Elizabeth's Birthday Donations

This year, instead of letting our friends bring gifts to Elizabeth's birthday party, we asked everyone to bring donations for a local Ministry- A Women's Pregnancy Center. They are a safe haven for any young ladies who are facing a crisis pregnancy. Not only offering an alternative to abortion but sharing Christ as well. We had a great time taking the donations today and Elizabeth was excited about taking "diapers to the babies". They gave her a copy of "Horton Hears a Who" as a thank you and took her photo next to her donations. If you have a birthday for a child coming up, you should consider allowing them to pick a charity or ministry and allowing your friends and family to help you bless others. It's a good learning experience for your kids and let's the world see what it means to "love your neighbor".
