With a few new followers around here, I thought it would be a good idea to revisit a few of the posts that sit at the heart of this blog. Right underneath the logo at the top of this page, it says, ‘challenging ourselves to live life intentionally, beautifully, and gracefully.’
When Kristi and I started this blog, that really is why we did. We started it as a means to record our attempts at living with purpose. We want to use our time wisely as the days quickly slip through our fingers.
As my thinking and actions have shifted since starting this blog, I have learned that so much of living life purposefully means living life with others in mind. Little is more rewarding than serving those around us.
I can do a lot more to encourage others around me, and even though my days appear busy, I can still make time to serve others.
These posts have been a good refresher for me. Here are a few ideas you may find helpful if you are looking to serve those around you.
