Christmas and Compassion International

The Christmas season is here and as always we’re inundated with deals, sales, and the pressure of buying, buying, and buying. Let me begin by saying I get sucked into the pressure like everyone else! I want to find the perfect gifts for family and friends who probably already have more than what they need.

But I want more! No I’m not talking about material things. I want to DO more, GIVE more, and LOVE more. I want to make an eternal difference.

I have recently gotten involved with Compassion International. Compassion exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to sponsor a child. Here’s my sweet Jenifer that I sponsor. Jenifer is from Peru and I have the privilege of making a difference in her life.

I keep her picture on my refrigerator to remind me to pray for Jenifer daily.

I hope you know, I would not share a ministry with you that I did not feel was making a difference! Please read more about Compassion International here.

Jen from Beauty and Bedlam is a friend of mine who recently got to meet her sponsored child, you can read her story here. It will bless you!

To sponsor a child you only have to give $38 a month. I am more than willing to give up a new dress or blouse to sponsor Jenifer.

But I know for some of you sponsoring a child might not be feasible at this time. Money is tight and I undersand!

Compassion has a gift catalog where you can give a one time donation to a specific need. How cool is that? Instead of Black Friday, Cyber Monday,  it’s Giving Tuesday. I love it!


If you’ve been looking for a way you can give back this Christmas season, why not give to Compassion International. You CAN make an eternal difference in a child’s life!

Have you ever heard of Compassion International?
