January Giveaway plus a free printable!
Y’all. I’m starting off the new year late. I’m sorry about that but not really to much. I gave myself A LOT of grace this holiday season and it has served me well. I made it through the holidays unscathed, head high and ready to hustle in 2018. I highly recommend self grace. That being said this January couldn’t be more different than last. The buzz circles every new year around your “word of the year” and resolutions. Resolutions aren’t my thing, but the word strikes a cord with me. It’s more of a flame to chase like a moth than something to give up or change. God gave me a word (or phrase really) last year and I completely ignored it. I didn’t do it justice, didn’t even really try. And I am keenly aware that I dropped the ball on that one. The great thing about God is, he didn’t give me the word for him, he did it for me and I’m the one who missed out on blessings for not chasing it down. I tell you this because I’m calling a do-over. Call it my mulligan word of the year if you will. God gave me a new word for this year but I’m not done with last year’s yet so I have a double word thing going on. My hope is that if I tell you the words, you will hold me accountable and I will possibly infuse them into your life a little too. (And vice versa. Let me know your word or resolution for 2018 in the comments!) I know the suspense is just killing you at this point…
Last year’s phrase was BE BOLD. This year God told me to BE GENEROUS. There are so many veins for these words to travel though, so many ways to live them out and not just in the obvious definition of the words. We are going to look at these words through out the year and figure out how to bring them to life. The bible memory verses for 2018 are guided by these words and I hope they are a filter I work through moving forward. January kicks off with generosity in the most common sense of the word, with gifts. I have three giveaways planned this month so far and who knows what else might pop up!
The monthly giveaway is the first giveaway and we are doing it a little different than the previous months. Last month’s winner didn’t want the prize! Say what!? I have notified another winner and will go down the list till I find a taker, but I don’t want that to happen again. I want you guys who are excited and anxious to win!!! Seems it was a little to easy too be entered! We will do a raffelcoptor giveaway instead, the difference is you have to “enter”, but the good news is you can actually get multiple entries with this method. This way I will KNOW you want to have these amazing goodies shipped to your doorstep for FREE, no strings, no gimmecks, just me thanking you for being here! Please see below for how to enter and good luck to you!!! If you win, I hope you will consider sharing a picture of you and your goodies once you get them, not necessary, but I’d love to see you! Here is a pic of the contents:
In the meantime be generous with yourself this month, not in a lavish extravagant way, but allow rest and restoration to happen. Say no, read, pray, have a down day. You will be better for all those around you. I’ll encourage you with other ways to be generous as we move forward. This month’s verse encourages me and reminds me generosity is always rewarding. It’s a fact in the bible, generosity is multiplied and always a blessing for the giver. I just love that.
