Reminder: Free Usborne Shipping Credit + Profits to Voice of the Martyrs

Just a reminder that through tomorrow you can shop through my Usborne Crazy site and get a FREE shipping credit (in the form of a reimbursement check).  Also, I've been moved to give any profits left (after the credits) to The Voice of the Martyrs.

If you are not familiar with The Voice of the Martyrs, they provide relief and help for persecuted Christians.  In January, the girls found a newsletter I had received with a photo of a woman whose face was badly burned during an attack.  While I would normally not show them such a graphic image, they were deeply moved by it and wondered how we could help (it also allowed us to have some really great conversation).  Anyway, this month, the newsletter gave us a way to encourage the woman by drawing her pictures and writing letters, so we decided to do it!

If you have older children (ages 5-13), there is a special online newsletter that shares about the persecuted church on a more "age-appropriate" level called Kids of Courage.
