Shop With A Purpose


Last year, a friend of my sister's endured a nightmare you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy. Her husband and the father of their six children (youngest was a newborn) was tried, convicted, and sentenced to 30 years in jail. She was completely unaware of the secret life he was living until the FBI showed her some of their evidence. She lost their beautiful family home, cars, and everything of value she had but was able to get by at first on donations from my sister's church, her church, family, and friends. She has been relying on the compassion of friends and walking in faith knowing that Christ has been with her every step of the way. Recently, an opportunity opened up for her to start an Ebay store and she has had early success with it. She's not making enough money to completely support her family, but it's a real boost for a stay at home mom who didn't have a career. Please go to Asher's Bunch Boutique add it to your "favorites" and pick up a little something with the assurance that you're helping a family get back on it's feet. Asher and his brothers and sisters thank you.

Oh, what a tragedy! We really never know what tomorrow will bring. I'll be praying for this family and God will provide! He just does.
