You might remember a few weeks back when we talked about the platform of Instagram as an opportunity for global impact. One example I shared of a person leveraging Instagram in just such a way was the wonderful Gretchen from Life Lived Beautifully. I was delighted when a friend of Gretchen’s found my post and told me she loved it because the heart of the post and of this community so aligns with the mission of her ministry called Bought Beautifully.
Naturally, I fell in love with Bought Beautifully the more I learned about what they do. The mission of Bought Beautifully is to create a Christ centered economy where consumers can intentionally purchase products that impact the world for Christ. They represent 22 vendors from around the world who are using their business to positively impact the world and they want to get these inspiring business owner’s products in more people’s hands! All vendors on Bought Beautifully know their supply chain, pay fair wages, prioritize safe working conditions, and practice wise stewardship. We would love for you to take a few minutes to get to know more about the heart of this unique ministry:
Make A Difference Mondays is a weekly linkup designed to encourage and inspire us to live each day on purpose by making a meaningful difference in someone’s life in even the smallest of ways. 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 post that encourages 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: we have 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:
Wow, this is such a great idea! I love the purpose and mission behind it. I cohost a linkup called Cup of Creative which helps encourage aspiring creatives to keep following after their dreams. I love how there is a movement of living life on purpose going on! It’s so fun to watch!
Love that! Thanks for sharing, Jenna 🙂
I work for a small family owned company, so supporting local (often small) businesses is very important to us and our community. When I find myself shopping online, I often try to find small businesses to support as well. Thank you for sharing the message of supporting small business 🙂
You rock! Thanks for sharing Michelle!
I couldn’t comment on the link in front of mine because I don’t use disqus but I did send her a tweet 🙂
This is awesome!! What a cool idea. Amen to spreading the glory of God.
