About Pumpkin Seed Soaps:
We are a family of seven, our kids range in age from 6-15, we
have been homeschooling since the beginning. About 8 years ago God met a
desire of our hearts and moved us from the city to the country where we
live on just a few acres but raise laying hens and broilers. (We had
some questions about butchering–that’s how we found your blog
). We dreamed of living out in the country so that we could be
industrious at home, explore entrepreneurial opportunities, raise some
of our food, live a more quiet and peaceful life, build our
relationships with one another, etc. God provided and we have loved
every minute of it!
About a year and a half ago life started to feel pretty easy and
we became burdened with the call to adoption. We have many friends who
have adopted one, two, three, even four children, children of different
ethnic groups, children of different colors, and we love this picture
of God’s family, which includes people of every nation, tribe and
tongue. So we chose to adopt from an African country. God answered
our prayer and we accepted a referral this past March. We learned early
on, and continue to be reminded, that for some this can be a very
difficult and often painful road. We are praying that no matter what
happens, it will be good. So we trust that God works all things for
good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.
This is definitely a faith journey!
We are in the “waiting” phase of our adoption process. We are
waiting to be united with a little boy from Uganda, he is 2 years old,
he will be 3 in November. God has knit our hearts together. It is a
weird feeling to love someone you have never seen. I have read about
this, thinking, really?? Now I have experienced it! He has the mumps
right now and it is so difficult to be separated from him, but we trust
in God’s perfect timing as we wait. Sometimes this waiting thing is
excruciating (and frustrating)!
I have been making natural soap for a few years now after a
friend gave me a few bars she had made. For the first time, after using
her soap, I did not have to slather my body with moisturizer after
stepping out of the shower! So I started to make my own, sharing it
with family and friends and even selling it at the local farmers
market. Friends encouraged us to sell it on Etsy and we decided we
would take the plunge in hopes of raising some funds to help cover some
of our adoption expenses. Hence our little slogan, “Support (our) adoption, buy (our) soap.” 100% of the profits from our soap sales goes directly into our adoption fund.
