Thankful Thursdays: Week 48 – Coffee for Malawi

December 6, 2012

As I mentioned on the bottom of two of my recent posts, our family is trying to think of creative ways to raise money for Advent Conspiracy.  $50 will feed one orphan or vulnerable child in Malawi, Africa for a full year PLUS provide a lifetime of drinking water to their family.  We would like […]

Thankful Thursdays: Week 47 – A guest post

November 29, 2012

Since starting Project 365 Thanks at the beginning of this year, only one person has been consistently posting their thanks at the end of each day, and it isn’t me.  Although this project has cultivated a more thankful heart in me, I haven’t been faithful in writing all of those thanks down as I had […]

November 14, 2012

Last week, I celebrated each day.  Full of energy, determined to make the most of each day.  I started numbering the days, thankful to get to two days of feeling good.  Then three, then four.  By the end of day five, I was exhausted.  I was sure it was just because of the busy week, […]

October 18, 2012

Today is anti-slavery day.  I think we can all agree that we would have been against slavery 150 years ago.  But what about now? Did you know that right now there are 27 million men, women, and children being held as slaves.  27 million! A number like that is hard to wrap your head around. […]

Thankful Thursdays: Week 40 – Encouragement

October 11, 2012

Last month I spoke to the Food for the Hungry staff about Ethiopia.  I was saddened by how many of the details of the trip had faded already.  I sat there and grasped for memories. There are stories left to write, will I still be able to tell them?  Self-doubt creeps in.  Maybe I’m not […]

Thankful Thursdays: Week 39 – Meet Coach Bob

October 4, 2012

I’ve been traveling a bit lately, and when I’m gone my parents pick up the slack.  Actually, they do much more than that.  Grandma and Grandpa take such great care of the kids that when I come home, the kids ask when I’m going to leave again.  On my last trip, they built a giant […]

Thankful Thursdays: Week 38 – The Road Less Traveled

September 26, 2012

This week I’m simply thankful for those who inspire me to live a better story, to get off the couch and do something, to press on towards something better. I think we all have something inside us that longs for adventure and romance, something epic we can be a part of.  Then routine settles in, […]
