Everyday Confetti: How To #LetGodLove {others} Through Us

Screen Shot 2014-02-21 at 2.27.51 PM


Every year my calendar gets filled with busy days, holidays, birthdays and lots of ordinary days in-between
! 
And every January, I tell myself… “I want this year to be different. I want us to make more memories, and make a difference together, as a familyJoshua and Andrew are already sixteen and nineteen. I’ve got to get more intentional before they move out!”

Do you ever have conversations like that with yourself, or is it just me?

I have such great intentions of getting more organized and creative, but then, every month it seems my intentions get trumped by the busyness of life! Well, I found us some help! My friends Karen Ehman and Glynnis Whitwer have done the creative planning, organizing and simplifying for us in their new go-to guide, Everyday Confetti! 

Today Karen stopped by to be part of my #LetGodLoveYou series! She’s giving us glimpse of the goodness inside Everyday Confetti and share “A Few Simple Ways To Sprinkle God’s LOVE”! PLUS I’ve got a copy of the book to giveaway too!

Simple Ways To Sprinkle God’s LOVE

First, create small tags with Bible verses about God’s love on them. Here are a few to use:

  • See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! 1 John 3:1
  • And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. 1 John 4:16a
  • We love because he first loved us. 1 John 4:19

Attach a tag to any of these ideas to sprinkle God’s love on those around you:

    • Purchase coffee house gift cards and attached a tag to each. Go to a hospital waiting room and hand them out to folks who look like they could use a good cup of coffee.
    • Take your kids to the grocery store and offer to carry out the groceries for elderly people you see. Hand them a note of kindness with a tag attached.
    • Purchase gift cards for local restaurants that deliver and attach tags to them. Take a few to your pastor or church secretary so they can order lunch to be brought in on busy days.
    • Place a candy bar or homemade treat with a tag in your mailbox for the mail carrier.
    • Have young children {or grandchildren} color pictures or paint some adding glitter and stickers. Write one of the verses above on the picture. Then, take them to the local nursing home and hand them out.
    • If you live in an area with lots of snow on the ground, make snowmen outside of the windows of a nursing home or hospital children’s ward. {Be sure to get permission first}
    • Hand a tag to the worker at the drive-through window and pay for the person’s order behind you. Ask the worker to give the tag to the person with their food.
    • Create a fruit or vegetable tray and attach a tag and a bow on top. Take it to the local police or fire station thanking them for their hard work!
    • Take a plate of homemade goodies to your child’s teacher’s lounge at school with a tag attached.
    • Leave a note of encouragement and a verse on Facebook for a friend you haven’t seen in a while.

Comments

  1. Thank you for the reminder that the simple things are still very much appreciated, needed and not hard to fit into busy schedules! Blessings!

    • My hubby, Ron Smith and I are often attempting to do multiple things at once. Naturally, we just ♥ to help others out whenever and however we possibly can. Ultimately, it seem…s like my husband’s family doesn’t seem to remember his birthday. My husband doesn’t get any phone clls on his birthday whatsoever. Isn’t that a sad way of life for him? I don’t forget his birthday whatsoever. I ♥ my incredible boy way too much to forget about the important things that take place throughout his entire lifetime. I ♥ him. “Every year my calendar gets filled with busy days, holidays, birthdays and lots of ordinary days in-between! And every January, I tell myself, ”I want this year to be different. I want us to make more memories, and make a difference together, as a family. Joshua and Andrew are already sixteen and nineteen. I’ve got to get more intentional before they move out!”

      Do you ever have conversations like that with yourself, or is it just me?
      I have such great intentions of getting more organized and creative, but then, every month it seems my intentions get trumped by the busyness of life! Well,~ “Renee Swope Ultimately, every aspect of our life can be busy in some way, shape, or form. God only wants us to focus on who He really is. God wants to shower His ultimate ♥ upon us. My ultimate goal is to include God in on whatever goes on in my life.

      • Thank you Renee,
        God’s timing is perfect! I needed to have your words of encouragement and uplifting heart and there you were inviting me on Facebook. Thank you.

  2. Thanks for encouraging me to encourage others!

  3. I leave stickie notes on the bathroom mirror. I got my granddaughter to leave a stickie note for her dad, my son, on his bedroom door. I sometimes like to do “hidden” notes so the recipient would be surprised.

  4. Tina Miszewski says:

    I have seen random small acts of kindness make a huge difference in people believing that God exists.I’d love to win this book for more ideas.

  5. I’d love a copy of this book because there is no such thing as a “pause” button! My boys are 8 and 4 and the days and weeks are flying by. I’m trying to capture every memory I can and treasure them up in my heart, just like Mary. Thanks for the post!

  6. What a great way to share God’s love with others!

  7. Actually, yes, I can relate! I have a son that is 13 and a daughter that is 17. I want so much to be the mom you described and teach our children to give back and more than just at Christmas. So, I would love a copy of the book to encourage us to get out and get going! I would like to share a story that has inspired me to try again…
    One day last summer, I wanted to spend some “valuable” time with the kids and decided to have a random act of kindness day. So, the challenge was for us each to come up with a random act and then spend our day together performing these acts. So, we did! What a blessing and a wonderful memory!! Act one: go buy a plant and take it to a precious elderly woman from our church and thank her for the inspiration she is to each of us! Act two: take a box of sidewalk chalk and “tag” peoples sidewalks or driveways with the following message, God Loves you and so do we! Act three: took a cooler of cold water bottles around and deliver to men/women working outdoors. All I know to say is God is good, and rewards our simple efforts more than we can ever imagine! I look forward to doing this again and making memories wit our children. The issue just seems to be making time to carry it out. So, thanks for affirming what we know is true…sharing God’s love!

  8. I would LOVE to win this book because I am so NOT creative. We are praying for a four-year old, Ben, who is fighting brain cancer. I am sitting here praying about what I could do for the family. Nothing seems like enough. Well, of course God popped your blog for the day into my email at just the right moment! Even if I don’t win, I am so thankful to be reminded that every little gesture would be appreciated. I can do any one of the ideas mentioned and I’m sure doing something, anything, is much better than thinking about what to do and deciding to do nothing. God is so good! Thank you.

