A Pillow For Dad! (Sunday is Father’s Day!)

Here’s a cool pillow for dad.  Don’t forget that Sunday is Father’s Day.  Pick up this pillow at our auction and purchase a gift card from Lowe’s or his favorite restaurant and tuck it in the pocket.  This pillow is made from a man’s shirt front with the buttons and pocket.  On the back is colorful tie.  You and your dad can help a child join his forever family here.

The Caster Family

SS Caster

The 2016 Sacred Selections Memphis family is the Caster family.  Trey and Allison are parents to three beautiful children – Tessa is 5, Crew is 3, and Holly is 1.  The whole family is excited to add a new baby to the family.

Trey and Allison met at the Florida College camp in Arkansas 11 years ago and became good friends before they started dating.  Trey is a mechanical engineer and Allison uses her early childhood education degree everyday in teaching her children. They are active in their local congregation where Trey serves as a deacon and Allison teaches children’s Bible classes.

Join us Saturday, June 18th at 5 PM and meet the Caster family and help them bring home their new baby later this year.  http://www.ssbartlett.org/registration-form/


Love Your Neighbor

ss15 Tarmann children

“Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widow in their distress…”

The Christian religion is based on two great commandments: Love the Lord with all the heart, soul, strength, and mind, and to love our neighbor as ourselves. Jesus taught in conjunction with this the credited ‘Golden rule’: Do to others what you would want done to you. And so – if the Christian truly wants to be adopted into the family of God as per Galatians 4, then they will indeed not spurn the opportunity to provide for others, especially orphans in need of a father and mother. We all serve in different ways. With some it is financial benevolence; with some it is skills of management; with others it is encouragement. Search your own heart and skill set in order to apply James’ great exhortation to help the child in distress. (Borrowed from Jeremy Dehut, SS Birmingham)

Thanks for following our blog!

Just checked our stats and we have 1,117 subscribers to this blog.  We want to thank all of you for caring about children and for supporting adoption through Sacred Selections.  I was thinking that if each of our subscribers donated just $10, we would have over $11,000 for baby Lorelei Hope’s adoption expenses.

Go to the Donations tab in the menu above and then go to the bottom of the post about Auction Donations to find the link for monetary donations.  Whatever you give will make a difference to a child and a family. Thank you for caring!

A couple of weeks ago we posted an auction item that had come in.  It is an angel figurine that is titled: Hope. And it is part of a series of figure in the Journey of Grace.  How perfect is that?  Come out and meet Miss Lorelei Hope and her parents and bid on the perfect item to help you remember this special night of Hope.
