Fundraiser

Libby, Justin, and Ava
This is a post to introduce you to a beautiful Etsy shop, but to also promote a fundraiser for a beautiful person.

I have posted about Libby in the past, but I have some new followers who may not have heard of her yet. Libby and I went to the same college and had mutual friends. We had gone on a Young Life Spring Break trip together one year and I really got to know her more.

Last July Libby found out that she has cancer. She started writing a blog about her journey, and to tell her story. She is married and has a one year old, Ava. Libby has an amazing faith and tells it like it is. Her story has inspired me and challenged me to grow deeper in my own faith journey. You can read all about her story here: www.libbyryder.blogspot.com

Now, to share the Etsy shop.  A book club in Virginia (where Libby, Justin, and Ava live) is raising money for their family.  The woman who owns this shop has already discounted her items, is offering another 15% off with the promo code LIBBY15, and half of the money raised will go to Libby and her family.  This shop has gorgeous jewelry.  Go here to check it out.  I just bought myself this and I can't wait to get it!
<3 it!
What a great way to help someone out AND get something really beautiful.  I ask for prayers for Libby and her family.  She has only two more chemo sessions left!  She is an amazing person with quite the story.