  9. Miss Mary T says:

    Renee I have been hoping to read this book! Both of my grandsons have birthdays in February within a week and prior to Valentine’s Day. Almost every February, I think that somehow we need to incorporate winter and love, hearts and snow to celebrate. My oldest grandson is medically fragile and every birthday is one more than the drs said there would be. So I was hoping to find some ideas that we could use….thx for the chance to win!

  10. Jolene Pittman says:

    I would really love to get Everyday Confetti for ideas to share Gods love to family, friends, and to the world. Sounds awesome.

  11. I would love to win a copy because I’m terrible with ideas to celebrate with! I get stressed over holidays and want to make everything special, over the top special. I would love to have some easy and simple ways.

  12. Love the idea of learning some easy creative gift and celebration ideas. Surely hope I win.

  13. i would love to get a copy of this book. First, I love to read everything Glynnis and Karen write. Secondly, I have already begun trying to be more intentional this year but sometimes lack ideas. This book would be a great resource for me and my family!

  14. Jacqueline O'Connor says:

    What a great idea! I have an 18 year old who’s headed off to college in the fall and have just a few months to make a difference together as a family. I would love a copy of this book!

  15. I love these ideas. I love doing things like this but I also am not very creative in thinking of ways to do it. I am going to do some of these right away!! Tomorrow my mail carrier will have a treat in the box for him!! 🙂
    If I don’t win the book I will definitly be buying a copy!!! God Bless you Karen and Glynnis for writing a book like this and thanks Renee for telling us about it!! ♥

  16. I am in need of encouraging words this time in my life for restoring my faith and Hope I’m the situation I am going through cindy

  17. I’d love a copy of the book so I could sprinkle ‘special’ every where I go! I’m not very creative and this would make it a whole lot easier to be able to do nice things for others. Thank you for the wonderful ideas you shared in your post. I’m off to get started… 😀

  18. Erica Walker says:

    I LOVE the ideas presented! I just signed up to help with my church’s Ronald McDonald house ministry, and these would be excellent ideas to take to the parents and children! The sprinkle confetti idea is just awesome…confetti of God’s love! Thank you for sharing. I’d love to read the rest of the book.

  19. Courtney J says:

    Hi Renee! I would love to have a copy of Everyday Confetti to get new ideas for gatherings and doing something special to make someone’s day. I love hosting, but I am out of creative ideas! I believe this book can give me some awesome ideas!

  20. You are so not alone! In fact, I want to thank you for letting me know that I am not alone! I have 3 girls – 22, 16, 13. The oldest got engaged on Christmas Eve. She is stll living at home, but what time do I stell have with her? I work full-time and home-school the other two, talk about crazy, busy days!!! I would very much like a copy of “Everyday Confetti” for two reasons. First, it will help me make special memories with my family. Second. the Women’s Ministries leaders at my church just launched Secret Sisters. My girls and I participated. So we each have a name of another woman at church that we are to pray for and do little things for. That’s where this book will come in handy. If I have some ideas to go to and don’t have to think of them myself, then I and my girls will have an easier time of making our Secret Sisters feel loved and special. Thank you for all you do! Your blog and devotionals truly “hit the spot” and refresh my parched soul!

  21. I want to read this book because the people I love deserve it! I could always use more stress free celebrations in my life!

  22. My women’s group at church is doing a love revolution! It would be amazing to share these ideas! Not to mention I’m always looking for creative ways to bless others’ what a fun book idea.

  23. Krystal Kirk says:

    I would like to win this so I can have some practice and stress free way to bless those around me! I love the idea about the tags and will definitely be making some in the near future. That’s such a simple yet sincere way to share the truth of Christ’s amazing love, forgiveness and salvation! Thanks for sharing this!

  24. Lesley Geer says:

    I text my husband a verse about love every morning.

  25. I would like to have this book to help me spread God’s love at work.

  26. Thanks so much for this. Even after your kids are grown and gone it seems like there is no time
    for what you really want to do. Would love to win this. These are great ideas especially for schools and police and fire depts. Sometimes I wonder if they think these are thankless jobs. We shouldn’t let them feel that way. They do some much for us all every day. Thanks again. Jean

  27. Barbara R. says:

    After reading today’s excerpt, I would be thrilled to win a copy of this book! What practical and clever ideas that could easily be accomplished!!!

  28. Thank You!

  29. I like to make little cake hearts with celebration sprinkles I freeze em and I always have them ready to spread the love of The Lord in a shape of his heart, it’s a treat to share for the sick, sad people at musing homes and always for my brothers and sisters in Christ who need that extra feta net that there not alone

  30. Sherri Smith says:

    What an awesome idea, and I would love to read this book!

  31. What a wonderful idea! I love the title “Everyday Confetti” and it instantly grabs my attention. I haven’t even read the book and already I’m wondering how to add the brightness of confetti to another person’s day. My dad taught me “the most noble deed it to improve the quality of another man’s day” and this book sounds perfect for that very deed!

  32. Debbie Herbst says:

    Sounds like fun and I love the uplifting idea of simple ways to think of others.

  33. “Sprinkle special” on each day. Love the wording. Such sweet creative ideas. 🙂 Thank you.

  34. Kathi Whittamore says:

    I can’t wait to read your new book! Thank you for the encouragement to love others no matter what’s going on around us. We should love as Jesus loved/loves us!

  35. What an awesome way to show God’s love and plant seeds in those around us! Thank you for a great way to spread the loving word of God!

  36. I have that conversation with myself – All. The. Time! Love the idea of sprinkling “special” onto the everyday!

  37. Sounds like I’m at the same stage of the journey as you are-wanting to make the most of the days I have left with my boys before they move on. Just need the ideas to get me going sometimes. All about making memories! Thanks for sharing.

  38. I need all the help I can get! 🙂

  39. We could all use more joy. Grandmonsters are electronic free at my house. I’ve had the honor to help raise over 20 children. Would love to have the book for our summer break to show them small things and time are the best gift!

  40. Sonja Bailey says:

    What wonderful ways to lift others up in a kind way spreading love…just like the icing on a cake …

  41. I would so enjoy using Everyday Confetti and sharing the ideas with my children and ladies group! I seem to come up with creative ideas AFTER the opportunity to bless passed 🙁 Owning such a resource would enable me to be on top of making opportunities for myself, and others, to be a blessing. And that is why I would appreciate a copy 🙂

  42. Would love to win a copy of this book. We never seem to make the most of opportunities to “bless” others. Am sure everyone can use some ideas. Sounds like a great book with super ideas.

