Between snow days with the kids, sick days with the Rileyman, visiting colleges and applying for scholarships with Devyn, getting Shining Hope Soap made and up for sale and all that comes with trying to have an at home business (such as dodging the Nerf bullets that are flying through the air while mixing up batches of soap) this year has been a whirlwind so far. But good stuff and blessings all around. First of all, Shining Hope Soap is beginning to take off. In just three weeks, soap sales totalled $87.50 for the month-of which 10% goes to Lifeline Christian Mission for Haiti. Click HERE to visit the Etsy shop and make a purchase.

January's Art for Haiti was completed. The painting was inspired by a photo that my Aunt Linda had taken while on a Mission trip to Haiti of a young man reading his little Bible. When I saw it, several scriptures came to mind but the most fitting I decided for this painting would be
"Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path."
100% of the purchase price of this painting goes to Lifeline Christian Mission for Haiti.
A check was mailed out to Lifeline Christian Mission to support the children and their families devastated by the earthquake in January 2010.
And just this week, our pride and joy, Devyn McNabb, signed with Carson Newman College. This is a very exciting time and we are feeling the blessings let me tell you! Devyn made a special request for us to pull the Rileyman out of kindergarten so he could be present during the signing. The Rileyman just so happens to be his biggest little fan. Notice my giant smile. And that handsome fella on the other side......we are some very VERY proud parents.
