Big congratulations to Melanie, the winner of my first ever give away. Here’s what she had to say about how she is living intentionally this year:
I love what you are doing. What a special way to share a Christian approach to participating in New Years resolutions. Mine isn’t the normal self challenge. Instead, my changes in 2014 involve my prayer request. I have been praying for a stronger connection in church. You see, my youngest child had separation disorder and would never participate in the children’s church. This meant that I had to try to listen to the pastor and deal with a bored toddler. I know this is not new to mothers but it just really challenged me. Plus my husband doesn’t care to go to church very often so I really have felt a lack of support. This last Christmas changed my church attendance for sure! I was at home and talking to my children about the story of Jesus and why we celebrate the holiday. I was deeply ashamed when my youngest son said that he did not know who Jesus was. How could this happen? How could I have let this happen? Right then I prayed and asked God to bring us home! The Sunday right before Christmas, I took my little 4 year old Judah to church and for the first time he loved it! I felt so blessed and loved by The Lord. Thank you Jesus for loving us all so much and for making my New Years resolution for me. My children and I have returned to church.
Melanie, check your inbox and let me know where to send your fantabulous key chain.
For the rest of you, I think you’re awesome! Thank you for joining the conversation. I have loved reading your commitments for this year. They are inspiring me to keep dreaming about who I want to be and how to get there. Love that. Hope you found some inspiration too.
And, it’s possible that I’m hooked on this give away thing–it was so fun reading your comments and anticipating who would get this lovely giftie. This will have to become a more common occurrence! Stay tuned.
