So, as they began selling candy canes, I began to think, “OK, maybe we can cover about 20 boxes or so. That would be great.” But, that was not Nolan’s goal. You see, Nolan had a God-sized goal – he wanted to send 100 shoeboxes!
Cute, Nolan. That’s really cute. But, 100? That’s not realistic!
Within 2 weeks of selling candy canes, Brylee and Nolan had raised over $800! Not only that, we had others donating to help them reach their goal.

And as 100 children get to hear about Jesus this year, God used my children to remind me of something. When I have faith like a child coupled with a God-sized goal, He will ALWAYS come through and Jesus WILL BE exalted. The question is…do I have faith like a child? And, does my vision line up with God’s vision?
Thank you, God for using my children to remind me of your power this year. May you use the 100 shoeboxes to make much of Your Name!
