Jordin Sparks Brings Songs, Smiles and Teddy Bears to Houston

This month we celebrated 10 years of the Jordin Sparks Experience at the Super Bowl in Houston.  It was amazing!  The best part were the three Teddy Bear Picnics that we held during the week.  The photos and videos speak for themselves.

We all hung out with the kids making Valentines, eating pizza, playing basketball and racing outside and at each one she presented the bears with an inspirational message and sang songs.  It was super encouraging for everyone there…even the grown ups!

If this doesn’t warm your heart, we don’t know what else will!  Check out all the smiles that were created!

Orphanage Check-in

We checked in with Pringle Children’s Home this summer.  We love this place and support where we can!  They are doing an amazing job with the children there.  You know, most people, when they think of Jamaica they think of resorts, vacations, and palm trees.  This is a developing country.  The needs are great.  The people are wonderful and gracious.  We encourage all of you to go to a 3rd world country and get off the beaten path.  It will change your perspective and you will leave grateful.  If you’d like to help us support this orphanage by making a donation we can assure you that it would be greatly appreciated!

We also checked out a school that is doing wonderful work who has some serious needs.  Their library was eaten by termites and they have no books.  We’d love to help out in that area. 🙂
