For the love of trees.

Trees.
They spread forth life like the sun spreads light. Beauty reaching up and reaching out. Spreading underneath the ground, hidden, unnoticed. Pure, green, vibrant. Touching the very air we breathe.
Make me like a tree. Spreading love, reaching up and out, beneath, unnoticed, touching and cleansing the air around me.

Of paint, little girls in smocks and ice cream.


Last Saturday our church left the building – we scattered across town and did projects for The Christian Mission, The Soup Kitchen, yard work, picking up trash, and so on. It was an awesome day of loving our community! John and I got to paint at the Christian mission with some of our friends from life group which was way too much fun.
The girls getting decked out in their little smocks. :)


Some tunes to entertain us as we worked.. :)


Anna and Emily would have to be the cutest little workers ever..

We ended the morning by stopping in for some delicious ice cream at the brand new Deluxe parlor. If you live in the area and haven’t tried Deluxe yet, you absolutely must. It’s so so incredibly yummy.

Shadow me.

He wants them to learn to walk and must therefore take away His hand; and if only the will to walk is really there He is pleased even with their stumbles. C.S. Lewis

The ancient skies above..

Sing to God, you kingdoms of the earth,
sing praise to the Lord,
to him who rides the ancient skies above,
who thunders with mighty voice.
Proclaim the power of God,
whose majesty is over Israel,
whose power is in the skies.
Psalm 68:32-34 TNIV

One Day Without Shoes


Yesterday, I joined thousands of people around the world and walked around barefoot. So that kids don’t have to.

Why?

Kids all over the world don’t have shoes. They can’t afford them, can’t access them, there’s a variety of reasons. Shoes protect these kids from getting cuts and injuries, from transmitting hookworm and other foot diseases, and last but so important, many children are not allowed to go to school without shoes. That’s why I’ve joined up with TOMS shoe company, where for every pair you purchase, they give one to a child in need. They team up with the local schools and organizations in the countries where they work, and hand place the shoes on the children’s feet. It’s life changing.

Join us next year for One Day Without Shoes by signing up HERE. Be sure to check out TOMS shoes! Not only do they serve an incredible purpose, but they are stylish and also the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn. And no, they are not paying me to say this, I swear. I’m saying this simply because I truly believe that it’s a great cause. Because I want my fashion to reflect the heart of God, the reaching out and touching his children for Him.. and giving them a better life. -beth

Give a gift. Change a life.

Today is my birthday! And this year I’m asking for something a little different. Instead of presents, I’m asking for gifts for the children around the world through my gift catalog with World Vision. There’s a large variety of gifts to choose from: a goat, medicine, school books, fruit trees, clean water, a soccer ball… and the list goes on. If you feel lead to give towards my birthday catalog, please click HERE. Even if you don’t feel like this is the time or place for you to give personally, I have a request. Please share my gift catalog with your family and friends via Facebook, twitter, email, reblogging this or any other social media outlets. The more people who known about it, the more people who get a chance to give! This gifts are literally life changing and not just for the child who receives the gift, but for the whole community as well. It’s life changing for the giver, too.

“And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.” Matthew 25:40
