In the fall of 2014, our family made the conscious choice to live with intention. This looked like reclaiming our schedule and re-setting priorities while seeking what was most important to God.
This looked like HARD, as I like to be busy, even if there’s minimal purpose in what I’m doing.
It’s the gospel, not the world, that calls our family (and yours) to live intentionally though. Chance and I have personally been redeemed and given a new lives, in which we freely choose to love God with everything in us (Matthew 22:37). Because we’ve been shown how to love (1 John 4:19), we love those around us (John 15:12).
We, the Newinghams, have determined that living intentionally looks like living out our faith in tangible ways (James 1:22). For us, this means that we care for the orphans (James 1:27) and those who are oppressed (Isaiah 1:17) – such as children with special needs and residents of Sierra Leone, Africa.
Through this blog, I seek to chronicle our attempts (successes and failures) at living intentionally, even in our ordinary daily lives.
