Link to this post on your blog and share this giveaway. Don't forget to let me know!
*Give an encouraging comment on ALL THREE of the teens blogs below (one extra entry). I know that's a lot to ask, but they are great kids and I want them to be bombarded with love for their strength to stand up for what they believe. Please stay encouraging!

This is our happy dance and we just want everyone to be dancing with us :)!!!!!

Thanks for celebrating with us! The winner will be drawn in two weeks on October 14th!

The awesome teens and their blogs...

"Cracked Pot" by Lexi

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
