Yesterday morning, we read a book we found at the library called, "Beatrice's Goat." We were struck by how big a difference one goat can make to the life of a family. Our kids, Owen (9), Saren (6) and Davita (4) saved some of their money to use for giving. They decided they wanted to buy a goat for a family. The problem was they did not have enough money to buy a full goat and they did not want to buy a share of a goat.
They problem solved together and decided to set up a lemonade and chocolate chip cookie stand to raise more money. The kids made the cookies and lemonade themselves and set up the stand. In two hours, they had made enough money to buy the goat.
We went online this morning and made the purchase. Our prayer is that this would be a strong, healthy goat and a special gift to the family who receives it.
