I’m Not OK With That

There comes a time when an individual is called to action.  When a blessing has been bestowed, it seems only natural to give back. 

Now is the time. 

My blog began as an virtual scrapbook of the daily events that breezed through my reality.  It was launched to provide a place to organize a chronological journal of my kids. 

It morphed into a tutorial of sorts -- to save time instead of emailing the same recipes over and over and over again to inquiring minds. 

God kept giving me new ideas.  As He did, I found that my blog began to grow and became a resource (and hopefully a refuge).  The moment I begin to blog on my own agenda, I discover that you, my reader, lose interest. 

This blog is by no means a money maker.  I would imagine that the time I spend planning, writing, editing, answering emails, and responding to comments far outweighs the minimal paycheck I receive from my various affiliates. 

But I am doing what God has called me to.  I love to write.  And when I can write with my fingers to express what is in my heart, I experience God’s pleasure.  Whether or not my writing is good -- I write as an offering unto the Lord.

However, I have been called to step out into something way beyond myself.   It makes me nervous.  I feel grossly inadequate. I am writing for One Verse.  I am a One Verse Blogger and I’m passionate about making sure that the Vidunda people receive a translation of the Bible in their language. 

OneVerse Blogger 

The work began in 2009 and is expected to be completed in 2015.

Today, the Granola Mom 4 God blog is an official partner with One Verse.  What does this mean?  Each time  you purchase something from one of my affiliate links, such as All About Reading, Aquasana, Vitamix, Little Passports, Pick and Draw, GAPS monthly menu plans,  or even Amazon . . . I earn money. 

But know that I tithe that money.

So your money will go towards Bible translation . . . indirectly.

For $26 a month (5 Starbucks) you could join with me and sponsor the Vidunda people group

In the coming months, I will host a link for you to share what Bible verse you helped translate that month and how that verse has impacted you. 

So . . . head on over to One Verse.

And I am once again inviting you to join with me. 

It will take you less than 5 minutes, but that 5 minutes has the potential to impact someone for eternity.
