"Blog Party... a BIG Blog Party!"

Ok ya'll... I've been saying there was some fun things coming this way... BUT before I get into the giveaway details, I wanted to say this first:

What I'm about to do, I said I would never do. I truly HATE self promotion. HATE.IT. And I don't want this giveaway to be that. I struggled with the idea of "followers" because I just hate that word first of all (unless it pertains to following Jesus, of course). I dislike promoting the blog, because I don't want to promote myself or my sweet family.

The reason I want to do a giveaway is 3 fold.

1. To celebrate what God has been doing, and to say "thanks" to the people who have been reading along. We are starting a new chapter in our lives and what better way than to have a little "blog party! a big blog party!" (what knock off is that from? moms, you know this)

2. I truly believe that God is doing amazing things through LifeSong overall... and through their work in Zambia. I believe God is about to knock us to our knees with experiences that I can't even imagine at this moment. But what I know now, is that I'm so in love with these kids, the people, and that place... and I want to share what GOD is doing there with as many people as I can... because our God is mighty... and HE deserves to be praised... right here on this blog.

3. Our heart is to mobilize believers... we want to educate and give a way people just like you can be involved in loving orphans, vulnerable children, and their families... so stick around, because I'm certain that we will need people just like you to pray, love our kids, and maybe even come visit someday!

With that said... we want to CELEBRATE and ENCOURAGE you to sit with us and watch what amazingly BEAUTIFUL THINGS He does in our lives and the lives of those we serve in Zambia...
