But seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. (Matthew 6:33)

Our story of giving back
Today, I am a guest blogger over on Kari Gibson's blog, My Crazy Adoption. If you are interested in the whole story of how it came to be that our family became involved with Drawn From Water, go to Kari's blog.
I love being a mom to my 4 beautiful children and wife to my wonderful husband. I don't write to draw attention to myself but to glorify God. What a blessing to have this opportunity to share my testimonies through this journey we call life.
"We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the vitriolic words and actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence of the good people." --Martin Luther King JR., "Letter from Birmingham Jail"
"..and if you spend yourself in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.
The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail." (Isaiah 58: 9 - 11)
