This is the blog authored by my daughter. She is a 14 year-old homeschool student with a love for helping others. Recently our church decided to sponsor 2 orphaned children from Haiti. Since then, she has decided to continue helping the people of Haiti by making and selling bookmarks and more. Her logo is "Every dollar brings a smile." Please show your support for her ministry to help the people of Haiti! Blessings!
I just want to tell you that I have new tie dye strings, so if you would like a bracelet that changes colors I have new tie dye strings! I have also made new bracelets! Some of them I have used with the tie dye strings! In the picture below, I will have a star next to the tie dye bracelets! There should be only 2 without a star. As you can tell, I really like the new strings! I hope you guys like them! I really like making bracelets with the tie dye strings because it just looks so cool when I'm done with it!

Hello My Friends, I have so much to tell you, so I hope you have some time on your hands because this may take a while... Well first of all, Sunday afternoon my mom and I got to go help my neighbor, her family, and friends pack Christmas bags for the people in the Navy! We packed food, cards, toiletry items, & much, much more! We packed 100 bags! It was pretty crazy to see all the bags when we were done! While we were packing things to put in the bags, I had to read all the cards that kids had wrote for the bags that were going to be sent to the Navy. There were some funny ones, some sweet ones, & ones that I couldn't quite understand, but I know each one was made with so much love! Below is a picture of Me and a girl named Madison who help pack the bags for the Navy!
Ok, moving on! After we got through working on the bags, We went to church. That night Jackie Hancock, from The Voice Of The Martyrs, came and spoke at my church! We watched a video about a girl in China who spent 6 years in prison because she believed in Jesus Christ. In prison, she spent her time making Christmas lights. So when you see that things are made in China they're probably made by prisoners. It broke my heart just watching the video. I just can't get my head around the fact that other people are being treated in such bad ways for the same thing that I believe. Hebrews 13:3 says, "Remember the prisoners, as though you were in prison with them, and the mistreated, as though you yourselves were suffering bodily." And if you go to verse 6 it tells us, "Therefore, we may boldly say: The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" I love those two verses! We need to pray for these people! A quote Jackie said last night was, "Don't pray for the persecution to stop. We can stop anytime, all we have to do is stop preaching the gospel." That quote is so powerful and so true. If you look below, I have a picture of Jackie and I after she had got done speaking.
I know, I've wasted half of your time, but I promise you I just have one more thing! I have made a new kind of bracelet! They're beaded! How cool is that?! Look below for a picture of the new bracelets!
I'm sorry for the long post! I just had so much to say! Hope you guys have a great week!
