Global Food Crisis

Each night • more than 300 million children go to bed hungry ... how can we help?

Please and click on Compassion International and be linked to view one or all 3 of their current videos & reach out to provide HELP along with them. 

1/3 of the world's population is undernourished...ONE THIRD!!!


Charles Stanley shared this just this week and certainly is worth reading & soaking in its truth:

The Key to Financial Blessing

We could all use our own personal financial adviser to help us navigate the economic turmoil of our times. And according to the prophet Malachi, we have one--God Almighty. He has a plan worked out for our financial security.

His key to financial blessing is the simple principle of Exodus 23:19: "You shall bring the choice first fruits of your soil into the house of the Lord." In offering God the first of our earnings, we acknowledge that He is the source of everything and we are completely dependent upon Him. Old Testament believers were asked to set aside merely a tithe--or ten percent--of all that the Lord generously gave. Malachi equates keeping God's portion for oneself to robbing the Almighty of what belongs to Him 

(Mal. 3:8).

The Lord doesn't need our money, but He knows that we need to give. Doing so with a generous and willing heart displays the character of Christ in our lives.

Remember, Jesus is a giver who gave His life for our salvation.

Generosity is a way to honor and worship the Lord. If our only expression of worship comes from the lips, we are missing the opportunity to demonstrate our love and gratitude for all that God has given us.

You can never out-give your loving heavenly Father. As you obediently offer Him the first part of your income, you'll find that He is faithful to His Word: He will open the windows of heaven and pour out blessing until it overflows (v. 10). In reality, there is greater financial risk in keeping than in giving.

Since my life is a MISSION, I share whenever I can. There are many of you, who do community involvement/church events, volunteer opportunities or know missionaries that you could share to motivate others. Motherhood and Homeschooling are MISSIONS and callings!!!
Each of these are MISSIONS and important to encourage others.
