Mother’s Day Baby Bottle Change Drive Kick-off

Yesterday was Mother’s Day!  My husband took our family to First Baptist Atlanta to hear Dr. Charles Stanley preach per my request.  It was a wonderful sermon about raising children, and was such a blessing to hear.  He touched on points such as, even if they do not quite understand it, children need to be taught in truth at a very young age, and some of the problems in today’s society have resulted because children of our time have never really experienced need.  He stated that if children never experience need, it is difficult for them to understand that they need God.

Also, Mother’s Day kicked off the Baby Bottle Change Drive taking place in most Crisis Pregnancy Centers in our area.  We are filling up baby bottles full of change, bills, and even checks to donate to the centers.  This fundraiser is running from Mother’s Day until Father’s Day.

caabBaby-Bottle-by-Grace Why not take a moment and check with your local center to see if they are offering this fundraiser as well?  If they are not participating, donations of any kind are appreciated year round.  Helping these little children and their mothers is truly rewarding.

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Since you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me.

Matthew 25:40

What we do “to the least of these” parallels what we have done for Jesus.  What a perspective!  Let’s keep pressing forward doing for others as we would do unto Christ.

So let’s not get tired of doing what is good.  At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.

Galatians 6:9 (NLT)

Be blessed!

    Love the idea about wearing the tanks backwards. It never occurred to me! I live in Southern Indiana and our church is participating in the baby bottle drive for our local pregnancy care center. In fact, we didn’t have enough bottles as some wanted more than one! We are going to contact our local center for a few more. Thanks again for the post. God bless!

      Thank you Beth! How wonderful that more bottles are needed. Our family is attempting to fill several as well!

  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours
    would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  3. I’m not certain the place you’re getting your information, but great topic. I needs to spend some time finding out more or figuring out more. Thank you for fantastic info I was on the lookout for this info for my mission.

  4. Sounds like you had a lovely mother’s day. I’m glad to hear about the baby bottle funds for the crisis pregnancy center. May 11th we had the Hike for life.

  5. Hello! I am the Director for a pregnancy center in Kerman, CA. We had our Baby Bottle campaign this year as well. Thank you for highlighting this wonderful opportunity to give! God bless your family.
