Coupons for the Community
This blog is for showing the goods gotten for free (or really cheap) using coupons that were provided by friends and family. These goods are then distributed to people in our community to whom I feel God has called me to serve for one reason or another. I am not a writer of any sort, a super couponer, or a very good blogger. I am just a child of God trying to follow what I believe He has called me to do. Whatever God has put on my heart on a certain day is what comes out in a post, so I hope it makes some sense and is not offensive or scrambled. If it is, it is only because I am a work in progress. Love to all, In His Name.

For I know the Plans I Have For You (Jer 29:11)
At first, all of the "goods" were placed down in the basement of Discovery Fellowship, but our church doesn't have much room and we have no idea where God is taking this ministry. How much will be provided? How often will it be circulated out? How big will this ministry opportunity get? So, I brought everything back home and decided just to bring it all in bins to the church every week or every other week (when my hubby is conveniently off of work) and those who need stuff can come back by the nursery and grab whatever they want during either service or between services on Sundays. It ended up working out that everything was at my house, because the week I brought everything back home, five families came and took boxes full of toiletries, etc. that would help them through the summer. Not only that, but I met a great girl whose husband is in Iraq and, after bringing her a box of stuff, she mentioned a few other military families who could use a little extra help. She also wants to send some male products overseas, as I get a ton of free men's bodywash and was wondering where I was going to send it all. And yes, all of the items here were FREE USING COUPONS!!!!
