Giving them a "Headstart"

 We spent lunch giving books to these sweet kids at a Headstart program downtown. One of the best parts about sharing  books with kids is the look on their faces when we get to tell them that they can keep the books.

The sweet one in the middle asked Katie what her name was when we stopped to talk to them. As we were leaving she then proceeded to yell "Thank you Katie!" 😀 This resulted in a chorus of "Thank you Katie!"from around the room.  

There really is no other way that I would rather spend my free time than this. I mean seriously, look at those sweet faces.


Looking forward to Friday when we get to hand out close to 600 books down at Weiser Park!

Just a few of the cuties we got to give books to this week

We got to give away close to 600 books this week! These little cuties are just a few of the kids we met. As we were giving out books a couple of them just climbed right up on my lap. :) I even got to read a little bit to them.

This article tells exactly why we do what we do! Planning on giving away over 600 books this week. God is so good! Please take a minute read this article. It gets to the heart of our whole program.
