At the end of each writing, there is a box of Connecting Questions along with a Connection Challenge and a Prayer. This is a beautiful way to take something I read and was inspired by and put it into action. But, yah, sometimes action is the hardest part. It's ok to do it imperfectly. Challenging ourselves to be better at community is worth the earnest but difficult and imperfect try.
Of course, Dayspring has some beautiful items themed around this book that make beautiful gifts for yourself and others. Think of it as the perfect excuse to shop with a "one for you, one for me" approach. You may even decide to read this book with a few close friends, encouraging each other as you go and gifting each other with all the things.
There is built in storage on the back of the frame. That is where 20 different art cards are housed. Maybe you'll choose a scripture to challenge you or remind you of a way you're trying to be the friend you'd like to have. Maybe you'll choose a inspirational quote that fits your present life perfectly.
The one I chose is pictured above. It says "I love my messy, stressful, over-the-top, beautiful life". Y'all, that is my now. A husband working many, many hours...even when he's not at work, a home in the midst of change as we anticipate foster care, 3 kiddos who keep me laughing but also keep me busy with all the things...and yet I love the gift of each moment I have here, in the now.
