We wrapped our gifts last night...for the "least of these"  

Every December we sit down as a family and choose ministries to give to....a way of giving back to the Lord out of the blessings He has given us...being obedient to His command to give to the "least of these".

Well, this year I decided to give ALL proceeds from the sale of Ann Voskamp's book, The Glorious Coming to Samaritan's Purse.  Last night we sat down as a family and chose a long list of projects and I thought I would share with you how YOU have given to the "least of these" through your purchase of this book.
