One year ago we made the difficult decision to leave the church we were attending.
For weeks now I’ve been struggling with this idea of “broken” that I’ve seen so many believers embrace.
Turn on your TV, open up Facebook, scroll through Twitter and you’ll come across an increasing amount of angry comments and posts.
People at our church are nice, but it doesn’t extend much past that. Most don’t seem to want to or aren’t able to connect outside of Sunday morning or Bible study.
I’ll admit, it’s not one I have marked on my calendar, but I should.
I could sure use some. Could you?
I’m guessing we all know several women in our lives that could use an encouraging word or gesture.
Loving women in our churches and communities that are fighting and surviving cancer can be hard.
We don’t always know what to do or what to say.
In August of 2014 I had my first mammogram. At my age I have several friends who have found spots, endured biopsies, and even one who has gotten the dreaded cancer diagnosis.
It’s a deep seated need inside of each one of us.
A friend of mine was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I really wanted to send more than just a card to encourage her during her recovery.
During one of my (almost) daily visits to Pinterest, I noticed the idea to send a box sunshine – an assortment of yellow goodies.
Earlier this year, our Women’s Ministry Team hosted a fellowship for our women to come together to make Blessing Bags.
Nothing replaces a handwritten thank you note!
Recipients not only feel appreciated, but they will remember they were not forgotten and are more likely to volunteer again in the future.
