Lilla Rose is the maker of the popular flexi-clip, a unique hair accessory that busy moms love. In a matter of seconds a lovely “up-do” can be achieved that looks as if it took much longer to put together than it actually did. Toss out those ugly plastic claws, friends! You will love the flexi and wonder how you ever did without it.

Forgotten Christmas . . .
Before I share a highlight of our family’s missionary work and present a GIFT for this Visionary Womanhood Giveaway, I invite you to watch a short, compelling video, called FORGOTTEN CHRISTMAS, produced by Gospel for Asia (a wonderful missions organization). It gets to the heart of what many families, even Christian families, are missing in their Christmas celebrations.
Jesus came from heaven as God’s gift to the world; but obviously, that divine manger-birth was not the end of His story. Our Lord Jesus demonstrated God’s love through His perfect life, then gave the greatest gift of all — His sinless blood through His sacrificial death on the Cross — to pay the sin-penalty for all of humanity.
This heart for the Lord and the lost, locally and globally, is our family’s passion.
Focusing on God’s Great Commission (Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:15) is what we do, full-time. In 1987, my husband Jon Dunagan and I founded Harvest Ministry, and for 25 years, we haven’t worked any other “job,” outside of the ministry. We’ve simply trusted in God’s provision, for both missions and our family.
We’ve devoted our lives to sharing the Gospel wherever and whenever God says “Go!” — and it’s been an incredible adventure! We launched into full-time missions when we were just 21-years-old, with only $27 (plus one little baby!). Since then, we’ve focused on preaching the Gospel in primarily “unreached” areas across the globe (collectively, our family has ministered in 70+ nations on all 7 continents).
How have we done this with kids?
When we were younger, we primarily traveled together, with babies and toddlers-in-tow. As our family grew, sometimes Jon traveled without us (especially as the ministry emphasized dangerous, yet ripe-for-harvest areas — such as Sudan, following civil war, or Rwanda, after the genocide). As he went and I stayed home, my love for the lost was “poured-out” into several mission-minded books.
In 2006, my heart was about to “burst” for AIDS orphans, so (long story, short) we added a “LOVING ORPHANS” outreach (starting with 35 children, now caring for 700+ kids and youth). This month (in addition to ongoing provision for so many, plus overseeing hundreds of village churches), we’re working on a fun project, bringing electricity to our children’s center and providing 700 “Pillows for Kiddos!”
Remembering missions . . .
During this special Thanksgiving and Christmas focus, take time to “see” the needs of our world — spiritually and physically — and consider the true meaning of this holy season. More than pumpkin pies, nativity-decorations, and “Jesus-is-the-reason” cards, remember what this pivotal point in our Christian history is all about.
