Friday SHINE....

Today's Reading: Luke 12

Happy Fun Friday, SHINE girls!

Wow! What a week this has been!

I am SO excited to announce that we delivered the SHINE Mission Project Donations to The Sparrows Nest in Athens this week.

Needless to say, I was blown away by what the Sparrows Nest is doing for the homeless community in Athens. Wow.

I met  many incredible people that I hope to see again one day.

Jerome (nickname: Bear), Bernice, Angela, Wiley, Missy, and Chris


                   same folks--minus Missy, plus me on the end. :)
They were VERY grateful for YOUR donations!

So, thank YOU, again!

Speaking of giving...

Our Fun Friday Challenge:

It's the 12 Days of Giving Christmas Away Challenge!

I gave this challenge to some friends on Wednesday, and they were all on board with doing this!

Are you?

Here's what you do: For the next 12 days, give ONE thing away to someone every day.

It does NOT have to be of monetary value. 

For example: My son helped a kid at school with his homework. He GAVE his time away. 

You can give anything! Your time, some encouraging words, a note to someone, offer to help someone with a project or run an errand for them,. a back rub for you hubby...get creative, girls!

At the end of the day, talk to your family or some friends about what you did that day to give Christmas away. 

This challenge forces us to be others-focused. Don't you just love that?

Okay, you know the deal....

Now, GO! GIVE!


give it away girls,
