I'm so excited to tell you about a new study that Greg and I are doing with our small group. We host and lead a monthly Life Group at our home and chosen our newest study.
A little background information... Over the summer I attended the Women of Faith Conference in Dallas. (It is amazing if you have never gone, go at least once!!) While there I spoke with Greg about sponsoring a child and we chose to do so. We selected a child that was born on the day we married. In the packet of information you get when sponsoring was a book by Max Lucado, Out Live Your Life. I didn't pay much attention to the book until I was put on bed rest and had an abundance of free time to read. The book is amazing an I recommend everyone read it. You have something to gain from it!
So Greg and I chose to do the study for our small group.
These are difficult days in our world's history. Billions of people are poor, millions go hungry or thirsty every day. Disease claims thousands of lives daily. But you and I have been given an opportunity to make a big difference. What if we did? What if we rocked the world with hope? Infiltrated all corners with God's love and life? We are created by a great God to do great works. He invites us to outlive our lives, not just in heaven, but here on earth. What if you lived in such a way that your death is just the beginning of your life?
Max Lucado presents four DVD sessions that follow the real-life stories of people who are making their lives count. In four DVD sessions designed for individual study or for a small group experience, Max will show you not just why but how to live intentionally so that everything in your life---your time, your skills, your passions---all add up to something bigger than you.
Along with the study we are also encouraging everyone to participate in The Shine Project's Pass It Forward. Click HERE for more details.
Ashley is encouraging everyone to make a difference, one act of kindness at time.
The difference? You give this card to the recipient of your act of kindness.
Then you log your act and watch how travels.
Will you make a difference today? I hope so!