  43. Terri Karslo says:

    Thank you for additional idea’s to bring joy into other’s lives. One of my favorite things to do is buy boxes of encouragement cards and mail them to people I know for no reason at all.

  44. This book sounds like jsut what I need. Thanks for the encouraging words!

  45. I love those ideas you already shared and want to bless others, sometimes just not sure how to go about it.

  46. Memories are so important to everyone! What do most people talk about when they get older – their memories of when they were young. This book sounds like it has some great ideas to make such beautiful memories. I’m a grandma to 6 beautiful granchildren in 3 different kids’ families and I pray I am making memories for them!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win this book. 🙂
    Blessings to you!
    Susan

  47. Janet Daniel says:

    Creating memories with our children are so special.
    I love he ideas you mentioned. I just thought of someone
    who has lost her husband recently. I believe this is a great
    Way to show God’s love to others. I would love to give this book to
    my friend!
    Thanks! Janet

  48. Hospitality…..that is our goal this year at church. I chair the hospitality committee and want to involve the children’s classes and the ladies’ group. I make bookmarks that my pastor shares, each with a stamped or handwritten Biblical message. I make cards, b’day, get well, sympathy, etc. for my family and friends. I do random acts of kindness. I lost a first cousin (cancer) and a second cousin (heart attack) this morning and plan to take cakes to their services tomorrow night. Instead of buying flowers, I use baskets, arrange a quilt in it, accent with silk flowers and a handmade tag and include a handmade sympathy card. This way the money spent goes to something usable. I would certainly put the book to good use. I hope I win. I hope I have given people good ideas to share God’s love.

  49. Love the simple ideas to encourage or brighten someone’s day!

    Thanks!

    Jennifer

  50. I used to love to do this, I still do.

  51. Melanie at Only a Breath says:

    I love this!!! I would love to win a copy to learn how I can show God’s love to others in practical ways — with my kids!! 🙂

  52. Would love to win this to continue to share God’s love in more creative fun ways.

  53. Looks like a great book with lots of great ideas 🙂
    Would love to win!

  54. I could totally learn to stop, be still and learn to appreciate Gods goodness a bit more!

  55. Shawnia Holler says:

    Love this! A great way to share Gods love with others.

  56. April Bryant says:

    I have five children ages 24, 16, 14, 13, 12 and 3 grandchildren ages 3 and twins that are 1. I work as a 911 dispatch supervisor and I have crazy work schedules. I too want to instill in my children and grandchildren a selfless love for others. I would love to utilize ideas in this book to help me accomplish that goal.

  57. I have picked 8 women this year to randomly bless throughout the year. I have already done one thing and the next project is to send them 4 packets of seeds to plant some flowers that will grow in their area. I plan on sending out in the coming week to enable them to have a chance to get the seeds to germinate. It would be helpful to find more ideas from your book to be able to celebrate these women. I include a scripture before sending something to them. Usually before I send to them, I pray over each person’s name and unless I get a specific scripture, I use the same one for each. I don’t know if the next project will include all 8 or one individual or just a few as I wait on the Lord for direction. It is exciting to see how God directs my path. So far, nothing has been too costly and that is what I like best since I am on a strict budget and this has to come from my grocery budget – which God provides for as well.

  58. I must admit, this is just up my alley! I love to do things like this, my creative side of me comes out. Right now, I am decorating jars…I cannot believe it. I have put ribbons around them and a cross on the front, then I used some of your tags with a Bible verse on them. I filled them with different things…like colored tacks, clips and little sticky notes, even a tiny stapler and staples. Also, I used handkerchiefs inside my jars to bring out the color, it matched my ribbons. I use small soaps, shampoo, finger nail file, etc in another jar.
    Just had fun with it.
    Another time I decorated with min-canvas on stands and used Bible verses which were on stickers that were clear. I have also decorated with keys…old and new. I went to the store to get there throw away keys to put on the tables. Used ribbon around the old keys. Just some of the ideas I came up with.
    I have paid for a Veteran’s lunch, handed out bottles of water to the homeless, given out clothes to the needy, given little children money, and helped the pregnancy center. This year I am helping support children in OKC who need a free lunch. Just love to do things that help others. I don’t have a lot of money so I try to get other ladies to help me and we try to do something really special at least once a year at our annual church brunch.

  59. Great ideas .It is often the “small” things that make our day

  60. What an awesome way to sprinkle God’s love to others, thank you for sharing. I would love to win your book to spread God’s love to others in creative ways, to people all around me, sorta like secrect pals at work and a opportunity to give to the comunity
    Thanks so much for the opportunity to win. 🙂 God Bless

  61. jaime fisher-starnes says:

    I would like to start new traditions with my family. My husband and I were blessed with our last child in 2011 ( I was 41 and he was 53). Our other children were both in their late teens and grown. This has been a new beginning for the three of us. Besides having my daughter, we relocated from North Carolina to a small ranching community in Edna, Texas.
    Because this is a new chapter in our lives, this is my chance to fulfill the purpose that God has for me, which is to raise my child to know Him (not only about Him). I have read A Confident Heart as an online bible study with Proverbs 31 Ministry with Melissa Taylor and Lyra TerKeurst. I cannot emphasii how your book with the bible study has changed my view on God, my family, and myself. Your book Everyday Confetti will be a great addition to mine and my family’s daily walk with the Lord.

  62. This book sounds like it would have some neat ideas to add variety to life. It seems like fun ideas to spread with others. I always (if I even think of them) think of something that would be fun way after the time I need it. I am very plain, boring so this sounds like something that would be different for me.

  63. I love this idea. Although we have done things like this before, we need to be more intentional. This book would be a great resource.

  64. great ideas

  65. I love this!! I enjoy showing God’s love to others and would love this book to get creative ideas! We moved recently and we are meeting many new people that we could sprinkle God’s love on. 🙂

  66. My daughters are 20 and 23. One is married and the other one has moved out also. My empty nest reactions are overwhelming to them. I need just simple things I can do to let them know I am thinking of them and love them. Maybe this would put salve on this momma’s heart!

  67. This is a wonderful, thought way to bring joy to others! I am always trying to think of little things like this to do and all to often come up blank. What a awesome resource to have!

  68. Looks like this book is filled with some fabulous ways to share God’s love with others. I have Karen’s book, “A Life that Says Welcome” and it was fabulous! I imagine this one is packed with wonderful ideas too!

