Wow Make A Difference Mondays has kinda rocked my world. Case in point: Haven’t blogged all week since the launch post 😉 Something about being wowed by the words of a total of thirty women kept me happily in reading mode rather than writing mode this past week! That and the many emails flying back and forth between the women I have been so blessed by as they worked together to make this dream a reality, have me just so, so grateful. Not so long ago, this project could’ve seemed like nothing more than just a pie in the sky dream – but if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it is when you put your faith in the One who is far bigger than you and seek to honor Him with your words and actions, He oftentimes showers blessings in ways bigger and better than anticipated! That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9
This week I am compelled to action in a way I realistically may not have been before my newfound accountability in #MADMlinkup. As much as I would have wanted to, I likely would never have gotten around to sending the letter I wrote to a man who made a difference in my life recently. Just as much as I believe in making a difference with what God has given us, where He has placed us – I believe in letting others know when they have made a difference and thanking them for it. So with that, I have decided to send my letter, Dear Arbys Angel to hopefully make a small difference in the day of someone who clearly has such a heart for serving others!
We would be so humbled and happy if you would like to read and write along with us, so that we may encourage one another toward acts of service that make a difference right in our own spheres of influence. Here’s the low-down: There will be six women regularly co-hosting this link-up that will appear on all six of our blogs and we also have three wonderful co-hosts who will fill in as guest hosts on the occasional day that a regular co-host is not able to post. Read on to learn more about our vision, mission, and how to link up!
The above is who we are, but we want to know who YOU are! If you are here from the link-up and perhaps we’ve not yet met, if you have a moment, would you do me a HUGE kindness and introduce yourself? 🙂 Tell me about how you ended up here, tell me about your family, tell me about what you’re passionate about, tell me if there’s anything I can do for you – whatever it is just know you are wanted and you are loved here! As always, please comment or email any prayer requests too! XO

Love it!! (love you!)
Big happy-heart hugs! Love you Marianne!
It’s amazing what the online world brings to our lives! Thanks for sharing!
It really is amazing! Thanks for being here, you make the online world that much more awesome, Wendy!!
I love watching God do the big things I think are only pipe dreams! This is a great idea!
Yes, that is the very best!! Your comment made my day, thanks for that encouragement : )
Thank you for this platform for encouragement! I have shared a post (Turn the World Upside Down! Lessons from Muslims) challenging Christian women to be bold in their stand for Christianity so they can make a difference–living with purpose and conviction!
I was born and raised in Australia, and am now married to an American missionary, living in Singapore and learning how to live a healthy and balanced life wherever I go! I love to talk about my faith, family, food and fitness almost incessantly–these are my passions in life. It has been told me that at least half of all the conversations I engage in are about food… which is probably true.
Looking forward to seeing some good encouaging stuff!
Thanks so much for visiting and linking up! Thank you so much for taking the time to write, I am off to find your post! : )
This is great. Do you send out emails as a reminder to your link up?
Not just yet, but we’ve talked about that – may try to do that soon! Thanks for asking and for visiting shelivesfree.com! : )
So glad you got your link-up up & running! So cool & so excited to be involved! Also, love the image- we do have influence right where we are. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks so much Sarah! You’re awesome and I’m so glad you’re involved too : ) I feel blessed beyond compare to be running this link-up with such an amazing group of women and we pray God will use it for His glory!
Love meeting other like-minded bloggers! Thx so much for hosting this, Rachael @ Diamonds in the Rough
Agreed, so nice to meet you! Thanks for being here : )
Quick Question: I linked up a post but can’t view anyone else’s…am I doing something wrong?
Oh sorry about that, but I’m glad you asked because you’re fine and not doing something wrong! ; ) I have experienced the same for some reason a few times but have found that they are all immediately visible if they click the link that says “An InLinkz Link-Up” Let me know if there’s any other trouble or I can help with anything else! : )
This is so wonderful, thank you for hosting! I’m so excited to link up in the future. I’m so glad you’re already learning lots from hosting this. 🙂
Thanks so much, Kailey! So excited you’ll be joining us! : )
Now this is a link up and a mission I’d love to be involved with! Thanks to you and all the bloggers involved for offering this resource.
That is so kind of you Linda, thanks so much for sharing our excitement and getting on board with our mission : ) Looking forward to seeing you back soon!
