It is no secret that while we adore, and often envy the fabulous projects, crafts and recipes that you all share with us each week; that one of our favorite parts of Inspiration Friday is the beautiful, inspiring and often soul-checking stories that you also link up.
We thought it would be a blessing to share each month some of the ones that stood out, challenged or moved us in a special way with all of you!
Up first I want to introduce Kelli from More Bang for your Bucks who is challenging her readers with the Encouragement Project.
Each week she is sharing ways to encourage others. She has such wonderful insight in how to be a blessing to all of those around you. We encourage you to follow her and become a part of the Encouragement Project.
Dana from Make Them Wonder shared a beautiful story with us about her father, who in spite of a devastating illness, through the grace of God has been able to continue to create art like this…
as a testimony to God’s love. Dana shares many more of her dad’s lovely artwork in this post. We’d love you to pay her a visit and read more of her story.
Melissa from Made In The South shared with us how we can still find beauty even in the midst of anxiety
Carole from Blue Chateau Interiors has been writing a series 31 Days to better finances during tough times. In her post Inspiration for the Tough Times. She shared with us how God spoke to her about fear and control…
and reminded her WHO was carrying her through this tough time. So many are experiencing tough times financially right now. We encourage you to read Carole’s series, it is life changing!
We love when Susan from My Place to Yours shares stories about Hope Unlimited for Children. We always feel like we are right there with them when the travel overseas or when they are celebrating 20 years of providing hope!
We invite you to follow Susan and her blog to see the amazing way that Hope Unlimited is changing the lives of children for God’s glory! Be prepared it will challenge you!
This story touched our hearts! Bea from Modern Country Lady answered a call for help and it changed two lives. The life of a Joan a woman living life in a nursing home with not only had a degenerative disease, but was also in a wheelchair .She was so ill that she was completely dependent on her care givers for everything. On top of all that, her room that she spent most of her time in, looked out on a stone wall. But it also changed Bea’s life as well. Bea created a mural for Joan so she no longer had to look at a stone wall….
This is a story of love and using one’s talents and gifts to bless others! Please take a moment to read it and let Bea know how it touched you!
We hope you’ll take just a moment this Sunday to visit some of these amazing stories and bloggers. It takes a lot of courage to share words from the heart. We call this “Simply Sundays” but there is nothing simple about becoming vulnerable enough to open yourself up to others. Thank you for joining us each week as we share our hearts with you at Simply Sundays and THANK YOU to these lovely ladies for doing the same!
Enjoy this beautiful Sunday wherever you are and as always thank you for joining us…at the picket fence.
