Happy Easter!

He’s Risen!

Become an Organ Donor!

Promote Autism Awareness!

That’s right, it’s all landing in April!  And I’m doing what I can to shed some light on all of the above. 1st I’d have to say Happy Easter to everyone! The true meaning for me is the glorious miracle that took place as my Lord Jesus Christ rose from an empty grave!  He defied the impossible.

Now I digress to the colored eggs & silliness. I had fun with my previous post in hosting an egg hunt with my Etsy Shop. Congrats to Jeannie McCoy, Sara Haux, Emily Taylor, Mary Davis, Karrie Kalmes, & Jackie Payne who were all winners in my contest! I haven’t changed the pictures back, so if you would still like to get in on some prizes feel free to join the hunt by reading my previous post here.

Also, April is Organ Donation Awareness month. And since my daughter was given a second chance at life by an unknown precious family in their time of tragic grief, this is close to my heart. Please consider becoming an organ donor. Many people believe that just signing the back of your license is enough. But it’s not true in many cases. So register on a national level by clicking here. And most importantly make sure your friends and family are ALL aware of your decision.

Lastly, but surely not least – Autism Awareness!  April is the time to bring this cause to the surface of our minds. 1 of every 88 children are affected by this disorder, with a growing number each year. Lets raise awareness to increase the funding and research needed to help so many families touched by Autism. Learn more at http://www.autismspeaks.org/

By the way, the Autism keychain above can be found in my Etsy Shop.

About Jenny Bagwill

You know those milestone moments in your life where the course you were going completely jolts you into reevaluating all you think or believe? Mine came in 2010 along with a precious baby girl. My healthy pregnancy, produced a baby with many internal defects unveiling themselves after birth like a stack of falling dominos. We lost track of her surgery count once we hit double digits. By the grace of God, our little fighter has survived an open heart surgery as well as a liver transplant along with a myriad of tests, blood work, and medical visits. She’s doing quite well, and we share her journey here: http://www.lilsophie.wordpress.com I hope you take the time to read about our girlie and possibly leave a word of encouragement. My milestone moment (that has continued over the last 2 years), presented many idle hospital hours where I used my time to make hair clips for our little girl who battled to live. It also crossed my path with numerous families in many heartbreaking situations. This is when I decided to use my creativity to do what I can to help others. I try to use my God-given talents to encourage and inspire others which you’ll see me blog about here. I also make a lot of custom pieces to raise awareness of illnesses, syndromes, and diseases that may hit close to home with you. As you’ll see my pieces often contain encouraging words – things hard to say to others in the midst of their dark place. You can view, shop, or place a custom order at here at my JeWeL 4U Etsy Shop - http://www.etsy.com/shop/jewel4u And because our Lil’Sophie has had a liver transplant I always encourage others to consider registering to give the gift of life: http://www.organdonor.gov View all posts by Jenny Bagwill
