My heart is leading me back......

I am sure you probably guessed it from my title that I am going back to New Hope!!!! I am super excited and I seem to be sticking with my every other year pattern for my trips. This trip will be similar to my last one as I will be staying for about 2 months at New Hope working in the preschool and where ever I am needed around the house. The wonderful Becca Shook who is currently there as the preschool teacher is pregnant and due the end of June!!! I am thrilled for her and Mikey and I am so happy that I will be able to meet baby Shook! So I will be heading over the beginning of July sometime......this will allow Becca to settle into motherhood without having to worry about preschool. I am super excited because I love the preschool and I am already on Pintrest thinking of all the fun crafts that we are going to make!

On the fundraising side of things I am still working on how much I am going to need to fundraise. The biggest part of my trip cost will be my plane ticket and visa fees. I am predicting that I will need to raise around $4000-4500.  I have planned that all of my Jamberry parties sales,  that are not already designated as adoption fundraisers, will go directly to my trip cost. Please let me know if you would be interested in booking a party. www.cutenails4acause.jamberrynails.net :) For the past 2 years my family has been using doTERRA essential oils. About 6 months ago, I followed in my momma's footsteps and became wellness advocate as well.  I am still in the beginning stages of building my team but al my commissions that come in from doTERRA are going straight towards my trip. www.mydoterra.com/stephanieelizabeth/ or you can find me on FB at www.facebook.com/theoilbug With living in a new place I am also trying to build up babysitting jobs and I am hoping to do a few photography fundraisers for my trip as well. www.facebook.com/stephanieelizabethphotography

As you can see I am fired up and trusting the Lord to bring everything that is needed in just in the right timing.

Thank you all for your love and support
