Cupcakes for $1

ADVERTISEMENT

Yesterday my pastor, Dennis McNulty, preached on Jesus' parable of the servants who were entrusted with the talents. At the conclusion of the service the offering plate was passed again and this time EVERYONE was encouraged to take out one brand new $1 dollar bill. Young and old alike were encouraged to take our dollars and increase them by Easter Sunday morning.

My family (and Trevor's girlfriend) pooled our dollars and with the $6 Amy bought the ingredients and boxes and made spring cupcakes. We are selling them 4 for $4 in a nice gift box or .50 each. Chipper went to a couple of doors in our neighborhood and sold two boxes, I have sold two boxes and 6 individual ones so far. We have already trippled our initial "talent."

This is teaching my son Chipper (and the rest of us) the scriptures in a real applicable, relevant way, and it's fun too. One of our first customers nicknamed them "Jesus cupcakes" because of the initial "Jesus dollar." Remembering that is helping me fight off the temptation to sneak and eat one!!!!!!

Want a cupcake?