  69. Laura Koch says:

    What a great way to help lift yourself and someone else up! Thank you!

  70. This book sounds wonderful, thank you!

  71. Kimberly Burch says:

    I would love to have this book for fresh new ideas to celebrate every day.

  72. This book sounds like just what I need!!!

  73. When you have the privilege to bless someone , even in small ways, it be becomes a “life. changer ” you never think the same way again. I love, love what I have seen of your book!
    Thank you for this book! It will bless so many people!

  74. Lana Archer says:

    I would love to win this book because I like you have a lot of dates to remember. I also work for a preschool and you never want to forget their birthday or any special day for the family. I sure hope I win one some of these ideas were really great I think I was going to try them

  75. What a great idea. I need ideas. My husband and I have been in ministry for 40 years this coming June. I need new ideas for new ways of reaching out to people. I’m trying to keep up with technology and young people, but feel like I’m going against a rapid river of information and new ideas. I need help. I don’t want to be stuck in the past.

  76. I REALLY NEED THIS BOOK BECAUSE I ALWAYS WANT TO MAKE SPECIAL DAYS SPECIAL BUT I JUST CAN NEVER THINK OF HOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  77. This is exactly what I think multiple times a day!! Thank you!!

  78. I am looking for creative ways to serve others and be more Christlike in the process. I also want to teach my son to love others as God loves us everyday 🙂

  79. I love looking for creative ways to celebrate others and this book sounds so helpful.

  80. This is an awesome idea!!!! This would help me get ideas for sharing my faith!!

  81. I especially appreciated the ideas for the postal worker, firefighters/police officers – what a great way to say thanks! I made crockpot candy before Christmas & gave goodie bags to the neighbors & postman. I pick up small hand creams & lip balms, put them in ‘seasonal’ gift bags & pass them out randomly to people at our church – you should see the way they light up! I’d love to read the book & get more ideas on how to bless others! Thanks much!

  82. Vivian Ricks says:

    I think this is an excellent idea for a book! I am currently leading a women’s Bible Study and we have been talking about how we can share love, hope, encouragement, and joy with others…thinking of ways to bless people we know and people we do not know personally ,but could use a good dose of kindness to show God’s love. We are His hands here on Earth.

    I would be thrilled to receive a book and pass it along to the ladies in my study.

    Many blessings,
    Vivian

  83. Michelle Stevens says:

    These are wonderful ideas for everyday as well as gift ideas! Thank you for sharing!

  84. Chris Kraemer says:

    Thank you for sharing this. I so desperately need ideas and ways to celebrate and encourage others. We have a blended family of 8 children, 4 of whom are still at home. The four children at home are 15, 13, 10 and 7. We also have 1 grandBaby. My husband works long hours and is out of town a lot, which means the everyday chorus, upkeep and running kids places falls on me. There never seems to be enough time and I feel guilty a lot that I’m not doing enough to build special memories for the kids. Time is flying by so fast and before we know it all our children will be out on their own. This book sounds like it would give me real practical ways to create meaningful times together and ways to honor and celebrate others. Thank you so much. This is exactly what we busy moms need. God Bless!

  85. Lori Christy says:

    Love these ideas! Every day has something to celebrate!

  86. Nancy Kintsel says:

    I am organized but not creative or artsy…so this would help a lot 🙂

  87. I too want to be organized and not just go Thur the motions of life I want to live it and give and share love and God

  88. I LOVE these ideas – so simply yet able to leave quite an impact on someone (or at least it would for me). I just love this idea and enjoy the encouragement from you ladies!

  89. I absolutely love all of these ideas. Can’t wait to put them into action!

  90. Nothing is more priceless than memories and especially of our lived ones! So to be able to find new, creative ways to make their days special,would simply brighten my day and add to my collection of memories!! I would love to win a copy if your book so that I can dive into it for new creations for 2014 for my five precious grandchildren….there is nothing more special….and even more to he able to have God first in those creations!!! Thank you for the opportunity…. Blessings!!!!

  91. This sounds like a book I could really use a lot! I am so not organized or creative. I have such good intentions to make great memories for my husband and son but I seem to let getting overwhelmed become my norm and than I feel badly about my lack of skills and not having made a huge fuss and celebration for my guys. I would love to surprise them with a creative touch for a change!

  92. Hi! Looks so interesting. Would love to find new ways to dote on the people around me (:
    And that’s one of my favourite verse you’ve got there. “We love because he first loved us.”

  93. In a world where we spend more on screen time than actual face time, this book would be great to help get back to personal relationships. This book could not come at a better time. With raising four small children this book would be dog tailed, highlighted, and carry many post-it notes. Thanks for sharing your ideas on stress free celebration! Sprinkle on!

  94. I love to celebrate, but don’t always have the time or money to do what I’d like. I would love to hear how I can keep it simple AND make it special!

  95. Looks like a great book, Renee! Thank you for sharing it with us :-).

  96. What a wonderful title “Everyday Confetti”! A title and book that my Dear Departed Mom would have loved and appreciated. She was a lady that knew how to spin a little magic for the Holidays. She loved everyone of them and passed her Joy in Celebration on to me as such a Blessed Gift. I have learned over the years too to make a little magic for those that I love, especially my now deceased Daughter, and my Son, but hopefully one day for grandchildren. As a Psychiatric Nurse working with abused and battered kids and teens, and with Alzheimer’s and Dementia Patients, as well as a Trauma – Critical Nurse I am always looking for fresh and new ideas to bring a bit of Joy into my Patients lives, their families lives, and too to the lives of my staff. I think this book would be a helpful solution for when my creative energies are a little bit depleted.

  97. Love these ideas you have shared. Would definitely love to see some more ideas.

  98. Love to surprise others when they least expect it! Thank you for providing this give-a-way… 🙂

  99. I feel like I am the Queen of good intentions! I am always buying cards that somehow don’t ever seem to get mailed. I would love to read this book, I hope it would help me get organized!

  100. Bunny Perry says:

    I am the same way….many good intentions that never see the light of day.
    This would be so helpful for me.

  101. Theresa Clark says:

    What a wonderful way to do something that may turn someone’s day around. To be a noticer!

  102. Loved reading the great tag ideas…..would be great to have the book and see what other wonderful ideas you have for us!!

  103. I love these! I could use this resource to help me obtain my lifelong goal to be a better Christian and to share His love to others!! Thank you for these inspirations!

