Nate and Kim

How you live your life can make an impact every day.

Don’t believe me?  Tell you story about Nate and Kim.

Nate became a christ follower 2 weeks ago and he is still giddy about it.

Nate became a believer because of Kim, but Kim and Nate have never met. 

How is that possible….Well let’s take a look…

Kim knew Jesus from an early age, and in college she had a huge impact on her friends.  While most of her fellow students used college years to experiment, Kim didn’t.  She remained committed to her faith and it showed.  Especially to her roommate, Lisa, who confessed that she wanted whatever it was that make Kim so strong. 

Kim shared her faith with Lisa.  Lisa believed. 

Years later, at Lisa’s first job, Lisa met Thomas, who is in a wheelchair and was hit by a drunk driver and carried anger…Lisa invited Thomas to church, and Thomas believed.

Thomas became a public speaker and told his story about his new perspective on life…He shared about overcoming hardship to experience joy.  He was so passionate that a bunch of people shared his video of him speaking online…

Nate…saw the video and He believed.   Thanks to Kim.  Mut Kim and Nate have never met…except from time to time they share a smile at a coffee shop. 

If you want to see more of Kim and Nate’s story, you can watch their video on my page today at klove.com.  It just reminds you that you don’t have to preach a sermon to make a difference…how you life your everyday life makes a difference . 

Don’t be afraid to be real and tell people what you’ve been through…love what this Mark Burnett says from the LA Dream Center…

“Getting back up again is not only good for you but for a world that desperately needs the comeback story within you.”

Save the Children for Valentine's Day

You might love it…you might hate it…depends on your relationship status…I guess.

Valentine’s Day coming up.  I admit, I love it.  Not for the guy/girl relationship stuff, but because it's an opportunity to show others love. Not necessarily the romantic kind of love, but the unconditional love of God. Just by random acts of kindness.  A card.  A note.  Flowers. Make someone smile.    

I'd love to know your ideas on how you show God's love on Valentine's Day.  

Here's one I found.  If your kids need to buy Valentine's for their class at school, check these out from Save the children.  Proceeds help children in the US living in poverty with health and reading programs in poor neighborhoods and schools.  

Save the Children Valentine's Day

Instead of dreading the day or complaining about it, change it…use it as a day to show others God’s love.
