40 day fast

I have the honor and priviledge to participate tomorrow in the 40 day fast

My teammate for the day is Nancy

What an amazing process. Due to a crazy schedule tomorrow. I am fasting from a few things. Reality TV, (this is a big one for me) and dessert. I will be at the hospital tomorrow with my husband and am not able to skip breakfast or lunch.

I am going to be fasting for not just my husband but Kiva!

KIVA lets you lend to a specific entrepreneur in the developing world- empowering them to lift themselves out of poverty. Kiva is the world's first person-to-person micro-lending website, empowering individuals to lend directly to unique entrepreneurs in the developing world. It's loans that change lives!

I love this quote by Anne Frank : No one has ever become poor by giving.

My daughter had the chance to see Casting Crowns this weekend in Spokane and they showcased this song, which always touches my heart.

I'll be praying for you today, and for your husband, as well. Kiva is a great group - thanks for talking about them and being part of the 40 Day Fast!
