If you’ve been reading here for long, you know that I LOVE packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. This next week (November 16th-23rd) is drop-off week! Just take your gift-filled shoebox to a drop-off location near you … and let the magic begin. 🙂 Seriously, this is one of the most exciting parts of the year for me.

This next week I’ll be packing 31 shoeboxes for my 31st birthday. Some churches and other groups join together and pack thousands. Many families gather together to pack one. And every single shoebox counts. Every one matters.

This week, will you join me and my family?

Family packing time

For ideas, check out our Operation Christmas Child database. And as always, please feel free to reach out to me with any questions – I LOVE to help.

Because here’s the thing. This writing business? It takes a lot of time, and it even costs money to do. And sometimes I get a bit worn out.

But when I get a comment like “Thanks for sharing! I’m going to pack a shoebox!”

That, friends, is my payday as a writer.
