Kindness really matters. It is the little things that make a huge difference each and every day.
You never know what a hug can do for someone.. a phone call to check up on someone. That person may be facing terminal cancer, or severe depression, you see, and that day, they may have thought of ending their life. I have seen how kindness, acts of extreme love can change a bad day into a great one for someone.
It takes courage to step out and be kind to people you may not know, but I have seen and found out that these are the greatest of all acts where coupled with intentional love and prayer to really make a difference in this world and every day, you CAN be someone’s greatest encourager, lifter of their spirits, friend….and blessing!
I wanted to start this as an open letter to the church with the title "We are Many" but then it dawned on me that it's not just the church that needs to hear it. To that regard, most people don't even care about open letters anymore and write them off as spam or some sort of bitter diatribe about that persons most recent offense. I'm torn on whether or not I still want to state this as an open letter, but for the time being, we'll just leave it open (yes I crack myself up lol) and address the church.

I teach a high school philosophy class (homeschool co-op) and one of our topics of conversation this week was “how is the experience of loving someone is different and similar to liking someone?” As I’m sure you can imagine this sparked quite a conversation amongst my homeschoolers. I directed them toward thinking about family versus friends, not so much
One of my students said, “well I guess if you really love someone you’re more willing to sacrifice something for them”. That was the exact answer I was looking for someone to give. Our conversation went on and it was a good class, but it left me with pondering these thoughts for the rest of the week. That answer wasn’t super profound, most adults I know would say the same thing. So why did this cause me to ponder for several more days? I’ll let you into my thoughts for awhile. If this ride gets scary, feel free to disembark.
Let’s talk about meal prepping. Some look at meal prepping as a tedious adventure. However, if you start small I feel you will see that it isn’t as bad as what you think. Everyone does meal prepping differently. Explore what works for you and build on that!
If you’re serious about meal planing, here are a few things you should do:
