Happy Friday everyone! I am just popping in today to let you know that next week we are joining up with an inspiring group of bloggers to participate in the #bethelightchallenge.

These seem to be crazy times, don’t they?

In America we are heading full steam into an election that has many of us uncertain about what the future will bring. Over the next few weeks, we’re joining with a group of bloggers to call for all of us to work together to bring light and hope to those we touch.  Social media is a tool that can bless but can also simultaneously cause hurt, anxiety and jealousy. It is easy to get caught up in the negativity on Facebook (political rants from friends that suddenly question why you ever liked them? #beenthere!} or feelings of inadequacy that creep in when you scroll through Instagram {thinking ‘my home will never be that perfect and beautiful’ #donethat!}. These small glimpses into our friends’ beliefs, values and personal lives can sometimes leave us feeling anything BUT inspired and uplifted, am I right?



We will be joining with the eight bloggers above to bring you our stories of light and hope with you all over the next week. We will be sharing on November 2nd, but here is the entire schedule:

Salvage Sister & Mister -Nov 1st
11 Magnolia Lane – Nov 2nd
An Extraordinary Day – Nov 3rd
Plum Doodles – Nov 4th
Blessed Lonestar Mess – Nov 5th
At the Picket Fence – Nov 6th
Real Girl’s Realm -Nov 7th
The Homemakers Journal – Nov 8th

In addition, there will be free printables, devotionals and more from each participating blogger. Please join us with the #bethelightchallenge over the next few weeks on your social media to share stories of lightness and hope with the world.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16

Have a wonderful weekend!
