Encourage us – Time for a give-away!


Sometimes it’s easy to lose sight of what you’re doing.  More than that, it’s easy to lose sight of WHY you’re doing what you’re doing.  Right?  Someone tell me I’m not the only one!  Yeah, I know I’m not.  So today I’m trying to remember all the “whys.”  I look around my house and see various reminders… little handprints on the window, a note from my 6 yr old that says “Mom I luv yu” and some beautiful flowers my husband brought home for me last week.  But my eyes come to rest on a cross.  It’s a small, wooden, hand-painted cross from Chiapa de Corzo (not far from here).  It’s simple.  It’s beautiful.  It explains everything!  We’re not here to push a church, philosophy, or way of living.  We just want to share the cross and all that it means to us!

So here’s the give-away.  It’s a cross!  It’s actually a carved, polished fossil cross.  I’ve seen girls wear these on a long leather cord, and I’ve seen guys wear them shorter… the cord has one of those slidey-knots (is that a word?) that you can easily adjust the length with.


A fun, simple reminder for you or a friend.


Yes it’s totally free (shipping included).  All you have to do to enter is answer one little question for me in the comments below.  Ready?  Here it is:  What is the hardest thing you’ve ever done, and what got you through it?

I will randomly draw a name in a few days, then get the cross in the mail.  Can’t wait to read your comments!
