Hey hey and welcome to another edition of Make A Difference Mondays where we get intentional about starting our weeks focused on the positive and put our heads together to dream up ways we can make a difference in this world!

So I’ve had it on my heart for awhile now to get more intentional about the way I interact with customer service folks on any given day. Sure, like most of us, I make an effort to ask how they’re doing when I am asked how I am. Sometimes I may even ask first. I smile, say hello and so on. But I am so often distracted and preoccupied with what is going on in my own life, I don’t often strike up much of a conversation. All despite my true desire to really see and know the people I cross paths with.

Hebrews 13:2 NLT says, “Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it.” Wow! Most of us are captivated by this knowledge, yet how often do really stop to think about it? How often do we imagine that each time we interact with a stranger is not by accident, but a possibility for a divine appointment?

A big goal of mine right now is to live life more intentionally and this week, I am choosing to intentionally keep Hebrews 13:2 at the forefront of my mind, act on it, and be ready for whatever God has planned! If this is something you have done before or are inspired to join me in this week, would you let me know below, in the comments?


Make A Difference Mondays is a weekly linkup designed to encourage and inspire us to live each day on purpose—making a meaningful difference in someone’s life in even the smallest of ways. There will be five women regularly co-hosting this link-up that will appear on all five 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!

Our mission is to provide a consistent gathering place for like-minded women to build online connections, share inspiration, and provide mutual encouragement and accountability as we seek to live intentionally and make a difference in the lives of those around us.
Every Monday we will invite bloggers to link-up any blog posts that encourage women to live life on purpose. This could include testimonies or goals from your own life, small acts of kindness or service, creative tips or ideas for showing consideration to others — the possibilities are endless. Our objective is to use our God-given time and resources to His glory!

Also, just a heads-up: the Make A Difference Mondays team has created two fun new ways to keep us all connected! Now we have our own facebook community group to stay in touch beyond the blog posts AND we also have a new #MADMlinkup group Pinterest board and we will be pinning our favorite posts from the linkup that inspire and encourage us to make a difference. We are so grateful for you and would love for all of you to join us for fellowship in the above linked community group and you can follow the Pinterest board right here to watch for your posts:
