Laura Story - Blessings

I saw this beautiful video/song in one of my favorite blogs, and I just had to share it. It is a wonderful reminder that God is in control of everything and we must trust Him.

FREE Giveaway Handmade boy doll

This is my version of a boy doll.  I'm still working on perfecting him. But just like in real life, my dolls will be a work in progress.  I put the bible verse on the front of the doll this time.  It is "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."  Romas 15:13

Do you like the doll?  If you have a child or you know of a child that would love this doll, leave me a comment and I will raffle it off.  Tell me what is your favorite bible verse.

Here is "Joshua" with "Cassie" hanging out together.  Cassie will be staying with us.  Joshua is ready to be loved by a special little boy or girl.

Handmade doll to spread God's word

Recently, I have been thinking a lot about how I can use the gifts God has given me to share His word.  There are many wonderful websites/blogs that showcase many handmade items and since I love to sew, I decided to make handmade dolls with bible verses on them.  This is not my original idea.  I want to give credit to an awesome blog that has beautiful handmade dolls with bible verses.  I also want to be able to minister to children and share God's promises and encouragement.  My doll is certainly not perfect and still needs a lot of work.  My doll is made from different patterns I have put together to make it my own. 

Here is the back of the doll.  I am not sure if I will keep the verses in the back or move to the front.  I'm still experimenting.  I was planning on giving this doll away, but somehow I got a little attached.  Besides, her stitches are not perfect and although it is handmade, I want to make sure it will be loved by a little girl or boy.
