Psalm 139:13-16

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

I'm reaching out to all you blog friends to help support Grace's fundraiser for school!  November 2, we are having our BIG fundraiser (by big, I mean the big goal is to raise $100,000 total, meaning $4,000 each per family).  $4,000?!  Is this possible?  I know that God has blessed Grace's school, and that His hand is on it and in it and He is the only reason it exists.  The Little Lighthouse Central Mississippi

So, if you feel lead, please assist us in our fundraiser!  We are about 1/4 of the way to our goal.  We have several ways you can help...

-you can donate directly to the school by using these secure sites:

-you can go to this website and register for the Laps for Little Ones VIRTUAL 5K ($20).  This is a virtual race, so run/walk/crawl where ever you are whenever you can.  You can even complete this race on the treadmill.  No proof is required of completion, but feel free to post your photos to TLLH Facebook page (The Little Lighthouse - Central Mississippi).  TLLH will mail you a race day shirt to the address you supply.  ***Be sure to select that you are running in honor of Grace!

-you can "like" The Little Lighthouse - Central Mississippi on facebook and purchase a Laps for Little Ones 5K tshirt (again, be sure to specify you are supporting Grace)

-you can "like" our fundraiser page "Grace Creations - Handmade Photo Frames" on facebook and purchase a photo frame that Chad and I are making.  ALL proceeds go to our fundraiser.

If you are still reading this blog post, thank you!  We love you too!  :)  Our main goal for our school is to open a fourth classroom to serve more children.  We currently have a lot of children on our waiting list, and I know what that feels like!  Let's not make these children wait any longer than they have to!  They deserve to attend TLLH and learn and grow and develop!  Most importantly, these children learn about the God who created them, perfectly and beautifully!

THANK YOU!!!  We do truly love you and are so thankful for your love and support to our family!

This is Grace and her amazing teacher, Ms. Beth!  


  1. I tried to sign up for the virtual race and kept getting an error when I hit submit. Not sure if it is just me.

  2. Nevermind...3rd time was a charm.

  3. Hi Karen - I'd love to buy a frame to support the Lighthouse! Did you get my email? I can send again if not!

  4. If you'd like to link this post on the link up at today, feel free! Maybe even more folks will see it!
