Oh Gwen, I love your new "look"! That sweet Becky is so very talented!!!
I'll be praying over the list of requests that you posted! I have especially had the Chapman family on my heart for the past few days...God has put them there for a reason...and He knows what it is..so I just pray for them...many times!!!

Now I have one....dear friends applied "officially" today to adopt a sibling group from Ethiopia....so they officially began their "wait" today! They are a family of 6 ...(4 kiddos + mom & dad) They homeschool too....and they go to our church!
Please be in prayer for them..as they begin this heart journey! I am so excited to see what GOD does!!! They are such a fabulous family!

Hugs and Love to you sweet friend!!!

The new makeover is darling and very fresh. I will pray with you for your needs. I love that you are supporting a child through Compassion. They are a wonderful organization.
Hoping our paths will cross again one day in person.

Gwen,

We have a very similar background and I just love it. I love that you are asking for prayer requests for these families. I truly believe in the power of prayer.

Can I ask a favor of you...my 61 year old dad, who taught and coached high school basketball for 33 years, passed away last month from a heartattack. My little 9 year old sister, Paige, is so distraught. We are seeking grief counseling. If you could please join us in prayer for our family. I would greatly appreciate it!
In Christ,
Missy

I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again... you are such a special person!
