Happy National Orphan Awareness Month!

I have been excited about the month of November for quite some time now. It is orphan awareness month and I say we get busy for the sake of the 147 million orphaned children in this world. I hope to do several post sharing resources that will change the hearts of many, and bring hope to the lives of the desperate.

Our church is going all out for the sake of the orphan for the entire month. If you are in Birmingham.... you should plan to join us at Christ City Church for the next 4 weeks. I will be sharing more details about the agenda later in the week.

To kick off the month, I want to do a book give away. When we first started praying about adoption, we read Russ Moore's, Adopted for Life. It made a huge impact on us, and now I would like to give away a copy to one of YOU! If you would like to join the drawing.... just leave your name and e-mail address in the comment section and I will add you to the list. I will plan to draw for the winner this coming week-end. Even if you already have the book, get your name in the drawing.... you could always give it to a friend or family member for Christmas : )

You can read about the book HERE!

Best wishes to all!
