Lexi Jumps 4 Joy

I was very touched yesterday as I read about a new blog called Jumps 4 Joy.You see, the author of Jumps 4 Joy is Lexi and she's a teenager. She has such a heart for the hurting children of the world. Lexi realizes how blessed she is. Lexi lives in a home where she doesn't have to worry about where her next meal will come from. She doesn't have to worry about finding shelter or water. And Lexi is loved by her parents.

Lexi has 7 brothers and sisters and 5 of them were adopted from places like Guatamala and Ethiopia!

Lexi has been exposed to parts of the world where children are suffering and don't get to live with the luxuries so many of us have. She's seen first hand orphanages where children are anxious to have a mommy and daddy. And this has impacted her tender heart.
Instead of thinking that her family has done its part through adoption, Lexi feels strongly that she can do something ...even if it's one child at a time.

Lexi has lots of wisdom for one so young, don't you think?

She's jumping rope to raise money to help the children.
I follow her mom's blog Forever n Ever n Always. When Jill was doing one of her vlogemotions, I noticed someone jumping rope in the background. That got me curious. And then I learned about Lexi's project. You've got to visit Lexi's Jumps 4 Joy and read about what she's doing.
