The holidays beckon us home. Whether we celebrate with friends, family or both, our homes can hold more than guests: they can tell stories of justice and empowerment.

This one-of-a-kind live webcast event will be filled with inspiration and fun, practical tips for incorporating Fair Trade items in your home from our panel of speakers. These individuals are best-selling authors, influential bloggers, home stylists, musicians, impactful leaders in the Fair Trade world, and more!

Our goal for this evening it to create a live webcast event where individuals and groups of people can come together in Christ, rally around a bigger cause, and use their purchasing power and influence to change the lives of marginalized women around the world.

on repeat this week: Living Hope

[ Print’s FREE here: ]

…as you look into the coming week, remember — there will still be love when the worst happens and when the hope doesn’t happen, there will still be love when everything’s crumbling and there will be enough love to rebuild, there will be enough love to keep breathing, to keep believing, to keep being and being brave.

Fear can be what we feel — but brave is what we do.

There’s enough Brave in us to believe that though the world is broken, there is light getting in…

[excerpted from our little Facebook family … come join us each day?]

Dare to fully live!

That’s all for this weekend, friends.

Go slow. Be God-struck. Grant grace. Live Truth.

Give Thanks. Love well. Re – joy, re- joy, ‘re- joys’ again
