Yay...FREE FRIDAY (Postponed)


Yes....sorry Yay Free Friday will be postponed for a while. We received a large group of orders all at once due to the give away at Bring the Rain! It is a HUGE PRAISE and I thank God for the opportunities He gives us! We certainly don't expect any of it knowing that what He gives He can also take away. We are thankful and feel blessed. Every doll that goes out has His word going out into this fallen world and as His truth proclaims...will not return void! Praise God!!
A lot is always going on behind the scenes here at BbB and though we may be quiet online, please know that we are always working, balancing and prayerfully moving forward daily. I've prayed for more hands and feet to help balance out the need we have and with that comes change. Change is always hard for me as the Lord daily reveals my fleshly need for control which in turn reveals ugly behavior traits that I didn't recognize before now. But praise God that he is cleaning out the dark closets that I didn't even know were there! We should be asking daily that those closets are cleaned out and stay clean. So quickly do we tuck something back in there without realizing. I ask that you pray with me...with us...as we move forward in faith!
With many orders that still need to be sewn for January, I haven't had time to make any finished, personalized or giveaway items. Once we are past the swell of orders in house and hopefully have more sewers and cutters in place...I'm thinking that we will need to have a celebration of a week long giveaway! Give me your thoughts on this! Hmmmm the scavenger hunt giveaway was fun!! What other ideas can we come up with?
Have a Blessed Weekend Everyone!!

BIG HUGS AND LOVE!

You are so precious! I loved seeing your photo!!!!!!! Now I know the smile behind the joy on the phone and our getting to know one another! :)

Luke 9:23 it does all come down to that doesn't it? WOW! and WOE! and SELAH! and AMEN!

I'm reading a new book our Pastor gave to us - Trusting God even when it hurts by Jerry Bridges. Awesome book so far! I read another book of his called Respectable Sins and that was a true blessing as well. I used it for my teen bible study for a few months. They truly understood its message as they live with them daily at their ages.

FYI - Maria's children went NUTS over their dolls. They took video of it for us. I'll send it to you once I get it!

Love and hugs - Jill
PS Did you email Scott yet? He is happy to help in any way he can!

Praise God for the ministry you have in sharing his word. I will pray that He guides you and helps you as you expand your team of helpers to fill your orders.
