    I love this idea too. I actually know the real Natalie from this book and her family. What an awesome family! And yes, she is really named Natalie and Mrs. Posey was actually Ms. Gunn, the author. This is a true story and Natalie really was mad at her parents because they wouldn’t let her go with her friends to a movie the didn’t think was appropriate. robin really did get a used plate from the garbage to use as an illustration and she did give Natalie the china plate which she still has. I was at a baby shower for Natalie when she had her first daughter. This story was retold at the shower and copies of Gentle Passages were given as hostess gifts. It was a very touching time and I have never forgotten that story. I will be implementing the china plate into my daughter’s life too.

      HOW COOL! Thank you for sharing this story!

      If you ever see Natalie again, tell her she’s kinda famous in our house. :)

    I just LOVE this idea… although I don’t know Natalie in real life… but now I’d like too!:) I think this is such a beautiful illustration of how our children can be set apart for Christ! Thank-you so much for sharing!

    I love that book too. What a great idea. I just saw something similiar on pinterest, but with dollar store plates. We have a pottery place around here, maybe I’ll check the coupon book and see what we can do!

    I just bought this book and am making it into a lesson for my Sunday school class- using dollar store plates and sharpies (if you bake it for 30 minutes at 300 degress, it becomes permanent!). Thank you for the idea.
