We've been grinding our own wheat now for over two years. Jen loves baking with it, and we love enjoying the fruit of her labors. She is a phenomenal cook. Our house has become a virtual white flour free zone!
Back in May, Jen was talking with some close friends about the adoption and different fund raising ideas. One of them suggested that she needed a divinely inspired idea for fund raising and that they should commit to prayer.
A few weeks later, Jen had the idea to sell her homemade, whole wheat baked goods online. Since then, we have been working on finishing all the paperwork for the home study and just simply trying to live life. With the holidays behind us,paperwork done and money due, God saw fit for this to be the time.
So we've opened an Etsy store. We are currently only selling cookies, but will soon add french bread. If you type in the above address it will take you right to the store.
We will be keeping everyone updated on future fund raisers. On April 7th Jen will be hosting a Pampered Chef Fundraiser Show. We will make a percentage of the total sales. If anyone is interested in putting in an order feel free to contact us, even if you don't live in the area.
Also, over the past several weeks we have received two $50 checks towards the adoption. We feel that this is God's way of encouraging us that He IS going to provide. We are thanking Him through every step!
