We want to say Thank You!

We have been so blessed over the last few years with such generous people coming along side us to support this ministry. Today I picked up quite a few boxes of books from AT&T. The employees there organized a book drive for us.

A few weeks ago we were able go by the Lucky Duck Consignment Sale and pick up the books that did not sell and the owners wanted to donate.

These are just a few of the many people that make it possible for us to hand out so many books to kids in Fort Wayne. Thank you!!!

Lunch Patrol

So excited to be attending this program this Friday! For more details check out the event here. 

McMillen Park Community Extravaganza

What a fun event! We were able to give away close to 200 books to the families that attended the Extravaganza. We met some pretty amazing kids!

 These girls had me laughing. What a fun group of girls and avid readers. Love that. ❤️ 

 There were so many fun events set up for the kids. Along with the activities below, there was a bounce house, inside playground, and vendors with family related services. My favorite was the sack race that went right by our table. We were entertained all day. 😀

Fort Wayne Housing Authority

The more we get involved in this community, the more I realize how many great programs there are to help kids. The Fort Wayne Housing Authority has a great preschool program with the most amazing teachers. I got to read to these adorable kiddos and then give them a book to take home.

Thankful Thursday

We got to hand out books at the Thankful Thursday Feast with the Fort Wayne Housing Authority last week. Lots of adorable kids came by to get a book. 😀

These girls are AMAZING!

WOW! I really don't know what else to say! These amazing Girl Scouts hosted a book drive at Oak View and collected 5,538 books! THANK YOU Oak View!

Never too young to make a difference!

Before Christmas we got the chance to meet with the sweetest girl by the name of Kaylee. A friend of ours told us about her and how she wanted to meet us. This eight year old is such an inspiration! As we sat and told her about the program she started rattling off ideas of what she could do. Since that time Kaylee has been quite busy. She has already collected a ton of books (pictured below) and has set up times to hand books out to needy kids!

1 Timothy 4:12 NLT
Don't let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and purity.
