This summer the kids and I undertook to trace and cut shoes from old blue jeans. We partnered with Sole Hope. The shoes will be sent to Uganda to create employment for widows. They assemble them for a fair wage and then the shoes are given to kids that have none. Why are closed shoes so important? Well, just watch this.
And here is the story that founded Sole Hope.

While busy being a shoemaker's elf, my eight year old daughter so sweetly said, "I will never grow tired as long as I know I am helping someone." May that spur you on to cut some gospel shoes as well. Without the cost of a plane ticket, your faith can walk on a different continent.
You are not here by mistake. I am the girl who was named "God is Gracious", and I am learning just how true that is. Welcome to my inside out world where being a follower of Jesus Christ, I see His story beautifully rewriting my own. I am married to my best friend and have a quiver of precious children.
