We Sold Our First Poster!!!

I'm so excited to announce that 

My amazing husband designed 2 beautiful James 1:27 posters
to help us raise some of the funds that we need to adopt our son.
Once we bring Kaden home, our desire is to continue to offer these posters for sale
so that we can help support other families that are adopting
and to help ministries that provide care for orphans and widows.

Katie, thank you so much for purchasing one of our posters
and for helping to bring our son home!

"Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this:
To visit orphans and widows in their distress,
and to keep oneself unstained by the world." James 1:27 (NASB)
