The Stuff of Life

Dresses, Dresses, Dresses (and shorts)

This is just a quick “Clothe Them” (that’s what I’ve decided to call this project, at least for now) update. I would like the world to know that my mom is a sewing machine. Not literally 😉 but definitely figuratively. She just keeps cranking out the dresses and shorts. I’ve also been receiving bags of dresses from friends and friends of friends. It’s quite amazing really. It makes me a little emotional, or (maybe that’s just hormones). Whatever it is, I get tears in my eyes when I look at the piles of clothes in “Mara’s room.” (We let our longtime babysitter, as close to family member as you can get without actually being in the family, claim a room when we moved in. That’s totally unrelated, but now you know a little bit of trivia about my family.) I will post a grand total next Monday after I ship the dresses, but for now here are the numbers.

DRESSES – 268                                    SHORTS – 100

I am the wife of a guitar-playing, worship-leading, adventure-loving husband. I am the mother of three incredible sons: two of whom recently surpassed me in height, and one of whom I am going to pretend is still my baby. I am saved by grace; a daughter of the King who was and is and is to come. *** I am a regular contributor at Today’s Christian Woman, a monthly blogger at Inspire a Fire and have freelanced for a variety of publications including Chicken Soup for the Soul and Guideposts. *** The 500 Dresses ministry that I started with my mom in 2010 is our way of answering the call to serve those in poverty.

  1. Woo hoo for my room!

    I’m so excited about all the dresses. My sewing machine is not in a very good position to be used right now as it is occupying my entryway table alongside keys and some various decorations… Why my roommate thinks my sewing machine table is a good place for that stuff, I’m not sure, but it is what it is. Otherwise I’d have made many noble attempts to sew dresses this time around.

  2. Next time around we’ll do a sewing day together 🙂 And once your room has been emptied of dresses, you should come have a sleepover.
