January/Feb Encouragement Challenge w/Winners!!

Post by suewho372 » Sun Jan 06, 2019 4:22 pm

Since i ran this for 2 months I picked 2 winners (random.org). The winners are:  Becky S. and Carrie G!! 
Congratulations ladies!!!   Thank you to all who played along, I hope you had fun! All the submissions are WONDERFUL and I love them all! Wow the inspiration that you guys give!!   I will send you guys over a gift card when I get a second!!!  :greeninlove:

** so I hope no one is upset- I need to extend this challenge through the end of Feb. new due date: Feb 28.
I’ve got a lot of things going on- have additional work and traveling. Have a lot going on outside of work with an awesome opportunity to stretch my crafty wings with a creative bible study a friend and I are leading at church. Thanks for your understanding!


So I was looking to do a different kind of challenge and this is what I came up with. I don't know if there will be much interest but we will see!!
So I guess to explain it is by Proverbs 27:17 " Iron sharpens Iron, So one man sharpens another." In our christian life - it is hard- and we need to stand and encourage each other.  God has given us gifts- our talent of craftiness- and we can encourage each other with that gift. God gave us these gifts and he wants us to enjoy them, as well as glorify him!  He is a God of relationship- spending time creating something that glorifies him and focuses on him and his word IS spending time nurturing that relationship and growing it. So with this challenge I am challenging/encouraging you to
1.  Grow in your personal relationship with God, and
2.  Encourage and sharpen us- other cherries- our community.

So for the challenge, the only thing I am requiring is : I want to see a scripture on your layout, card, project.
So this is open to all vectors.
Due date is Jan 31 at 11:59 pm
I haven't decided what the prize is going to be yet..... so that is TBD

So for my example I used 1 Thessalonians 5:11  therefore encourage one another and build one another up....

I am excited to see what you share with us!!!

Love this new challenge! 

One of my goals for this year is to deepen my relationship with God, to become more obedient to His calling - whatever that may be....

Here's my page.  My scripture fits this family holiday photo:  'Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins."
1 Peter 4:8.