  104. Oh my!! I just love this!!! I want to love on folks, I just lack the imagination to make it happen like this… This, this is wonderful!!! If I don’t win this book, I’m going to buy it. I may just buy it anyway and if I win it, I’ll gift it to someone… God Bless All of You Renee…

  105. Love spending time this morning reading all of your comments. Grab the confetti & enjoy your time with your loved ones!!!!

  106. This book sounds amazing! I would love to win a copy! What a blessing it will be to someone special. 🙂 with one grown and their own family, one a senior and then our little princess from China, I too desire to be and do more but tend to get caught in the day to day. I love the ideas you shared. Thank you for being a blessing to us all.

  107. Love Random Acts of a Kindness and sharing the love of Jesus through food. I would love some great ideas and this book looks like it has plenty!

  108. Looking forward to your new book.

  109. Nicki Davis says:

    Oh my goodness, I have wanted this book for some time!! I don’t always know where to begin with putting together a way to celebrate someone! This book would be such a blessing!!

  110. This is so out of my comfort zone that I would definitely have to have the prodding of this book to push me to do so.

  111. tiffany mustain says:

    I’d love to be able to teach my 8 year old daughter trtuer meanings of celebrating

  112. I thought maybe I was the only one who for years, every January, made it a part of my New Year’s resolutions, to make holidays, birthdays, etc. more special. Like Renee mentioned, the busyness of life always takes over and by the end of the year, I feel defeated because all my good intentions never amounted to anything. Now, my kids are 29 and 25. Even though they are older and out of the house, I would still like to have some creative ideas as I do not have a crafty or creative bone in my body! I do have 4 precious grandchildren and I would like to start making some wonderful memories for them as well.

  113. Your writing has been a huge blessing to me. May the LORD bless you richly!

  114. I would love this book! Loved Karen’s Let It Go! I have 4 kids – the oldest is a senior & I’m trying to make every minute count! Busy schedules (pediatrician husband, marching band, sports practices & games & music lessons….& then there’s church activities that we love, too!) make being intentional a challenge so I would love the great advice this book would give! I think this book was written “for such a time as this!” Can’t wait to read it!!!

  115. Thanks for the awesome ideas! I’d love to win!

  116. I would love to win this book because I don’t have a bone of hospitality in my body. That verse that says to practice it? Yes, that’s what my poor guests endure–my practicing.

  117. I love to put a little sparkle into our everyday. My mother-in-law has taught me that everyday is a day to celebrate.

  118. Would love to have this. I need some good ideals for celebrating!

  119. I’d love to win a copy of Everyday Confetti!! I’m in need of some new recipes to try out for family gatherings. Thanks so much for an awesome giveaway!!

  120. I’d love to win this book for more ideas on random acts of kindness and other things. Thanks and God bless!!

  121. I do not have a creative bone in my body. Seriously, it is the hardest thing for me to come up with neat ideas but I love to copy the creative juices of someone with that gift. I would love Karen and Glynnis’ new book!

    Thanks for the chance!

  122. Judi Cotignola says:

    I used to love to decorate and entertain, but over three last the years have had to take on a much more stressful job. I am also the women’s ministry director at my church, and do out seems like my own house and family are the last to be decorated or celebrated. I, like Renee, am watching the days fly of the calendar and realize my girls will soon be gone. I would love to have help in c re atjng everyday celebrations to show my family how much I love and appreciate them. Additionally, I think this would be a great theme to share with my women’s group!

  123. I would love to win a copy of this book as I would love to learn to be more creative with celebrating those I love!

  124. What a wonderful to share God’s love with others! Looks like simple ways to bless others.

  125. Melinda Reid says:

    Its nice to show Gods love in different ways because people receive his love differently . I would love this book to get ideas on sharing Gods love with people.

  126. Jody Crawford says:

    Every day should have a reason to celebrate!

  127. Melanie Freisinger says:

    I love getting new ideas to show our Lords love to others! Thanks for all you do

  128. I would love to win a copy of this book because, like you said in your post, I’ve got a calendar packed with reasons to celebrate but a brain that lacks ideas. My one word for this year is Intentional. I don’t think I’ve been very good about living so far and maybe this book can give me some ideas to do just that. I have a wonderful husband of almost 19 years and four great kids still at home (ages 15, 14, 10 & 8) that I’d love to try out these ideas on.

  129. Would love to win a copy of the book!

  130. I would love to win this! I love giving to others and I love that this book gives ideas how to give to others everyday in fun, creative ways! What an awesome way to demonstrate God’s love!

  131. I would love to win a copy!! the examples you shared are great ideas-we’re moving out of the country with the military and I would love to be able to bless new people as well as send special surprises back home to our family!! Thanks for the ideas and opportunity to win!!

  132. I love to make people smile by sharing God’s gifts to me! Everyday is a reason to smile & share with others! But I need done new ideas, please.

  133. After going back to work full time, I feel stretched to make quality time with my family. I want my husband and boys know that I love them in small, encouraging ways. I also would love ideas because there are so many people in my sphere that could use a pick-me-up or a thank you and to know that God loves them.

  134. Love these RAK ideas !
    one that I luv to do in my apartment building – write notes of encouragement in pretty cards and slip under the doors of the elderly…

    Also, pinning the book to my PINTEREST BOARD

    thanks for the intro and giveaway generosity !

  135. What a wonderful way to share the word of GOD and the Love I
    of JESUS .

  136. #Giveaway added to Pinterest at BOOK’D Board

    { TY for hosting the intro and giveaway }

  137. Sue Milligan says:

    I would love to have this book for more inspiring ideas! I already feel uplifted just from reading Renee’s blog entry and this little part of the book! I want to share God’s love in different ways than I may have thought of. Thank you for all that you do!!

  138. What a great book chocked full of ideas! Would love to take and implement some of them with others.

  139. What a great idea for a book. I have 3 children 11, 8, and 4 and would love to have simple ideas to use to show them not only how to spread kindness but share Jesus as well. We have done a few things for nursing homes, etc…. But this less than creative mommy would love fresh ideas! 🙂

  140. Everyday Confetti is so appropriate. I put confetti in all the cards I send to people to lift their spirits. I am always trying to think of ways to bring a little joy into someone’s life so this book would give me the ideas I need. I began putting confetti in cards when my daughter left home right after high school, at 17, to join the Air Force. I then began putting it in all the other cards I sent and send to others. I am known for the confetti I enclose in my cards. I am Director of Senior Adult Sunday School and I am always looking for ideas to bless them and add a little JOY to their lives. We should have a confetti celebration everyday in our lives…..

