Compassion & Show Hope

Jesse and I believe giving is not only imperative but it also brings us great joy!

Back when Jesse was unemployed in 2008, we decided to support a child through Compassion International after reading a fellow blogger’s account of traveling to Uganda. We’ve enjoyed including our children in our giving and we feel privileged to continue supporting Compassion with the profits from my book.

In September of 2010, I read Choosing to SEE by Mary Beth Chapman and was forever changed. After reading that book, Jesse and I decided to extend our giving to Show Hope.

We truly feel honored to partner with both of these excellent organizations by giving a portion of the income from blog advertising sales to them each year. You can read more about each organization below.

Compassion International exists as a Christian child advocacy ministry that releases children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty and enables them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.

Founded by the Rev. Everett Swanson in 1952, Compassion began providing Korean War orphans with food, shelter, education and health care, as well as Christian training. Today, Compassion helps more than 1 million children in 26 countries.


Show Hope is a ministry that enables individuals and communities to change the world for orphans by not only addressing a child’s need for food, shelter, care, and spiritual nourishment, but by also addressing the root issue for an orphan: the lack of a family.

They are a non-profit organization that mobilizes individuals and communities to meet the most pressing needs of orphans in distress by providing 1) homes for waiting children through adoption aid grants, and 2) life-saving medical care for orphans with special needs.
