Pack A Shoebox and Change A Life!

I'm short on time, but this is sooo important, so here goes!

Operation Christmas Child is an awesome ministry that we've participated in for years. It's fun, easy, and it makes an impact on our whole family while changing the life of a child somewhere on this planet.

Please, please take a couple of minutes to watch this video. (Make sure to turn off my music player at the bottom of the left sidebar, so you can hear the video.)

A Gift for Katje by Candace Fleming is an excellent book to read as your family puts together your box(es). Not necessary, but a great addition to the whole experience. :)

The deadline for dropping off boxes is Monday, Nov. 22nd. You can find out the location of the collection site nearest you and learn how to pack your box by visiting Samaritan's Purse. (And this year you'll be able to track your box and see where it goes...very cool!)

I pray that you'll feel moved to participate and change the life of a child this Christmas!

Blessings to you,


  1. I, too, just recently packed and dropped off a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child. It is such a great cause, one of my favorite parts about Christmas. God bless you and your family this season!

  2. Boxes for Katje ;)

    We love OCC. It's the one service project we do every year. I can remember pushing Ben around in the store cart choosing items when he was really too young to understand what we were doing. He has no memory of Christmastime without making shoeboxes!


I enjoy reading your comments and so appreciate them. It usually takes me a few days to reply, so thanks for your patience and for dropping by!
