Esther Grace

Kristin is at it again. I have literally been stalking my friend Rebecca's blog and hanging on every word. She is in Ethiopia with her hubby, one son and Kristin to pick up her daughter. This beautiful child has captured my heart. I am so full as one more orphan has found their place, their home.........are you being called to open your heart and home????

Sorry for posting here but I couldn't find another way to contact you.

Would you be interested in participating in a blog tour to help promote a newly released inspirational book for Christian parents? One Million Arrows: Raising Your Children to Change the World is a newly released inspirational and visionary book for Christian parents. Through moving testimonies of young people and families worldwide who are making significant impact, OMA shows parents what's possible when they disciple their children and use their family's God-given talents and resources to engage in the Great Commission. A big emphasis is on investing as a family in the ministry to orphans.

What’s in it for you?

•A highly inspirational book recommended and endorsed by some of America’s top spiritual leaders such as Josh McDowell, Franklin Graham, Dennis Rainey, Ron Luce, Thelma Wells, and many others.
•The chance to help promote sales of a book where 100% of profits benefit orphans, including orphans in Haiti (we are personally vested in orphan work there)!
•A GREAT GIVE-AWAY with gift certificates from Amazon, free books, and paper bead necklaces from Uganda from one of our featured “arrow” orphans.
•The chance to encourage your readers with a great message for raising world-changers!

If you would like to participate, please reply asap and I’ll send your free review copy. The blog tour is scheduled for the week of March 1 (post whenever convenient for you) and I have made participation super easy—everything you need to post will be provided at: By following this link, you can also find all the details, including the current list of more than 50 successful bloggers already signed up for this tour, the list of prizes, and complete instructions.

Thanks so much for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
