Hi!!  Do you have any idea how glad I am to see you?  Just picture me with a smile on my face, fired up about the great things happening in the Make A Difference Mondays community  🙂  Yep, that’s me and that’s the truth.  So, thank you for being here! This place wouldn’t be the same without you, and it wouldn’t be the same without the amazing women I want to introduce you to today in this MADM Meet & Greet #2.  You can hear their hearts and read a bit of their stories in their own words below.  Please cheer them on with me in the comments and take a few minutes to read more about them on their own web homes today.  If you are inspired to share and would like to participate in the next community Meet & Greet, send me an email anytime at sybil@shelivesfree.com.  Thanks friends!

Hello, I’m Bethany and I find joy in the small things in life at The Southern Couture. There is a certain happiness and satisfaction in imagining a new craft or project and then being able to create it yourself. I enjoy craft projects from sewing, paper-crafting including cards and stamps, mod podge, Cricut projects, scrapbooking, and just about any other craft you can imagine. Even as a young girl, I enjoyed crafting and being able to learn new skills. This love has continued to grow over the years.I am always planning for the next DIY décor, gifts, recipes, and much more.

Hi, I’m Tara Sanders the blogger behind “Vintage & Soul.” I combined my love for all things vintage with my passion for cooking and social justice. I have had other blogs before, but this one I think best emulates who I am at the core. You can find me atwww.tarajsanders.com.  When I am not blogging, I enjoy collaborating on creative projects with my super talented graphic designer husband, singing on our church’s worship team, and sipping cappuccino at hipster coffee shops. I have a huge heart for women and have recently started volunteering at a crisis pregnancy center where God has opened my eyes to vital needs in my own community. Those women have shattered my preconceived ideas and taught me to love unconditionally especially when it’s hard.  Also, we are expecting our first child in February of 2015, so life is about to get even more exciting!

Hello, my name is Kerry and I own Livi Joy (http://www.livijoy.storenvy.com).  I am wife to Denny, mama to Alivea and Toby, and I am passionate about orphan care and adoption.  We are a family built by adoption and we desire to see more people encouraged to open their hearts and homes to orphans.  The goal of our family business is to partner with another family who is currently adopting and walk with them on their journey.  We sell tees for the whole family in our online store and every purchase helps our partner family.

Hi!  I am Stasia and my little corner of the Internet is Our Life on a Budget.  My husband is a college pastor and we have a daughter who is 18 months old (a little firecracker if I do say so myself). My hope is to share Christ with people through our family, frugality and life tips.  That reading would be an encouragement and motivation to action.  BLOG | FACEBOOK | TWITTER INSTAGRAM | PINTEREST BLOGLOVIN’


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!
Have you found us on facebook yet?  If not, what are you waiting for?  😉
