Close to My Heart
March 30, 2013
Jewelry making is certainly a passion of mine.
But not the only one.
I’ve been a supporter and volunteer with
Amor Ministries for a long time. We’ve been on many house builds in some of the poorest neighborhoods of Tijuana
and once at the San Carlos Apache Reservation near Globe, Arizona.
This faith-based non-profit has been working to provide housing for the neediest families for over 25 years.
Next week, my husband and I will be part of a team of adults and youth that will build a house in four days
for the Cardenas Faria family, a husband, wife, and their four children.
The father works as a mason’s assistant and makes $83 a week.
They currently live in a one room house made out of used lumber,
bad roof, no electricity, no drinkable water, no propane…
For $100, the family can receive a water purification system that will provide them
with 1,000,000 gallons of clean water. That’s enough for their family for life!
I created a line of jewelry a while back to support the purchase of this amazing gift to the families.
Pure Water Designs
I chose the small opalite briolette drops for these designs
because they look so much like perfectly pure water droplets.
And now, with my new easy shop, it’s available for purchase to a wider audience.
100 percent of the profit goes to this water purification program.
These pieces are currently available in my
If you’d like to buy a little jewelry and support this venture,
I will be meeting a family soon who would be very grateful for this gift of clean water.
Tomorrow, Christians around the world join together with joyous shouts…
He is risen! He is risen, indeed!
Wishing you all a joyous Easter,
