Generosity Week: Give and Win $100 from The Peaceful Mom! 

It’s January, which means not so nice weather, lots of indoor time and the after-the-holidays doldrums. To counteract the grayness of January our family will be focusing on generosity this week in big and small ways. A few of the things we will be doing are making some treats for friends, giving away a $20 gift card to a stranger and doing random acts of kindness at home and in our neighborhood.

If you would like to participate with us this week, I am also hosting a giveaway here on the blog! I will be giving away a $100 Visa gift card to one of my readers, along with a $50 Walmart gift card for the winner to give to someone else!

I lost my job last week. I am completely devastated. A friend suggested your website to help me save since my income has stopped. My husband is a police officer and I worked full-time in the mental health field. We live on a 2 family income. I have two wonderful children. The hardest part is to look my children in the eye and tell them no because mommy lost her job. Even though I did nothing wrong to lose my job I feel like a failure. I have to start cutting costs at home. Your website has been very helpful. A 100.00 would be so helpful at this time. I have agreed to watch a friend’s little girl for free this week because I know how expensive child-care can be. I am glad to pay it forward. Thank you.

Kimberlee January 14, 2013 at 6:41 pm

I am so sorry that you lost your job Jamie. I pray that you will be able to quickly find something else. Good for you for giving to someone else in spite of your circumstances.

I still am learning this social media thing. I don’t know how to copy the link to my Pin, but I did it! I follow you on Pinterest & have “Like”(d) you on Facebook & re-posted and Pinned this info. I’m a Fibromyalgia disabled wife & part-time stepmom. I have learned to make jewelry and am giving a special custom leather-wrapped bracelet to my dentist’s young, single mom asst (in her fav color) at my appt this Wed, that I made as a treat for no particular reason. I also just completed custom jewelry sets for 2 of my friend’s daughters for their upcoming winter formal, matching each of their dresses. Thank you for always helping those of us who depend so much on living virtually online to connect with others!

Beth January 14, 2013 at 6:13 pm

Thank you so much for encouraging us to give generously. It is, honestly, something I struggle with. Our budget seems so small. You reminded me that I have been given SO MUCH, though! Over the past several days, I’ve kept my eyes and my heart open for opportunities to give generously. A few days ago, in a store, I overheard a woman who seemed extremely stressed. I didn’t have anything tangible to “give” her, so I prayed with her right there in the checkout at Walgreens! The LORD used you, and your blog to encourage me, and I hope that He used me to encourage her! Thank you, Kimberlee!!!!

Kimberlee January 14, 2013 at 6:39 pm

Thank you for sharing that story Beth. There have been plenty of times that we did not have money to give, but that’s not always what people need, is it? :)

Shelli January 14, 2013 at 6:14 pm
