WHY is it that stories like this are becoming more and more common? Is it because I’m getting older? Is it because the world is smaller?
I know several families who have lost loved ones this summer, and I’ve seen how hard it is on them emotionally and financially so when I heard about this eBook Benefit Sale, it resonated with me.
My friend Mandi Ehman, who runs the Life Your Way sites, has put together an eBook Sale to benefit a family she knows who recently and very suddenly lost their husband and father to a brain infection. I thought this was a brilliant way to raise funds for a family in need, and you get $50 worth of eBooks for $5! How can you beat that!?

Following is the email I received from Mandi. Find out how to purchase the eBook bundle.
Earlier this month, my friend Jenny called 911 after her husband became disoriented and incoherent. He was immediately taken to ICU with a brain infection and fell into a coma-like state. Over the 10 days that followed, we prayed continuously for his healing, and it was a bit of a roller coaster ride as they doctors would become hopeful that they had a diagnosis or treatment and then things would worsen once again. Two weeks ago, he passed away, leaving behind his wife and five children between the ages of 9 months and 11 years old.
As Jenny moves forward as a single mom after her husband’s death, I know finances are a huge stress for her. She’s a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom, and while they did have life insurance, it’s really not enough given the circumstances.
As a way to help their family while still providing a great resource for readers, I’ve brought together a small group of bloggers and put together a pretty amazing benefit sale, which includes the 9 ebooks listed below plus the complete set of Life Your Way printables. The set is worth more than $50, but will be available for just $5 for three days only, starting at midnight ET on Tuesday, 10/2.
I am making no money on this, neither is Mandi or the eBook authors. 100% of all proceeds will go directly to the Barlow family.
Purchase the eBook bundle here, and spread the word! The sale ends tomorrow (Thursday) night.
