{Hope for the Home} Linky Party: Finding God in the Everyday

Do you have a hard time taking what you learned at church on Sunday and putting it into practice during the week?

Maybe you wish you had better ideas for teaching your kids about God? Or new ways to share him with your loved ones?

Look no further, my friends!

God has given me the vision to start a new blog series that helps people incorporate God into their everyday lives and homes.

The D6 literature calls it "God sightings" or "faith talks."

Basically, it is doing intentional things in your day to day lives that spur thoughts/conversations about God, making your home and life a living testimony.

The series will be called "{Hope for the Home}: Finding God in the Everyday." It will run every Monday and each post will be an idea on how to do this.


This year...I am excited to annouce that YOU will have the opportunity to link up your own ideas, as well! Simply join us every Monday to see what we come up with and then link up your own {Hope for the Home} post! We can encourage one another to be more Christ-like in our jobs, homes, lives, marriages, name it! As we start to get link-ups, I will feature my favorites each week!

You might share a craft that teaches your child a Bible story or a piece of decor for your home. You might share a devotional thought or an object lesson. You may even share a recipe with a spiritual parallel or an inspirational printable to display in your home. Really anything that people can use to make God apart of their everyday life and home. The possibilities are endless.

I have noticed that there is an overload of this kind of stuff around the holidays, but it would be nice for people to have a place that they can come to for ideas year round, especially for "stay at home" moms or homeschoolers. My hope is that every Monday we will become a community, sharing ideas and helping one another make our homes and lives a living testimony for Christ!

My goal is for the Worthy of the Prize blog to become a place where anyone can come to find encouragement and motivation to "reach their full potential in Christ," no matter where they are on their journey.

And the best part about this is that you will not be hearing just from me! I am lining up some fantastic guest bloggers to share their ideas as well. 

Go here to see the posts in the series so far.

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. {Deuteronomy 6:4-9}
