Send a card to Emma

My heart is breaking.

When I had the honor of meeting Especially Heather last year and going to She Speaks with her, I would just sit and look at her in awe. She, herself had been through so much. I don’t think it ever registered with me just how much she’s been through with Emma. And still going through.

Emma recently had been in the hospital for 6 weeks, able to go home but then started having seizures. She’s back in the hospital again. You can read updates on Heather’s site to keep up with things there or look at Heather’s Twitter page. You can also make donations to Emma’s hospital fund on Heather’s site.

One of the most important things we can do is pray. Pray for Emma. Pray for Heather. Pray for their family. Pray for the doctors and nurses.

The next thing we can do is to let Heather know we’re praying for them. The ladies at DaySpring have made it possible for me to send a gift basket of cards, but I need your help!

1. Go to and make a card. There are suggested sections, but you can choose any card that you feel expresses your heart. You can change the text on many of the cards to fit this situation. You can also add your own text, pictures, clipart or message.

Please be creative in this. Draw signs that say you’re praying for Emma and take a picture to put on the card. Write her name in the sand if you’re near the beach and take a picture. Personalize these cards to the max! I know you can!

2. At checkout, use the promo code: GCHEATHERAPR13. The checkout will show a $2.99 charge but the promo code will cancel that out. There is no charge for Studio DaySpring printing this card and sending the basket. I hope you will let @incourage know how much you appreciate their love and willingness to set this up for Heather. You do not have to put in an address for shipping — the promo code will group all the cards together for the basket.

** Edited to add** You will need to put in your address in the Recipient’s screen. The system will not let you pass that screen unless you put something in there. The promo code will gather all the cards into the same basket.

Please save your design. Take a minute and create an account to save your design. There have been people who have submitted cards that I’ve found out are not showing up in the system. Please let me know that you have created a card so I can make sure it went through the system correctly and shows up in the basket! Either leave me a comment here or email me.

3. All cards must be designed and submitted by April 13th!

4. Come back here and leave a comment telling me you’ve submitted a card. I’ll enter you for a drawing for Sheila Walsh’s new book “Get Off Your Knees & Pray.” I’ll close the drawing April 13th and choose the winner the next day.

Help me spread the word. Submit a card or two. I would love for Heather and her family to get this basket and be able to wallpaper the hospital room with beautiful cards from all of you.

This is a new system for Studio DaySpring. Please email me and let me know if you have any problems whatsoever creating the card you want or if you have questions. I’ll me more than happy to find out answers.

Women of Faith Week: Day 6 & 7

Ok, so yesterday I said that it was the last day — well, I was wrong. The wonderful Molly Thornberg (who I met on Twitter — and she tweets for Women of Faith) thought it was a really cool thing for me to do this WoF Week. So she gave me some stuff to give away. Only when I went to pick it up tonight, I found out she gave me 2 of everything she told me she was giving me. How awesome is that?

I get to draw 2 names from the comments here and I’m going to leave this post up for a few extra days. I think I’ll draw the winners on Wednesday. Here’s the awesome package!
