Crazy Love! Adoption Fundraisers!

    Awhile back Linny at A Place Called Simplicity started something called Crazy Love. It is, in a nutshell the idea of saying 'Yes!' to when you see a need, right away. The idea being, in Linny's words

"Basically, we are committed to living life for Christ with reckless abandon, and with hearts full of "Crazy Love. "

and she describes Crazy Love like this

"Stop for a moment and imagine what Crazy Love would look like? It's love that says, "only you God and everything I can for my 'neighbor'. Whatever you ask - I'll do. Wherever you want me to go - I'll go. However you ask me to do it - I'm there. Whenever you want me - I'm available. Whatever. Wherever. However. Whenever. Ready. Willing. Watching. Waiting."

That is just a tiny taste of what she has to say! You can read the whole thing Here!

I SO want my life to be sold out, nothing held back ready to go and do Whatever (read about the Whatever Project here, you'll have to scroll down to find the first post) God asks, whenever He asks it.

Crazy Love led to bringing this little one home!

So I started asking God about how He can use me, a stay at home Mama with a tight budget to help Him. This new and improved blog is part of His answer! I am giving where I can of my money but God also reminded me that I can use my prayers, my writing and my passion to help others as they walk along the adoption road! So now, up at the top of this blog are 'pages' and you can click on them to:

PRAY (Prayer Requests) - This gets the word out about people that we can come around with encouragement and prayer.

AN ADOPTION PLACE (adoption fundraisers) - This is a collecting spot for all of the adoption fundraisers that I know of!!!! Browse around, there are some incredible people doing really creative stuff to bring their children home. It blesses me each time I visit them!

TRAVELLING (families travelling now to get their kids) - You don't want to miss this! A chance to watch God's mighty hand work as families are united. Please stop by these blogs and leave a comment of encouragement as this is one intense time for them!

ORPHAN NO MORE (adoption stories) - This is a place to share your story of what God has done in your family! My hope is that this space encourages those considering adoption, waiting for their child and back home as well as those wanting to learn more about it. Please Email Me your story and some pictures and I am happy to put it up!

GIVE AWAYS! I am also doing give aways to help get the word out for families. If you are interested Let Me Know!

So this is my heart, my dream is to see it grow, to see families encouraged, prayed for, adoptions funded and more than anything else the Lord Glorified!!!!!!

Right now Linny is doing a Crazy Love Link up so if you are doing an adoption fundraiser you don't want to miss this! Click Here! and list yor fundraiser!!!!!

Thanks for doing this. I always love sharing adoption fundraisers too since God provided 100% for our adoption 2 years ago. I also love reading about how creative people get with the fundraisers!

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh what a blessing you are! Thank you so much for helping us bring our daughter home and for helping the other families bring their children home too.
If you haven't read Francis Chan's book Crazy Love you must....
He "gets it!"
We all need to keep our eyes fixed upon Jesus and say, "Yes, Lord!"
It's time the believers in Christ get CRAZY with our love..... after all, isn't that how the world knows we are His.... by our love.....
God bless you,
LOVE <><

From all of us with love said...