  141. I would love to win! Any ideas for fun, creative and inexpensive ways to celebrate with family, friends and everyone are always welcome by me! It’s just what I need to help create lasting memories and special times for people!

  142. Elaine Segstro says:

    Our boys have moved away from home, but when they do come home I like to make it an extra special event. This book would provide some great ideas!

  143. Fiona Knight says:

    I would love to win a copy because it isn’t available to buy yet in the UK :-))

  144. I really need to start celebrating the everyday. Life is short, celebrate.

  145. I know that one thing that will help me out of this slump of depression is to do kind things for others. A list of practical ways to do so, rather than just good intentions, i believe would be helpful.

  146. This book sounds like it has so many fun and special ideas! I would love to win a copy!!

  147. Judi Smith says:

    I would like a copy because I would like ideas to bless my friends in mission work in Haiti and the Haitian women they work with at the medical clinic. Thank you Be blessed

  148. I would love a copy so I can share ideas with my Daughter who is my best friend and has been strugkng the lady voud of years to have true Joy in her life!

  149. I would love to be an encouragement to others, and there are so many great ideas to do it in this book!

  150. I would love to win this book… who couldn’t use more ideas for sharing LOVE with those around you! Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂

  151. I need a reason to slow down and bring out the good china these days. I always tend to celebrate, but time to prepare slips away. My youngest will leave the nest before I know it. Sigh. Tonight, my older is coming for dinner, I’m cooking liver, something we all enjoy, bu h isn’t ready to tackle yet. The candles and good china can one out, but how do you elebrate the everyday? I hunk your book will help me,karen

  152. Tammy Monroe says:

    Looks like an awesome book packed full of wonderful ways to spread God’s Love through simple gift of kindness. #kindnessmatters

    I would love to read it and use it to LOVE on others!

    So Thankful for all of you at Proverbs 31!

  153. Jada Smith says:

    So many great ideas that I can use with my teens also! It goes too fast! 🙂

  154. Samantha King says:

    I love the idea of this book! I am all the time trying to think of new ideas to “sprinkle” happiness onto others.

    One of my ideas: I sell Scentsy; I’m blessed to have a very friendly UPS driver who delivers my products to me each month. Every so often I’ll leave a “thank you” note attached to one of my products made for the vehicle. He loves it!

  155. This books looks amazing! It would be a blessing to be able to have more ways to bless others! I would love to get new ideas and it would be great to have them in one place!

  156. Elizabeth Zdrodowski says:

    Would love to win a copy!

  157. What a great idea! I would love go-to ideas to bless others.

  158. Would love to win a copy of this book for new ways to celebrate the every day life.

  159. Lynda Guinnee says:

    I would LOVE a copy of Everyday Confetti ……to help me with my FAMILY celebrations and every day life also….

  160. Karen Miller says:

    Hello Renee, I discovered you through a women’s ministry at my local church, I receive your emails and thoroughly enjoy them. I am on baby steps back to finding the joy in my life after losing my only son, I am slowly trying to give back to those that were so good to my family and I and to continue on the caring, loving and giving spirit that my son had. He would do anything for complete strangers who were in need. I would also like to lead by example for his five year old daughter, who even at her young age is so much like him. This book offers some great ideas to do just that. Thank you!

  161. Jimmie Brackett says:

    I love her books!

  162. Recently, the Lord has been putting it upon my heart to build memories with my children (now 10, 8, & 5). It would be a blessing to have a book to reference. God bless you and all that you do! Your ministry has truly helped me.

  163. Holli Braun says:

    Renee, You are truly an inspiration. I enjoy your messages. The guests you highlight are awesome! I think you have out done yourself with Everyday Confetti. I am so excited to get started with Letting God Love (others) through me. I am going to give a love gift to the man who delivers the local paper at my office on Wednesdays. Thanks again for the inspiration. In His Love, Holli

  164. I would love to have this book. I am not great a coming up with ideas. Just the few ideas mentioned sound wonderful. I already have a few people in mind that I would like to bless with some of the ideas mentioned. I know my grandkids would learn from this book too.

  165. I am very interested in this book! I belong to a group of ladies titled “WinGS” (women in God’s service) and we are always looking for ways to “serve”. I feel this may inspire us to do even more for the Lord!

  166. DeAnna Sexton says:

    Our home is full of boys constantly! Between our 3 sons and the fact that we live across the street from their high school, our home seems to be THE place to hang out. My hubby & I are glad because we feel it is our current ministry to help these young men see/understand what a HOME is. My goal is to celebrate little things and Everyday Confetti could help!!!

  167. I’d love to win!

  168. I think that this book would be a great way to help me as I start a new chapter in a new state and town. It would help me to find ways to maybe make new friends and share God’s love.

  169. Robin Still says:

    What a wonderful book to help spread Gods love to everyone we come in contact with. I would LOVE to read and own this book. Everyone I come in contact with would benifit from this book. May you be blessed as you are a blessing to so many. ~smiles & blessings, Robin 🙂

  170. Suzanne Shotwell says:

    This is the day that the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it! — Ps. 118:24
    Love this book…hope to WIN it! Blessings and Shalom peace (yep, that is double Peace).

  171. Gloria davis says:

    I enjoy you sharing gods word.. Really like to see this book.

  172. This is so amazing in always looking for ways to give back with my girls!

  173. I would love to win this book because as a mama three girls, 18, 15, and 12, it would give me ideas to help them grow into adult years. I’m reading your devotional book of sixty days now on Confident Heart, which I absolute adore.

  174. I can’t even begin to tell you how needed that book is in my life. I have so many great intentions and not one creative bone in my body. 🙂

  175. Simply feeling a little lost right at the moment. This might just lift me while lifting others. Blessings to you!

  176. Love these ladies and how they speak Truth. I imagine their book will be fabulous!

  177. christy osteen says:

    I love some of the ideas about sharing gods word. I may try the message on a candy bar and leaving it in the mail box. Love it.

