Thirty days ago I began the 30-Day Giving Challenge. If you started this journey with me, then you know I was a little apprehensive, but I was confident that if I stepped out in faith, God would do His part.
And did He ever!

I shared a few  experiences along the way….

And there were a few I didn’t share:

  • Making bags for the mom’s who participate in the Mommy & Me program at FaithWorks. Emma and Camden helped. Each bag contained the items pictured below. I could not do these projects without those of you who donate extra coupons. Thank you so much!

  • Rounding up items for Camden to contribute to a Soldier’s care package at school. The father of one of her classmates is in Afghanistan until May. I loved being able to give for this project as well as see my daughter’s realization of the sacrifices made for our freedom and the joy she received in giving.
  • Sending non-perishable food items to school with Emma & Camden for the Bedlam Food Drive.
  • Sending gently used clothing to school with Abbi for the Christmas Charity Drive.

And then there was the intangible but oh so rewarding giving:

  • an apology to my husband when he least expected it
  • playing monopoly with my son, Paul
  • praying for others like I said I would
  • listening to Emma play “Old McDonald Had a Farm” on her recorder over, and over, and over and over
  • Cutting my tween some slack on nagging her about her messy room

This has been an amazing 30 days! God met us by showing opportunity when we asked to see. This is a prayer we’ll carry forth and although the 30-day challenge is over, the giving has just begun!

Did you participate in the 30-Day Giving Challenge? I’d love to hear your stories or thoughts!

For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes. He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the alien, giving him food and clothing. Deuteronomy 10:17-18
