It’s been awhile since I’ve posted on the blog. Mostly because life is happening and sometimes there are periods that yield more time to blog and other times that require no blogging. But I’m thankful to be back! And especially excited about this post (or rather series of posts).
This is less of a personal post about motherhood, life, challenges, joys, etc., but rather a challenge of sorts. Yes, I guess we can go ahead and call it a challenge. I’m challenging both you and myself.
The Kindness Challenge.
6 weeks. 6 prayerful challenges.
Who knows. You just may change a life or at the very least make someone’s day.
Are you with me? Why not? What’s there to lose? No excuses. No pressure.
Each week over the next 6 weeks I’ll post the week’s challenge. I encourage you to sign up for my posts so you don’t miss one; that way it’ll come straight to your email (I promise I won’t bombard your account!). You can comment on each post when you complete each challenge. Maybe your idea for completing a challenge will inspire or encourage someone else.
I know this may take you out of your comfort zone. That’s a good thing (I promise!). So let’s keep it simple and start the challenge. Oh! And by the way, if you complete all 6 challenges AND comment on each blog post that you did your name will go into a drawing for a book and a Starbucks gift card. : ) There’s a little incentive for you.
Let’s get started.
Do something kind and thoughtful for a neighbor. And I don’t mean the neighbor that you’re best friends with. I’m talking about the neighbor that you haven’t met yet…or the elderly widow down the street… or those loud college students next door that get on your last nerve… or that family that just moved in with all the kids playing outside… or how about the isolative cancer patient suffering from depression? Yes, friends, this may get uncomfortable. But pray through your challenge, pray for your recipient and be a blessing this week. Are you with me?
Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you. Ephesians 4:32
