blood:water belt

Now let me tell you about this belt.

Recently I became a member of a community of folks who are reading David Platt's Radical. Together we read the text, blog/facebook/tweet/journal about our thoughts, and process the challenges and convictions we encounter along the way. Aside from the totally awesome things that God is doing in my heart and soul as a result of this book, Radical has also allowed me to interact with amazing people around the globe who are also on this journey.

Amy is one of those people. Amy's first response to reading Chapter One of Radical was HUGE! She was really kicking herself for spending $28 on this adorable belt from Anthropologie, and as her creative juices flowed, she came up with a life-changing idea.

In an effort to save lives in Africa, sisters can "buy" the belt by donating to blood:water mission. By donating, you will receive the belt and then you can wear it before sending it on to the next sister. Already the belt has raised hundreds of dollars for blood:water mission.


And it's not too late to join the sisterhood of the traveling belt. Check this out for more information.

It is an honor, privilege and blessing to be part of this sisterhood. Thank you, Amy, for this wonderful opportunity. And thank you to all the beautiful sisters who are rockin' the blood:water belt in an effort to save lives.

Hi. My name is Ali.

And I used to blog here.

And then life happened and my hard drive crashed and because I simply couldn't take it anymore, I said screw it.

So, yeah. It's been a while. And I missed you.

Yes, even you.

And in case you actually care what I've been up to . . .

Well, for starters, I've been nose-deep in the Radical revolution, and I can't wait to tell you what that has to do with this rockin' belt!

Oh, and see this precious trio? Well, we play school one morning a week, and it's basically awesome. More on that later.

And remember when I asked you to guess what the heck we were doing in our basement? Well, here's a sneak peek. And don't worry. I'll post more pictures as soon as we take them. Remember, MY HARD DRIVE CRASHED.

Finally, the last couple of weeks have been busy and blessed because I have spent nearly every waking moment with these two unbelievably precious babies.
And because they are as darling as they look, it's been a fantabulous couple of weeks (minus a couple mental breakdowns - I can't help it that I'm human).

Thanks for sticking around.

And don't go far. I'll be back soon.
