I just finished reading the most amazing book.  It is called 7 an experimental mutiny against excess by Jen Hatmker.

This book is challenging me to look at my life and to see if I am really living as Jesus would.  Of course none of us can be perfect like Him, but can my heart and actions be more like His?  I think I can do better.  I want my life to be more about enjoying my blessings and more about sharing my blessings.  I want my heart to be drawn to do better, do more, love more, serve more, care more. I want it to be more natural for me to give, sacrifice, and love.  I want to not only think of my own wants and desires, but to look at those around me that could meet Jesus through my acts of love and service.  I am asking God to show me the areas I can be a blessing. To send the people my way that I can help, love, and serve.  I'm not gonna lie, its a little scary cause I'm not sure what that might require me to sacrifice, but I don't want to live a life that only focuses on myself and want I desire any longer.
Here are some webistes of companies with a conscience as Jen Hatmaker puts it.  Maybe we can try supporting these organizations by buying gifts for family friends, etc. from organizations that are making an eternal difference, instead of just wasting our money in ways that mean nothing.
