Give Sunday | 01

Fall And Rise Word Art By Ali Edwards

This year, in honor of my One Little Word® "give," I'm planning to share a hand-drawn quote each Sunday here on my blog.

It will be words that inspire me, many of which will likely come from my "Words" board on Pinterest

I hope these words will also inspire you in one way or another and you will be encouraged to look at the ways you and your family give to yourselves, to each other, and to the world. 

To help you start thinking about ways to give I designed a #givesunday word art set with a checklist. It includes a 4x6 card, the title and the checklist (because, you know, we document). 

Click here to download the #givesunday word art.

And here's the quote for this week (if anyone has a source for this quote I'd love to know - it was listed as "unknown" on Pinterest): 

Updated with attribution: Looks like this is a mash-up of a couple quotes from Ritu Ghatourey and Brigitte Nicole (via this pin - thanks Liz for locating that)

Click here to download the #givesunday 01 quote.

You're invited to join me. What will you give today? 

Have a wonderful Sunday.

    Today I'm giving myself a day to recoup after an intense work week and an intense family visiting couple of days. Looking forward to some relaxing and puttering around.

    I went to church this morning so that I could give praise to God and now I give myself permission to have a day to relax and create and play with my craft! Thanks Ali for always being such a great inspiration!

    What a wonderful gift and idea Ali. Love it, thank you so much. I work as the office administrator of a Presbyterian church and I am thankful each day that I can give my time to the Lord.

    Thank you Ali! You give so much to all of us out here in blog land who look forward to your posts! This is such a fun idea! I am kicking around the idea of getting back to writing on my blog....Give Sunday would be so fun with this word art and whatever my family is doing on a Sunday. :) Can't wait to see where your word takes you this year. My word and I (simplify) are on a journey of less is more.

    Thank you so much, Ali! I'm going to print the checklist and pin it to the bulletin board above my desk as a reminder (and then eventually slip it in Project Life). What a great way to give to all of us. Thank you for all you do. Also, when I clicked the link to download something went wrong at first and the video displayed of you and Simon stomping your feet and making mad faces--HILARIOUS. That's the BEST error page I have ever seen before. Love it. Happy Sunday.

    Giving my time. Sharing my faith. Teaching high school juniors at my church. Although, I always get much more from these kids than I could ever give them. They rock!

    I give thanks to you for enriching my life. I love quotes and words. I was going to print these but when I downloaded them they weren't available in a pdf format. Would you consider making them in a pdf version. Thanks.

      Thank you. Do you have Word? You can open and insert the PNG file into a word document for easy printing. Here's a how to: http://aliedwards.com/2010/01/scrapbooking-with-your-computer-opening-recoloring-adding-to-a-photo-loading-brushes
