Prison Bars

Whoever closes his ear to the cry of the poor
will himself call out and not be answered. ~Proverbs 21:13




For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land. ~Deuteronomy 15:11



Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. As it is written,

“He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor;
his righteousness endures forever.”

He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God. For the ministry of this service is not only supplying the needs of the saints but is also overflowing in many thanksgivings to God.
~2 Corinthians 9:6-12

If you are not in a postion to adopt please pray about how you can help through PRAYER, ADVOCATING & DONATING...

When God Speaks!

If you had told me 10yrs ago I would have 9 kiddos in my home, I would have laughed and thought that is insanity!!! LOL But somewhere along the road I have been consistently walking with the One. I slowly began staying beside Him, walking with him, sometimes even following behind him a bit, always striving to not be led astray. Yes, there were times when I wandered away looking for something for myself, something to fill what I really just need Him to fill; but every day I am drawn closer to the One who created me, the One who gets me through every day, the One who gave me a heart for the hurting, for the oppressed, for the orphan. So.......until the day that I take my last breath and join my Father who loves & cares for me; I will pray, advocate, adopt, donate and whatever else God shows me to help those who cannot help themselves. Because when God speaks & you TRUST Him, your life is forever changed!

The faces that I think of when I should be sleeping, so instead I pray for them and their family that I know is out there SOMEWHERE...

Is one of these sweet faces your child?









If God has been speaking to your heart please visit this site to see if your little one is there.

"There is no merit in thinking about doing something. The result is exactly the same as not thinking about it. It is only doing the thing that counts."

Clarity

“I do not have clarity, what I have is trust. I will pray that you can learn to trust God every day. He will show you what to do each step of the way.” ~Mother Teresa

This is what I repeat to myself often! It makes so much sense. In life we all want a roadmap with all the destinations on it, a clear blueprint of how our life is gonna turn out. But God wants us to roll outta bed every morning, pick up our cross and follow him. No map, No blueprint, No detailed instructions. Just us TRUSTING the One who has come to lead us everyday regardless of the what the world thinks. However hard this may seem, I have seen proof before my eyes that God DOES know what's best for me & he DOES have a beautiful plan for my life:) So I will stop planning the way I want things to go and be still and wait for God to LEAD ME...

"Let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; Let them ever sing for joy, because You defend them; Let those also who love Your name Be joyful in You. For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield. ~Psalm 5:11-12

Disconnected Kids

Thank You to Zack Brown & The Bynum School for hosting Dr. Melillo author of Disconnected Kids. What a blessing to hear from someone who has put his heart & soul into helping kids with special needs and their parents. In his book he lays out a new roadmap for success by presenting an individualized at-home program that allows parents to assess, address, and even CORRECT their child's neurological disconnects, using physical, sensory, and academic exercises. Check this book out!!! He also has Brain Balance centers in several cities where they can help assess & work with your child.
