Most of us probably wouldn't say that laundry is our favorite part of the day. The sorting, the trying to remember to put them in the dryer before they begin to smell, the folding, and it never ends. But that perpetual task that sometimes seems to go unnoticed unless someone doesn't have clean underwear for school; well, that task is about to be meaningful to the life of children without families across the world.
You see, some dear friends of mine are making this amazing all natural laundry detergent with all of their profits going to assist families adopting orphans worldwide, beginning with their own sweet baby from Uganda. This amazing family of 7 are opening up their hearts to a baby girl they have never met, but whom God has ordained to become a part of their family since the beginning of time. You can read about them at http://www.vitafamiliae.com/.
The detergent, Hopesuds, smells fantastic and really gets your clothes clean. I put it to the test on a white t shirt with two day old pizza sauce on it- without pre-treating it. It worked great! I was actually surprised because I don't think my old detergent would have gotten that out on the first wash. My whole laundry room smells good, and I'm pretty funny about smells. But this is a yummy citrusy smell that is chemical free. I'm looking for things to wash! (which is not all that hard). You only use a tiny bit (a tbs) so the little bag lasts for like 48 loads! You can order it at http://www.hopesuds.com/ or if you are local you can get some at Favorite Laundry in Mt. Laurel.
Adoption is something that is very close to my heart. It is the most rewarding part of my work outside of my home. I feel very humbled that God chooses to use me in some small way to help give children happy homes that they can grow up in. This is just another way that we can be involved in a ministry that is making an eternal difference in the lives of children.
Everyone has to have some kind of laundry detergent, why not use Hopesuds and join God in His plan to give orphaned children new mommies and daddies? It will change your attitude about doing laundry.
"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." James 1:27
