Merry CHRISTmas

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Going Once, Going Twice... (link added!)

UPDATE ~ Here's the link to Elisabeth's online auction that runs from December 8 to December 15, 8 p.m. CST.
Bringing Kohlby Home

My friend Elisabeth is hosting an on-line auction on Facebook to help us bring Kohlby home, and it's going live tomorrow, December 8!!!

It is with thankful and humble hearts that we ask if you have a unique item you'd be willing to donate for this auction.

I know, it's right before Christmas, and everyone is so busy.  But our little guy will be without his family this Christmas, and we are willing to work as hard as we can to get him home once we are granted final approval from China.

The auction will run for one week, and we can add new items throughout.  If you have an item you wish to donate, you may comment or email me.   Also, would you be willing to ship the item to the winning bidder?  

Maybe you can help us in one of these ways:
*prayer (always, always need that!)
*donating an item
*bidding on items

We are so grateful, and we praise God in advance for what He will do through this auction!!!

 Once the auction goes live, I'll post the link.

Our YouCaring Site

We've set up a YouCaring site!

I finally realized that our PayPal button isn't seen on many devices, so this will give easier access to those who desire to help us bring Kohlby home!

To Him be glory!

Sweeten Your Shopping With an Amazon Gift Card!

So, please don't tell me you're finished shopping!

And if you are that together, don't tell me :)

But, seriously, if you're like me, you've made your kids stay off the computer this week because you've kept the Amazon tab open!

So how about a shot at wrapping up your shopping with a $250 Amazon gift card?

We found out today that our dossier is in the final stage before LOA!!!  I've gotta admit that my heart is beating a little faster now, even though we're still at least 3 months from travel.

How can you enter the drawing for the gift card?
*Use the PitchInBox in the right sidebar or email me for other options.
*$10 gets you 1 shot
*$20 gets you 3 shots
*Each blog, FB, IG share gets an additional shot
*Runs from December 5 to December 15

Good luck and thank you!!!

Scents of Christmas ~ My Handpoured Candles are Available!

In time for gift-giving (even for yourself!), I'm offering our two top-selling scents for the Christmas season ~
Faithfulness ~ Pumpkin Pie Spice

Joy ~ Butter Cream
*Note* ~ The label is actually the same font and appearance as "Faithfulness".  I'm making "Joy" now :) 

Each candle is hand-poured by yours truly and will be shipped immediately via Priority mail.
I guarantee safe delivery.  If your candle(s) arrive damaged, I will replace them.

This time, rather than charging postage separately, I've included it in the price of the candle, making the total $18 (that's actually a .50 savings).

The blessing of these candles is two-fold ~ You get to enjoy these delicious candles that burn for days, AND you help us bring Kohlby home!  
*we are currently at day 53 of our LOA wait*

The PayPal Button is in the top right sidebar of this blog.  You may add any number and scent to your cart, and you don't have to have a PayPal account to order.
Thank you!
