A Deployment Goodbye Gift

I just wanted to draw your attention to the newest changes on our website!


https://www.weservetoo.com/We Serve Too! A Child’s Deployment Book, read in its entirety to you by Kathleen, just for you! (scroll down a bit)


https://www.weservetoo.com/Color_Sing_Create.html Deployment Goodbye Gift, a new song by Paula Johnson. Honestly, I was in on the writing of this song, ( as in being the first to hear it) and the first time, I knew it would be something really special. Then, Paula had a good friend and musician have her children sing it, and I could not keep the tears from leaking. I cried through the whole thing. It’s sweetness and bittersweeness touched my heart, and I know touches other hearts as well. I personally love the voices of children singing just about anything, but this one, with the lyrics so meaningful for the children we love and work for, is just a special experience.

We hope that you are finding the summer a time of joy with family and friends and that you are enjoying each one of these sunny warm days while they are here. It all goes so fast, so breathe the early morning freshness, the smell of suntan lotion, BBQ grills, and chlorine at the pool. Enjoy the taste of cool watermelon, and an ice cream cone or two. Take the kids out after dark to see the shining stars (we take a ride in the wagon around the neighborhood) . We pray for you some summer joys, and would love to hear from you about what you think about our books, songs or other resources for your Military Family.
