Hope Boxes

Yesterday I took a trip out to Mardels and Hobby Lobby to get a few more things on sale to build more hope boxes.  So far, all I've been able to find on sale are the journals at Mardels and the photo boxes at Hobby Lobby.  Wait a minute… I don't think I've explained Hope Boxes yet.  Shortly after Jaxon died and I joined Mallie's facebook group, I got a hope box.  It included a bible, a journal, the One Year book of Hope by Nancy Guthrie, Heaven by Randy Alcorn, scripture cards, tea, lotion, lip balm, and info about Hope Mommies.  It comforted me on a whole new level.  It connected me with other women who share this journey… an awful journey, but one with hope.  We support each other and remind each other that we will see our babies again.  (See the Hope Mommies button I added to the blog on the right? :) I was so proud of myself when I got it to work!  I'm slowly learning how to navigate blogger. Ha!  Still clueless about Google plus though and have no idea why Google is connected to blogger?- oh well)  Here's a picture of my box and the things inside…

Fyi- I have 10 of these boxes going, but none of them are complete!  They still need bibles, lip balms, Jesus Today, and the One Year book of Hope.  If you'd like to help out, let me know and I would LOVE your help- you would be such a blessing to one of these mommies.  Here's what I've got started… 

When I stop feeling sorry for myself (ugh a yucky habit I've got to break!), I know that this ministry is way bigger than me, and I am so glad to have connected with other moms that I can share this journey with.  Support and HOPE make a huge difference and offering that to another mom in this little box is the least I can do.  Amazing stuff!
