Shoebox Shopping

Have you filled up your shoeboxes yet?

Near the top of my to-do list in the next few days is to go shopping for Operation Christmas Child! This is one of my favorite ministries. Packing a shoebox full of gifts for a child in need is a simple and meaningful way to get into the spirit of Christmas (how is it time to be thinking about Christmas already, anyway?!).

If you're unfamiliar with this ministry, check out this video and short explanation at the Samaritan's Purse website. Have your box(es) ready to go? Search for a drop-off site near you. National Collection Week is next week, so you better get busy!

My favorite Christmas tradition, to be honest! We shopped last week . I am just waiting for a little thing to arrive by mail to stick in my box.

Amy,

On behalf of Franklin Graham, thank you for participating in Operation Christmas Child and for posting this information on your blog.

Congratulations on your little guy. He's cute!
