For Heather

Edited to add: For love offering updates, click here.

document.jpg Are y’all ready to spread a little love? :-)

Today we have such an incredible opportunity to minister to our sweet friend Heather and her family. If you’re not familiar with the story behind this love offering, you can click here to see all the details.

If you are familiar with the story and ready to BLESS HEATHER’S SOCKS OFF, click on the little “Make A Donation” button below. The minimum donation is just one dollar – but certainly you may give more if you’d like. Your transaction will be completely secure via PayPal, whether you pay with your own PayPal account, your bank account, or a major credit card. If you don’t feel led to give or aren’t able to give today, then you can still contribute by praying for Heather and her family – and I know that they will be beyond grateful for your prayers.

Also: if you’ve supported this love offering for Heather by posting about it on your own blog, by praying about it, by praying for Heather and her family, or by contributing financially, then I’d love for you to leave a comment here that says, simply, “I’m in.”

I’ll be posting updates on our progress throughout the day, and don’t worry – the donation button will stay active for a couple of weeks, at least. So if you can’t contribute right this second, that is perfectly fine…you can come back by tomorrow or the next day and still have the opportunity to give.

More than anything, may God be glorified as His children come forward to lift up sweet Heather.

Thanks, y’all, for everything – and I’ll keep you posted!

    At the rate this thing is growing, Heather’s socks will be shot right off her feet and fly halfway to Fiji.
