Happy 4th!! Give Freedom.

Life, liberty, and justice for all! I am thankful to be an American citizen. It is nothing I have earned, I was born into the privilege. And I am so thankful for the many men and women who have protected American rights that we may still have freedom to worship and serve. We have so many choices that many around the world cannot possibly fathom. And it is our choice to use what we have for the benefit of other people next door and around the globe.

My son has recently chosen to be picky (or at least try to be picky) about the food he is given. My husband simply looked at him and noted that we have already somehow started raising a choosy American consumer at the age of 1. Other kids would not have the option of choosing the food on their plate, they eat what little they have – there is no option.

The blessings that we have been given are given for us to give and encourage others. We look around our home and find lots that we can give. Sometimes one just looks at the monthly budget and does not see how it is possible to pay bills let allow give generously, but when you look beyond the checkbook you’ll find talents, possessions, time, love, kindness, prayer, support that you can give no matter what your financial status may be.

At LeA’Tev we are grateful for each service and product that is purchased. Each purchase allows us to contribute toward organizations that are working on behalf of justice for victims of human trafficking and slavery in America and around the world. The first half of this year has allowed LeA’Tev to contribute to International Justice Mission (IJM).

So, happy 4th of July! Enjoy celebrating freedom, have a good old American BBQ and find ways that you give to others.

Serving…

The start of summer marks many people heading out on short-term service projects all around the world.

It is a privilege to serve Jesus Christ with every talent that you have been given. If you have breath, Jesus has a purpose for you! So even if you may not think what you can do matters – serve! Loving God and loving people are the only things that matter in life and the only things that truly do last forever.

I have been privileged to serve several ministries throughout many years using graphic design and interior design. From decorating ministry buildings for the season, selecting design and color during the construction process, creating graphics, or simply creating set designs to accent the message being taught; I have been grateful to serve with what God has entrusted to me to use.

Watch LeA’Tev on social media this week to see a few of the graphic designs created for non-profit ministries and non-profit ministries supported by LeA’Tev.
