praise report

Before I get to the awesome Expecting stuff, I’m speaking at a Ladies’ Tea today at 2:00pm at a church just down the country road from where my Grandma used to live (she’s in a nursing home now). I’m super-excited because Mom and Dad are picking Grandma up and bringing her to the Tea. The last time Grandma heard me speak was over four years ago. And I hate to say this, but this could be the last time she hears me speak. So, it’s going to be pretty special for me. And pretty emotional, I’m afraid.

I would love your prayers–that God will be glorified, Grandma will be tickled, and the rest of the women will be impacted for Him. Thank you!

And now! Here are the names of the centers that have already received their books (or will soon because they’re in the mail) and the names I wrote in the books. I’m going to start from the beginning one last time. From here on out, I’ll just pick up where I left off. 93 books have been sent out of 224 (!) donated. I’m waiting on a shipment of books from the publisher right now.

Praising God for His awesomeness!

Working on boxes for Centers in Virginia, Louisiana, Ohio, Arkansas, California and Illinois. Again, if you have personal connections with a pregnancy center near you (or not near you), please let me know!

If you’re interested in sponsoring a box (paying for shipping–$10.35), contact me. (I think my e-mail form is working now.) And you can absolutely still donate books for $5 apiece here.

Have a great weekend, friends!

    Hey, Marla~

    I don’t know if you’re looking for more pregnancy centers. Unfortunately, I don’t have any personal connection to this one, other than it’s the one from the town I grew up in.

    LIFE Center, 78 W. Hill Street, Wabash, IN 46992

    Keep up the great work!

    Cheering you on~

    Praying all went very well for you and your family this weekend. How precious speaking with your Grandmother there with you, had to be an absolute awesome time for everyone there.
    Don’t know about you, but the one Grandmother I KNEW was probably the most influential person in my life….oh what a wonderful, sweet, inspiration, to all who knew and loved her.
    Praying you and yours have a wonderfully blessed Thanksgiving week. So thankful to have you as a ‘real friend’!! hugs….
    Blessings always….love,
    Matthew 21:22
