A Bible-Thumping Do-Gooder Rescue Tribe

I started thinking about creating The Gospel Mom when I was in a situation where I desperately wanted someone to preach the gospel to me and it didn't seem like anyone knew how to. I wanted to start a tribe of people, a village that was encouraging and lifting up the fellow members with Christ. Of course we know that the religion Jesus loves is one that cares for the orphan and the widow. How can we do that? In the spring, some friends and our family had a worship night and raised money for an adoption. All I could think of is that I wanted to do more. I wanted to rescue more babies. 

John Piper is quoted as saying that adoption is the visible gospel.

So we invite people into our family. We open up core places in our lives. We set extra places at our tables. What else can we do? Well, our hope is to start a Bible-thumping do-gooder tribe of rescuers. A village on a mission. A reconnaissance team. We will find out what the enemy is doing and we will aid in rescue efforts. 

Y'all, I want to help Matt and Erin adopt. I am asking for you to shop my Etsy store for your Christmas presents and I am going to give them at least 10% of the profits. All of the profits go to ministry, but these are designated just for them.

Would you like to join my Bible-thumping do-gooder tribe of rescuers? 
All you have to do is shop, spread the word, and pray wild prayers. Pray for the salvation of their child. Pray for their finances. Pray for every need they may have. As it is in heaven, let it be one earth. 
Redeemed. Rescued. Ransomed.
Family.

Purchase with purpose. Shop to adopt.
