Be the Light Challenge

In this day and time, it is easy to get discouraged from all the pain, violence, and brokenness in the world.  I have to admit that I try to avoid the news because it ends up making me sad and worried for my child's future.  I feel like now, more than ever, the world needs more love, peace, kindness, and hope.  I am excited to be partnering with 7 other bloggers for a #bethelightchallenge!

Eight lifestyle bloggers got together to share a Be the Light Challenge. This challenge is to encourage to share God's light and love online in social media. The challenge will run from Nov 1-8, 2016. Each day we will have a verse and inspiration to be the light. This comes at a great time when social media is filled with so much contention over election and other issues. How to disagree, how to love, how to be the light when there is so much fighting.

It is no secret that we all spend WAY too much time on our phones and social media.  A new University of Michigan study on college-aged adults finds that the more they used Facebook, the worse they felt.  Yet, we have influence...and a chance to use our platform for good.

And now, dear brothers and sisters, let me say one more thing as I close this letter. Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. (Philippians 4:8)

Over the next week, several of my fellow bloggers and I will be sharing stories of encouragement of how to be a light in the darkness. I hope you will stop by each blog and share on social media.  Some of us will also be offering downloadable materials, so check back each day.

This challenge is a call to encourage:
  • How to share opinions (political or not) in a Godly manner.
  • How to guard our hearts and minds.
  • How to deal with conflict online
  • Setting limits (1 Corinthians 6:12) for yourself and others
  • What to do when you are tested
In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:16)
