Looking for a way to bless your family this month and beyond? Start a Contributor Journal for each member of the family!
What are Contributor Journals? They’re an easy, fun way to stay connected to your family. A Contributor Journal is a book where you write quick, encouraging messages to someone else. It can be a Bible verse, a thank you note, a quote – something to build the other person up or tell them what they mean to you. With your family writing in each other’s Contributor Journals, you’ll be able to bless each other in a totally new way.
Start your Contributor Journals today! Here are some tips for getting started:
- Get a blank journal for each family member and have them write their names on it.
- Place the journals somewhere in the house that your family uses every day (i.e. kitchen counter, living room table).
- Begin writing in each other’s journals as much as you can – it doesn’t have to be long, as long as it’s from the heart!
- Read your own journal to see all the things your family has blessed you with.
Take the ‘Live It’ challenge!
Bring Your Bible to School Day is a nationwide, student-led event that happens on the first Thursday of every October. The 2020 event will take place on Thursday, October 1. This event empowers Christian students of all ages to take the lead in speaking God’s grace and truth into the culture around them by taking one simple step — bringing their Bible to school and talking about it with friends.
The event allows students to live out their faith in a positive, practical way. With that in mind, we’ve started the ‘Live It’ Challenge as the next step from Bring Your Bible to School Day: monthly challenges that will help students and families keep the movement going throughout the whole year!
Each month, we’ll be sending out questions based around that month’s ‘Live It’ theme (like “Overcoming Fear” or “Sharing God’s Love”). Think about the questions and then discuss them with your family or friends.
Then, get ready to receive that month’s official ‘Live It’ challenge — practical ways you can live out your faith all year long!
Take the Challenge
Go to Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, or this website to discover the monthly ‘Live It’ Challenge, which will become available near the beginning of each month. Each month has two challenges based on that month’s theme — a challenge for you to do on your own or with friends, and a challenge for your family to do together.
