Story of Giving

On March 4, 2018, two events took place that brought both happiness and sadness to our family. In the morning, we received a blank check to be used to bring a blessing to someone or some organization in need. In the evening, we learned that a 135 year old, rural Minnesota Lutheran church burned to […]

“$500. PLUS… OUr family was so surprised by the Big Reveal! God already knew and prepared us for the people we were to give that check to: I was blessed to be invited with a group of lady friends to write scripture on the framing of Emily’s Place newest house – to bless the women […]

Our family was delighted to present the check we received through PMLC to the Mckinney Food Pantry. We matched the $250 check to provide the pantry with total of $500. Not only did we have the privilege to make an impact through our donation, but our family was also able to participate in a service […]

Story of Giving

“We chose to donate to two North Texas public schools through the Donorschoose.org site. This site supports classroom needs of children all over the country. 100% of the donation goes directly to the classroom.

God’ s timing was perfect! We held onto our check until a few days ago as we prayed for God to guide us. Although some options came up, they just didn’t feel right. Then a friend shared that she had recently invited a long time friend and her 7 children to move in with her […]

We drew a $500.00 check. We learned what it is like to be a steward of money as we did not want to give it to the first thought that came to mind rather we prayed daily as to what does God want us to do with this great gift. While at church I wasn’t […]

Story of Giving

“When we received this check of $500, we knew it was a big responsibility to do the best we could with this unexpected blessing. But what was the “”right”” thing? So, we left the envelope on the counter where we could see it each day, think about it each day and pray about it each […]

Story of Giving

God is amazing. You’d think when you’re given an envelope with a check in it, you’d rip it open right away. Strange that without talking about it, our family brought the check home and opened it together in the kitchen. There was a reverence to this unlike giving our own money. We know that all […]
