Today I have to share with you a book called ‘The Woman Who Loved Shoe Boxes: Thinking Inside The Box’ by Peg Stormy Bradley. I found it while looking for ideas for today’s post. I just had to share it with y’all! 🙂
I didn’t know that there was a book like this out there. This book was published in 2017, so it’s been around for a little while. But it is still relevant today! That’s what so cool about Operation Christmas Child. They still have the same goal as when they started, reaching others for the Lord. Also, helping them with needs that need to be met. This book is all about OCC and written for kids. Here is the back cover for y’all to read.
“What could a person give to a child who has lost everything? The answer is a shoe box. An organization called “Samaritan’s Purse” has a project called “Operation Christmas Child.” Samaritan’s Purse collects shoe boxes filled with toys and other items, and they distribute those boxes all over the world to children who are either very poor or who have lived through tornadoes, earthquakes, fires, or other tragedies. For the children receiving the shoeboxes, it might be the only Christmas present they’ll receive. If you have some time and a desire to fill a shoe box with toys, books, and other items that children love, you can be a blessing to a child somewhere in the world. I know a woman who has been a blessing to many. This book is about that lady.” (https://redemption-press.com)
You can order this book on Redemption Press or at Walmart.com. It’s a short book only twenty-eight pages but I think that it is worth getting. I think I’ll order it and share with my Little Niece as she grows up. 🙂
