Links I Love

linksIlove

As I enjoy this beautiful snowy morning, I thought it would be nice to share some links that I have loved recently.

Jolanthe from Homeschool Creations shared a bunch of neat printables that go along with the book The Snowy Day. 

Our Luna had fun sitting down and working on these sheets, which you can find right here.

Jill from Compassion Family has been sharing some of the first letters she received from her sponsored child named Judith.  These letters are just so sweet and I have really enjoyed reading them.  You can see Jill’s most recent post here.

The official Compassion blog published a nice story on the way letters are handled in their Global Ministry Center in Colorado. Click here to check that story out! Tears of joy came to my eyes to see how the new letter writing tool has increased the number of letters that are written online each day.

There’s a video that is going viral on Facebook that I really enjoyed.  I may not agree on every point, but I found it to be very thought provoking to say the least. I can’t seem to embed the video into this post, but you can go and see it on Youtube by clicking here.

I also want to share the link to a beautiful girl that has been on my heart.  Her name is Enid Kinya and she’s a orphan living in Kenya.

She is 16 and shares my birthday of August 1st.  Currently she is living with her grandmother and I would love to be able to connect her with a sponsor that could help bring love and encouragement to her family.  If you would like to learn more about Enid, please click here. Also, if you would please join me in praying that her future sponsor will see this and hear God’s whisper on their heart, I would appreciate it.

Lastly, I have a lighthearted picture to share.  We found a series of books at the library about a little girl named Stella.  My girls think she looks a lot like me.

Given the fact that we’ve got a fresh coating of fluffy snow out there, I thought this was fitting.

Be blessed today, friends!
