“The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.” -Charles Dubois*
charles is a wise man. his words are my goal in the challenge. in giving up our love of shopping for six months, kat and i are giving up what we are to see what we could become. i hope to come out on the other side of this with not only a refined style, but a changed heart and a stockpile of the money i would have spent on myself to spend on others.
i’m praying every day that God would show me what to do with that money. i know it will go toward some sort of ministry. i have a sneaking suspicion that Maria’s Big House of Hope may play some part. my in-laws currently live in china and my mom-in-law is working with them to put together a cookbook they’ll sell to raise money. she gave me this book for christmas and i can’t seem to put it down.
