Maddix's Big Idea

This year, Maddix decided that for her fifth birthday, instead of asking for presents, this was her birthday wish: "I would like to raise money for turkeys so I can give them to people who don't have turkeys for Thanksgiving." Seriously? This girl is awesome. Click HERE to watch Maddix's video. Her parents, my friends Nathan and Jade, have really done a great job of teaching Maddix about loving, giving, and being like Jesus.

Maddix's updated total: $958.19 for turkeys AND fixin’s!!! She alone has raised enough to feed the fifty families that will be attending our church's Thanksgiving service, and she isn't even finished. Tonight between 5 and 9, our local Moe's is giving 20% of their profit to Maddix's cause.
Sunday morning, alongside almost 15 others at our church, Maddix gave a cardboard testimony to testify of God's incredible goodness and provision. Our church is proud of that little girl, and we should be!


God is using this little girl in a big way.
Will you let Him use you?

Bless her sweet little heart - what an awesome idea and a great way to meet a need.
I am challenged - faith without deeds is dead.
Happy weekend and tell little Maddix, Happy Birthday!
