Here I Swap 2016

Next year, the Lutheran church celebrates the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation (like we needed a reason to celebrate), but it never hurts to start rejoicing a little early. 

Like, a whole year. 

Thus, Here I Swap 2016. 

It was such a treat to have 135+ ladies take part in this year's swap, including three ladies from Canada and one from Norway. 

And the packages they sent! Sweet goodness. They were filled to the brim with coffee, tea, hot chocolate, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, all the kinds of chocolate, monogrammed mugs, personalized mugs, hilarious mugs, handmade items, hymn verses and lots of joy in meeting another sister in Christ, no matter where she lives. 

So get ready for next year's swap. Bookmark the blog so you don't miss out on the announcement. Get your mug-dar on.

September 2017, we're coming for you . . . with our coffee mugs, our hymnals and our comfort, which is found in Jesus alone! 

PS If you took part in the swap and haven't received a package by Friday, September 30, shoot me an email, and I'll check in with the gal who had your name. 


  1. Thanks for all the time and effort you put into this fun little event.

  2. So sorry to have missed this swap. I don't "need" another coffee mug but do "love me" some good Lutheran women's fellowship! Looking forward to participating next year. :-)
