  • Genesis 8:22

    In Genesis 8:22, God said, “For as long as Earth lasts, planting and harvest, cold and heat, Summer and winter, day and night will never stop.” For many of us, this is a very important text.    We are 6 days past the official start of spring and we got two inches of snow today, the wind-chill is currently 10 degrees and the air temperature tonight is supposed to be in the neighborhood of 10 degrees.    Yes, eventually, winter will stop.    And then what? &...

  • Frozen Turf and Boxes of Diapers

    I've had a couple of people ask me lately about how we're coming on the artificial turf and the diapers that we are going to be sending from Michigan down to GLA. I mean, after all, the turf for the playground is a crucial part of getting the big kids up to Ft. Jacques.

  • Legacy Makes a Lasting Impression

    It all started with a Mom adopting a baby.   Oh yeah, and that baby came home from Haiti right after the earthquake.   But that's a whole different story.

  • Why I Won't Be Giving Up Facebook for Lent

    My Facebook feed has been full of people who are saying, "See you after Easter" because they are giving up Facebook for Lent.   Apparently they feel that cutting off communication with some of their friends will help them feel closer to God during the preparations for Good Friday and Easter.  I don't necessarily agree.

  • Multiply the Difference

    So, as we continue the challenge to collect enough diapers and funds to be able to send the artificial turf and diapers down to Haiti (as soon as snow melts in Michigan - hopefully!), this week's challenge has to do with multiplying the efforts. How?   It's very simple.

  • Frozen But Making A Difference

    And no I'm not talking about the movie, Frozen.   I'm talking about the artificial turf that is going to go on the playground at the new facilities up at Ft. Jacques.

  • On and on.....

    Last Saturday, I wrote about the first week's challenge for the efforts for the kids at GLA.   You can read it at Every Act of Love.    Then on Monday, Dixie wrote about how we really need your help to care for the kids.

  • Amazing Diaper Race - Plan B

    If you go back and read Taking Risks, you'll remember that I was stepping out and proposing an idea that might or might not work.   It's something we've never done before. If you go and read The Amazing Diaper Race, you can read the idea that I had and laid out there.

  • Not the Future - The Now!

    Last Friday, I had the opportunity to talk to 400 kids (and their teachers) who believe very strongly in the now - and aren't waiting for the future. What do I mean by that?   I mean that they are busy, as they live life in school, but they aren't waiting for the future.

  • A Tale of Two Coverings

    In this post, I'm going to attempt to answer a collection of random questions that I've gotten about our effort for two coverings (turf and diapers).    So, in random order: Why do you need artificial turf?   It has to do with two words - skinned knees.

  • How do you sign up for the Amazing Diaper Race?

    One of our goals in the Amazing Diaper Race is to get kids involved.    Lots of kids.   Because I firmly believe that the more kids we get involved in caring about and for the kids at GLA, the better that we'll all be.

  • Goals and Rules for the Amazing Diaper Race

    What are we hoping to accomplish in the Amazing Diaper Race? Help GLA by getting a LOT of diapers donated so that they (we) don't have to buy them. Fill the container that is going down to Haiti from Michigan with 500 boxes of diapers - current count is just over 470 boxes to go yet.

  • What Can You Expect from the Amazing Diaper Race?

    What can you expect? First, we won't ask you to do anything embarrassing - like.....  Well, I think you know what I mean. Secondly - the Race will last 6 weeks - and each Saturday, the teams will get their "mission" for the following week.   The mission will involve submitting some sort of video, photo or written evidence that they have completed their mission and they will need to by the following Friday at midnight (EST).

  • The Amazing Diaper Race!!?!!

    The what?  Yep, the Amazing Diaper Race.    What - a 6 week contest where teams from all over the world complete a weekly mission that will help us reach the goal of getting 500 boxes of diapers and the artificial turf down to God's Littlest Angels where they can benefit the kids.

  • Taking Risks

    I've heard it said before that if you don't ever fail, that means you're not taking enough risks.   I think it was pertaining to the fact that one of the "home run kings" in baseball was also the strikeout leader.   So he was the leader in succeeding and the leader in a certain type of failure.

  • A Trip to the Store

    I had a breakfast meeting with a friend of mine yesterday.    We're working on some things that will introduce the possibility of giving through estate planning and the difference that could make for GLA.   I will keep you informed as things progress on that - if you want to talk about it in the mean time, let me know.

  • Grass and Diapers - Questions Answered......

    I've had a couple of questions that people have asked lately so I thought I would answer them for everyone to read.  Here goes: Where do we send the diapers or gift cards?   To Colorado like usual?

  • 500 Boxes of Diapers?

    Last Friday, I wrote that we're going to be filling a container in Michigan - with artificial grass and with diapers.   You can read about it at Talking About Diapers. So, how do we get 500 boxes of diapers to my office in Michigan?

  • Talking About Diapers

    So, today, I want to talk about diapers.    Yeah, diapers.  They smell good before they go on but afterwards......

  • Diapers and Grass?

    Diapers and grass?  How are we going to change the world for the kids at GLA through diapers and grass? Two ways.....