  178. kristen bowman says:

    I often struggle with feeling like I didn’t do enough, or the kids birthday party wasn’t special enough…or I get wrapped up in something trying to make it memorable and then end up missing another opportunity to love on someone, minister to them or just flat out enjoy the moment. I would love some encouragement in how to balance this out and stop feeling so guilty for not being enough! I know that I am enough…but these struggles get the best of me more times than not. In turn, I would love to be able to share this with the women in my small group in hopes to make us all a little less stressed and more effective in the ways God intended!

  179. I am trying to be more intentional about my days…. Making ordinary days special sounds like a good place to start. You can’t ever have too much love in your life. Thank you for the giveaway. Janita

  180. I don’t often get around to celebrating events and people because I get too caught op trying to come up with the perfect ideas. Some shared ideas would be a help.

  181. A lot of cool ideas ! This book will come in very handy!

  182. Holidays are so stressful for me and I seem to tell myself every year I will give myself more time so I am not so rushed when the holiday comes!!! I think your book would have great ideas and be a blessing to me and I will share this book with my friends!!!! So it can bless someone else!!!

  183. The name alone makes me smile 🙂 “Everyday Confetti”. Makes me think of the times I buy little hearts, snowflakes etc…and put them inside greeting cards I send so that when the recipient opens the card little confetti blessings spill over. I think we all need a little confetti everyday 🙂

    Blessings,
    Joy

  184. Would live to win a copy and incorporate ideas like these into my family and church family to reach our community!

  185. I would love a copy of this! It’s just what I need for a jump start.

  186. Karen Loper says:

    Great ideas, love the title. Would love to read this book. In a world of texting…. I often send random text with scripture to my teen son, early adult niece and nephews. Funny because when my son was small I would leave random notes in his lunch box- he always enjoyed it. Now he appreciates the text. I also have bought certain daily devotional books and given them to people during challenging times. If you know someone with cancer about to go into treatments, research some items that could help them through it (blankets, boomerang pillow, books, magazines, a new water bottle, even personal items like tissues, nausea pops, lotions, lip balms). You can get your kids to help you pick the items out which will help encourage compassion. Thanks for the giveaway !!! Karen

  187. Charletta Rupert says:

    I would love to have a copy of this. I am a Pastors wife and I constantly am looking for ways to encourage people. Ministry is my compassion as well as my calling. God is good.

  188. Wendi Bangerd says:

    I have been watching for the release of this book! I would love to have a copy of it! I need ideas of how to bless others in different ways. Thank you.

  189. Sounds like a great book! I’d love to win it- sometimes you just need help with ideas 🙂

  190. This would be great. Can’t do much but always looking for ways to bless others. Found a fun pattern for crotched sugar cookies which I made for my mother & two dear older friends who are widows. Their appreciation really blessed me!

  191. I would love a chance to win this book! Thanks so much! I appreciate the Proverbs 31 team!!

  192. I would love to win a copy. I love to celebrate and show love to others and it appears this book would have some wonderful ideas!

  193. Jimmie Brackett says:

    Love to listen to them!

  194. I would love to read this for more practical ideas on how to bless others.

  195. Brenda Smith says:

    This is such a refresher/reminder to me. I use to do this kind of thing when my children were young now that they have married and left for college I have let this idea go too. I would love to see some of the other ideas in this book to get more Ideas to maybe do this long distance or every day occurance to express the Love of Christ with the every day ideas called confetti love the name as well.

  196. How exiting! Sounds fantastic and would love to win a copy to give to my son and daughter-in-law.

  197. Cheryl Duchaine says:

    I love doing something for someone just because. It doesn’t have to be a special occasion, just any day of the week to bless someone. Thank you for sharing all of the wonderful ways to bless someone! I am going to give a few of yours a try!

  198. Really exciting to celebrate birthdays.. but true we tend to forget them being held up with so much other works… Glad to have copy of Everyday Confetti so as to have a blessed time with loved ones…

  199. These acts of kindness seem to be such a blessing and they seem so easy and stress free what an awesome idea. Thanks for sharing these ideas to bless someone else. I usaully use post it and leave message of encouragement. Hope to win this book. Blessing

  200. Cant wait to get this book. Hoping it will give me that spark back to have fun with holidays and everyday!

  201. Vonnie Kronk says:

    I would LOVE to win this book because I am NOT good at anything anymore!

  202. With so many trials and tribulations that life throws our way a random act of kindness can mean the world to someone hurting. Blessings to all who serve in Jesus name. He is the way the truth and the life.

  203. What a fun sounding book…….these ideas will be great to do and share with grandchildren when we get moved to their neighborhood. I hope/plan to spend as much time as I can creating and building memories with these sweet gifts from God. Thank You for putting ideas all in one place.

  204. I really need this I have several really hard to love people in my life and I am struggling to love them but I desperately need to love them. Help!!

  205. Summer Cook says:

    I would love to win a free copy, I have been wanting to find ways to spread God’s love and what better than to get my children involved. They all are in their teen years and I feel I have lacked in these areas. I have not been creative enough and I love the tips about thanks:)

  206. It is easy to get caught up in our routines and miss simple moments when we can show God’s love to others. I want to spend this year taking time out to share God’s love with others and teach my son to do it as well. Simple acts can make all the difference in someone else’s life. We just need a gentle reminder from time to time!

  207. I would love to win a copy of this as I’m going through a divorce and desperately need reasons to celebrate each day!

  208. Pat Covington says:

    I could use this to sprinkle happiness on my family, friends and co-workers! Love it.

  209. We are working to doing more giving volunteering as well as in “gifts” this year with the kids at home. I am also going to start doing lessons in our young elementary Sunday school class about doing for others and showing kindness. This looks like an excellent book!

  210. Carolyn Reese says:

    This looks like a wonderful book! I would love to read it and get great new ideas to make special days even more special!

  211. Barbara Rivera says:

    I love the idea of simple celebrations. We don’t need to be Martha Stewart to pull off a memorable party for our children. Small ideas executed with love will leave a big impact our their lives. I would love to be able to take a party box loaded with cupcakes that are tagged with Bible verses about love into a low income neighborhood and share the love of Jesus with the kids. I want to teach my children to have a compassionate heart and to love others right where they are at.

  212. Sarah Triplett says:

    I am the mother of an amazing 3 year old little girl and the wife of a hard working Chemistry teacher, and I would love to sprinkle more love and confetti in their lives. I am getting ready to go back to school to become a nurse and will need all the help I can get with the demands of nursing school and a part time job.

