Um. New Month? Fresh start?

Uh —- how do we get back to parts of a life that exists somewhere behind us?

I can NOT get this story out of my head — it’s literally changing my life:

How to Survive This Virus (Chapter 2): Losses Come in Waves: How to Find The Way Through & The Complete Passage Deal

No Need You Have Will Exhaust God: Philippians 4:18–20

New month. May. What is needed now more than ever?

That we be the hands and feet of Jesus for each other, that we help be what each other needs, that we #ShowUpNow for each other, that we #BeTheGift to each other.

Because actual lives depend on it.

Right now, we all desperately need to be the gift to each other. To stand together in solidarity—FOR each other—knowing that an act of kindness, giving it forward, can be more powerful than the spread of any pandemic, more powerful sword in starting movements that move us all toward Love.

Dare with us? Let’s spread kindness, start a bit of a movement, a giving, generous, caring, broken and given and transforming revolution that turns things around.

Could there be a more beautiful way to live your one life in times like these?

Easy, doable ideas for the whole family to Give It Forward Today, even in the midst of COVID 19—to be the G.I.F.T.

On Repeat this Week: He Shall Reign

[ 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!
