Holidays, holy-days, were made for families. In God’s grand plan since Eden He gave His people times to gather, remember His work for us, and celebrate our belonging to Him. That’s why I started Ever Thine Home 7 years ago and why I need your vote of affirmation now…more on that in a moment…but first a couple quick pics from two of our three Christmas trips.
This season I’ve enjoyed seeing photos from lots of families sharing how they’ve used our names of Jesus ornaments, Adorenaments, to make Him known. Last week I received a great email from a friend who has caught the vision for her family.
Thank you Barbara for your thoughtful and passionate efforts to help us decorate beautifully with the names of Jesus…that we have received over the years…and it was a marvel this year to realize just how many we have to enjoy and remind us of the truth. Our children especially love this year's new collection (His Family Names) and each immediately claimed one, raced to their bedrooms and decorated near their beds. I've convinced them to loan their ornaments to our Christmas tree for a few weeks. The best part was last night when our seven year old suggested that perhaps next year we should only put Jesus on the tree, no other ornaments. I love that the message is resounding in his heart. Praying that your ministry continues to thrive.
This story is why I dream, create, and labor to serve your family and so many others. But dreams take a lot of hard work and help from others to make them a reality in your home.
I am excited to share with you that a family who really believes in ETH and wants to help it grow has offered to match every dollar that you give with a dollar of their own, up to a total of $20,000 between now and midnight December 31. That means your $30 gift will be matched by their $30, giving us $60; $100 is matched and becomes $200…$300 becomes $600…giving us much needed funds to create new ways to make Jesus known and also re-order some of our best sellers that sold out, plus keep my free blog going which has over 19,000 subscribers.
That means if we can raise $20,000 from friends like you, we can take full advantage of the $20,000 and we’ll have $40,000 to begin to dream and create more practical biblical help for your family.
As I’ve mentioned before, as of this past August, Ever Thine Home is now independent of FamilyLife and is an IRS approved non-profit…which means your donations are tax deductible. Could I ask you to give a generous gift and put some wind in our sails?
Thanks in advance for your help.
P.S. I don’t think I’ve shared with you that neither Dennis or I take any salary from Ever Thine Home. In fact, we are donors too. ETH isn’t about us, it’s about you and your family now, and for the generations that follow. Remember, your gift given by midnight December 31 will be matched dollar for dollar up to $20,000. Thanks again for being a fan of Ever Thine Home and for standing with us.
