If there’s one thing I’m learning about this journey of being a follower of Christ, a wife, a mother, a counselor, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a neighbor, and a full-time dish-washer, laundry-folder, meal-maker, and toy pick-er-upper, it’s this…
I NEED OTHERS!!!
I need accountability.
I need encouragement.
I need prayer.
I need heart-to-hearts and heads-to-heads.
I need feedback.
I need hugs.
I need fellowship.
I need direction.
I need “me-too” moments.
I need opportunities for growth.
I need conversation.
I need coffee and conversation.
I need “swift-kick-in-the-pants” moments.
I need reminders of TRUTH.
I NEED OTHER JESUS-FOLLOWERS BECAUSE I CAN’T DO THIS JOURNEY ALONE!!!
So, for this month’s “do-good” give-away, I am giving away a $25 gift card to Amazon!
Well, my intent is that the winner of this month’s give-away will use this gift card to buy yourself AND someone else a book.
What kind of book?
My hope is that you would pick a book (a marriage book, a parenting book, a new book, an older book, a book of the Bible book, a great, big theology book, or even a teeny, tiny prayer book) that the Lord can use to grow your faith, strengthen your resolve to follow Him, and provide an opportunity for you to learn and grow alongside another believer.
Does that mean I need to find someone to read the book with me?
A life-long friend, a struggling church member, your husband, a co-worker, a lonely soul, another tired mom, or a random neighbor that you want to know better.
So this will take some effort on my part, huh?
Send an e-mail, pick a book, set a date, find a place, start reading, begin discussing, and be ready for the Lord to MOVE!!!
So should I decide I want to take on this challenge, how do I win this gift card give-away?
In the comment section below, share a blessing from this week, and on Friday afternoon (4:00 PM EST), I will randomly choose a winner!
Oh, and if you don’t win…why not try this challenge with your own 25 bucks?? You really can’t lose!
