The Joy Maker

It was a year ago today when the Sandy Hook tragedy jarred us all into the reality that sometimes evil wins. But evil didn't win that day according to Emilie's mom. Click {here} to watch her AmAzInG testimony. Then head to Mother Nature Network to honor the memory of the victims with 26 ways to spread kindness. And if you don't already have a copy of Snowflakes Fall by Patricia McLachlan, you might find comfort in that tribute to honor the memory of each of the fallen that day, each one beautifully unique and loved. To honor those lives lost, why not do an act of kindness today.

Turns out Blair over at One Lesson At A Time is a 
Joy Maker! 
There are three designs to choose from; 
thank you, Blair, for sharing these with us.

I got ahold of the marquee and 
issued a little challenge this week:

And I've been joyfully playing Christmas angel all week
by matching generous donors with families in need 
and it's been funderful!

Did you know that for every service a kid or a teen performs this next week, Hasbro will donate a toy to a child in need? Click the graphic below for more info and to sign up.

Joy to the world!


  1. What a wonderful JOY-filled post!
    Our Student Council is holding a canned food drive.
    I am going to refer them to the Hasbro site to double their good deeds!
    Ah, Barbara, you fill my heart with JOY and remind me of the blessing of sharing that JOY with others...
