November’s Making the Days Count Activity Calendar

November’s Making the Days Count

Activity Calendar

Another month of wonderful opportunities to create some fun memories with your children!  Choose a few and make your days count!

I have a couple of special prayer requests relating to this month.

November is National Adoption Month.  As you probably know, the Brainerd family–owners of Homeschool Share–are trying to adopt a sibling set from Colombia.  Please pray for their adoption journey and their future children.  If you’re able, please help their current adoption fundraising efforts by purchasing a bag of coffee beans either for yourself or as a gift for someone you know.

On November 8 in 1922, surgeon Christiaan Barnard was born.  In 1967, he and his team would perform the first human heart transplant.  What does this have to do with my second request?  Well, one sweet little 9 year old girl I’ve met has already benefited once from Dr. Barnard’s pioneering work.  However, that heart got damaged by illness, and now Maxine is awaiting a new heart.  I’m asking y’all pray for her, the wait, the surgery, and the recovery.   You can read Maxi’s story on her Facebook page Maxi Needs A New Heart.

And on behalf of everyone at Homeschool Share, may you and your family have a very blessed Thanksgiving!