  213. What fun ideas!

  214. I need help! My heart is in the right place, but my mind can’t seem to pull it all together. Life is short. I want to make it special for my family.

  215. I love the neat ideas. Thanks for sharing.

  216. I would like this book because I am always trying to find new ways to love on my family and friends.

  217. I love this idea! Thanks so much for the inspiration! May God bless you abundantly today and always!

  218. Malynn Percy says:

    What a great book to help remove the callous from our hearts or show love in.ways we never thought of. Would love to win

  219. I would really like to have this book, simply because while I am very big on seeing the beauty and joy in every moment, sometimes it is hard to capture it, or even bring it more to life. I want to l moment, but I also want the moments to live on as memories, and even treasured traditions as a family that our children can take along with them. This book seems like it would be helpful in making that happen more often, and even making more moments and memories possible, that may otherwise just slip by. Just thinking of the possibilities gets me excited! 🙂

    • Not sure where some of my words went…crazy phone, haha…it should say “I want to live in the moment…” perfect example of how I don’t want moments to be fade from memory or be skipped over… like my phone does with my words, haha, but instead, with intentionality, moments are more than quickly entered in…the are engraved. 🙂

  220. Helpful ways to make everyday a special day. This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it. Hopefully this book will serve as a reminder for me to be thankful , thoughtful, and pass along my blessings.

  221. Melissa Gooch says:

    simple things …. it doesn’t have to be complex, just basics—it’s the little things that matter!
    Blessing to you!
    M

  222. Marijo Napier says:

    I think this is a wonderful idea and plan to get my Life group in on doing this!

  223. I could really use some tips. I always have good intentions but fall short when it comes to ideas.

  224. marci rupert says:

    thank you for the wonderful insight. please keep it coming!! God Bless

  225. Patti Bliss says:

    Great stuff and ideas.

  226. First I’d like to thank you for your heart and the wonderful contribution you offer to us through this message. As mothers we tack on so many expectations on ourselves because we strive to do it all and in that we quickly lose focus on what really matters. I have such a hard time reminding myself that I’m broken and that’s okay. It’s just so hard to visualize what living simply looks like and how to maintain it with the very many distractions and set backs. It’s so easy to fall into the guilt mode and before we know it we’ve dug ourselves into a pit. Your ideas seem like the perfect antidote to our over-thinking and high expectations we so often put on ourselves. I’m looking forward to exploring your site and should I be blessed to recieve a copy I will absolutely take it to heart and put it into action. Live it, share it, repeat. God Bless and thank you again.

  227. I need ideas to spark up special days. I have been frustrated that those days that should be special simply meld into the ordinary.

  228. After recently losing many possessions in a tornado, I realize what I have lost most is my time, which has been spent cleaning, sorting, shopping, fixing, etc. It’s our family time and all those moments that matter more than any possessions and I can’t wait to have more time to devote to our ordinary, everyday moments. The memories we make cannot be taken away by a fire, flood, tornado.

  229. As my own children get older, and now my first grandchild, it becomes even more important to teach them to impact our world.

  230. I have been looking for ways to connect in small ways with the people in my life whom I don’t know very well, including church members and neighbors, in addition to making ordinary days special for my family and friends. I think “Everyday Confetti” could be the answer!

  231. Amanda Cottrell says:

    Thanks for the reminder to celebrate every day – some days are so hard with a 7 month old that I need to be reminded to enjoy them 🙂

  232. Jen Griffin says:

    Thanks for sharing all those wonderful ideas – I had just recently made some book marks for people at church and I put verses on them as well, now I can use some of those ideas to hand out even more little everyday notes!

  233. Jen Gottschling says:

    This is just what I need! What great ideas! Love getting the children involved too! Thank You!!

  234. Karen Sego says:

    Looks like a great book for someone like me who isn’t very creative! 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win!

  235. McKala Nehring says:

    Sometimes we just stop whatever we are doing and have a family dance party. It always makes everyone smile and it is so cute to see my 2 year old’s new dance moves.

  236. I would love to have this book to make everyday special. I feel the days are special since God made them but I need to share that with others.

  237. Lisa Foster says:

    I am a teacher asst. and I have 21 little ones that need me to sprinkle them with one everyday…..even when I don’t feel like it.

  238. I think this is a great idea. I love little Happys! and would like more ideas on how to use them.

  239. I’m always looking for ways to show love in a tangible way and Karen Ehman delivers! Can’t wait to see the new book!

  240. I like to send cards of encouragement in the mail to family & friends. This book would be great for other ideas of how to bless people.

  241. I would love to have your book. I would love to have new ideas to share with my teenagers. We took Puffs Kleenexes to our members of the church that live in the nursing home this last winter. It was so good for the kids not to mention how much the residents loved it.

  242. Wow, heard you on WBCL today with Lynn Ford and was blessed by God once again through you. Thank you for an obedient heart Renee!!!! Came to your site over lunch break and am again blown away by how God brings His gifts and encouragement to me. Not sure why I get so surprised but I do. : ) God has soooo impressed upon me that the “busyness of life” is not from Him and is actually preventing me from experiencing His peace, presence, ect in my life. I must remove what drains away my energy, space, and time to be with God and be about His Best Plans for me and through me for my family and others. Thank you God for leading me here to Everyday Confetti. What a gift to help in the area of my ungiftedness hahaha. Happy to use Karen and Glyniss’ giftedness to bring joy to those I love and desire to encourage!!!!! Thanks again so much Renee. May God shower you with His great favor!

    When my girls were younger I would put notes in their lunches and write notes on their mirror. Now that they 18 and 16 they don’t seem to care anymore. Sometimes I feel they are pulling away. I love these ideas and I am going to try some of them. Just need to give my girls little reminders that God is still with them and we will always be with them.

  244. Sorry I missed this chance to win but I enjoyed reading the above.

    I’d love to win this book to have great ideas to share with others in need of God’s great love for them

  246. I love the ideas. It is indeed the simple, thoughtful things that make the best memories. Thanks for the encouragement this ministry gives!

  247. I would like to win this book because this is exactly what I want someone to do for me- show me love. The smallest kindness, expression of love changes my day, my attitude, my love to others. I want to give love away to my family, my co-workers because I think they have their empty cup out for a love donation, just like me.

  248. I have been so blessed by reading your blog. I hope to get the book …I will even buy one
