the Speak Louder Project- Shoe Shopping!!

Last Thursday I met my friend Becca at Journeys here in San Antonio, to purchase 35 pairs of shoes for the Speak Louder Project- Easter Shoe Donations.

Becca was able to get me connected with the manager Josh.

Josh was amazing! Such a nice guy! He made sure we were well taken care of at both "Journeys Kids" and "Journeys"

With his and Becca's help we were able to pick out a different pair for each kid...Since the ages ranged from 6 months to 19 years old, this was a challenge.... but a fun one!!

Everything from Polo, Vans, Sketchers, Adidas, Converse, Ethnies, DC, and Pastry.

It was so much fun to shop for these kids! I could not have done it without Becca, she was so helpful.

Especially since I had two of my little shopping buddies with me...

And it was hard to keep this one on track...

she inherited her mama's shoppin gene.

Focus Bella Focus!

2 hours and 35 pairs of shoes later....

We loaded them into the car

Ready to be taken to the kids at Agora

SO exciting!!!
Have I mentioned how thankful I am to YOU for making this happen!?

Next, the best part....the delivery!! My life, my vision...will never be the same!

P.S---are you in a rut? Feeling sorry for yourself? Feeling a little self critical...or just a little grouchy? Look for something you can do for someone else today! Place your focus outward and see how your day will turn around! There is no way you can be in a bad mood when you're doing for someone else!!

  1. I'd just like to say how very encouraged I am when I read your blog. Our families seem very similar - three little ones, a heart for helping others, a mamma that gets tired but is oh so thankful for the here and now. Life full of messes and grace and love. If our paths crossed I think we'd be great friends. Thank you for sharing your heart and for somehow speaking to mine.
