UPDATE: Congratulations, Kim Mitchell, you are the winner of this giveaway.
The other day a friend of a friend came over. She was young and heading out of the country to do social work in the sex trafficking arena. We chatted and for a split second I sort of wanted to roll back the clock and live vicariously through her wide-eyed freedom and adventure.
As she started to leave, she said, “I’ve never had a place of my own or had a certain style, but when I do, I want it to look like yours. I think this is my style.”
Oh, you mean colorful, inspiring hodgepodge?
“I used to fill my home with stuff. A few years ago, I decided that it had to be meaningful and inspiring to stay,” I said as I pointed out the inspirational art, the pictures of Mercy House girls and babies, the colorful world maps and the missions statement over our fireplace.
When people walk through my door, I pray my home offers them three things:
Faith-A reminder that God can do anything through anyone
Hope-He redeems our past and transforms our future
Love-I want warm, infectious love for God and others to be felt
