make a difference

for the past few years i’ve handmade almost all of our christmas gifts.
my reasons for this are:
1. i love to craft
2. i want to save money
3. i want to give meaningful gifts
4. i despise shopping during the holiday season (which now, apparently, begins in october)

so i craft and sew and bake.
i cut and glue and glitter.

but this year, i’m adding on something else.

i send.

i’m sending these to her for this.

watch this.
seriously, take 2 and a half minutes out of your day.

now join julie and many others to change lives forever.
we are going to build a well.
do you want to change lives forever?
go here and see what julie has up her sleeve.
it’s genius and it’s going to be amazing.

let’s change our perspectives this year.
let’s look outside of ourselves and into the world.
let’s invest in those who are hurting
who are starving.
who are thirsty.

are you in?

    Thank you so much for sharing this! I plan to become a follower of yours. I am also a homeschooling mom that has already chosen this year to lessen the gifts, feel no pressure about shopping and find the relaxation and reverence of this time of year and not the chaos and stress! I am sharing the video!

    This has brought me to tears. I got so very wrapped up in the stress of daily life and this season that I forgot what it truly means.
    Thank you for this. I am also going to share this video and urge everyone to give.

    AWESOME! We are doing this as a year end giving opportunity @ our church…this video is great…Christmas is about Jesus and what HE gave for us…not about what we give to others (or get for that matter) Hats off to you for sharing this important message! :)
