Did You Know Your Children Can Change The World? (Giveaway #2)

I received a life-changing book this weekend.  Yes, I said life-changing; for me, and my little girl, Riley.  It's called The Boy Who Changed The World.

This is now, by far, a Thomas Nelson favorite in our home!

Look inside the book here, watch a great video, and get ahead start on ordering the book.  A wonderful gift to get your child, grandchild, niece or nephew for Christmas!  

This book is based on the butterfly effect.  Every time something happens, it causes something else to happen.  This book shares how one child's choice to spread God's love, helped someone else, and someone else, and saved Billions of people from starving!



Written by New York Times best selling author, Andy Andrews!


Did you know, that every choice we make, matters?  

Our daughter Riley just turned 4 on Sunday.  She received a pretty pink polka dot piggy bank from us.  We got it for her with the goal of teaching her discipline in her daily duties, and the skill of saving money.  Riley wants to share her $3.00 a month to support The Mercy House in Kenya.

The odds aren't in her favor. She lives in a country where rape happens every day, all day long. By neighbors, fathers, brothers, even policeman...The majority of these crimes aren't reported. But she bares the scars, inside and out, and the stigma for the rest of her life.


Mercy House Statement:  The Mercy House exists to provide alternative options for pregnant girls living in the streets of Kenya. The Mercy House will aid them in nutrition, housing, prenatal care, counseling, Biblical teaching and job skills for sustainable living. 

Three dollars.
On the Third of each month.
To remember the Three girls raped every 45 minutes.


Will you jump on board?   Just think about it, if we get 100 people on board, that is $300 a month!  500 people on board, is $1500!  What better way to teach our children that THEY can change the world!


Too much selfishness is going on with our children's generation!  Too much looking at themselves, and not reaching out.  Teach them to love like Jesus! 

I have it directly set to come out of my Pay pal account every month on Riley's behalf.  Would you talk with your children and see if they might want to play a part in changing the world?  Stay tuned for more information on this wonderful cause!

So... 3 people will win the book, The Boy Who Changed the World.
