I Quit

It’s Thursday. We can quit anything we want on a Thursday. I do, every week. Pick something, then quit doing it. — Bob Goff 
“Every single Thursday, I quit something,” says Bob Goff, Founder and CEO of Restore International, New York Times Best-Selling Author of Love Does

Love Does. Another book that has inspired us to take action. Because love doesn't just stop with thoughts and feelings; LOVE TAKES ACTION. Like Bob talks about we want to live in a new normal where we can reach out to people who are different from us and just be friends. We know that to make an impact you have to GO there and start a friendship. Friends do ---they don't just think about it. We realize life is about moving from the bleachers to the field. And that God is asking, "Will you take what you think defines you, leave it behind, and let Me define who you are instead?"

This Family Is taking action, no longer just talking about doing things but actually doing them. God is asking us to join His adventure. The bible says the only weapon any of us really have is LOVE. ~Love Does~

"That's one of the things about love. It doesn't recognize boundaries and never obeys the rules we try to give it" ~Bob Goff

"For me, it's Jesus plus nothing..." ~Bob Goff

Join us on I quit Thursday:) It's fun!

Here's some of my I Quit Thursdays so far...

May 30th - I quit worrying about what other people think of the choices I make when I know God has lead me to those choices.

June 6th - I quit being negative about homeschooling my children. No more fear. Full speed ahead!

June 13th - I quit chewing on my fingernails.


Love Does shares powerful stories coupled with eye-opening truths and empowers anyone who longs for a better world and a richer faith.

You don’t need another Christian message or a self-help book. You need to have your paradigms about the world shifted into truth. That’s exactly what you get in Love Does. Have you ever noticed that the real change in your life-the growth that sticks and becomes a part of you-never happens with a program or the sheer grit of your best efforts? It happens over time, like a glacier slowly carving valleys through the mountains.
In this book of compelling stories coupled with eye-opening truths, author Bob Goff shows you a new way to live, a way that’s drenched with the whimsy of God’s love and the spontaneity of following where he leads when he says “Go!” In this book, you learn what it looks like to be secretly incredible and advance God’s kingdom everywhere you are and wherever you’re going.
For anyone who’s wanted to change the world but thought they needed money, a committee, and permission to get started, Love Does shows what can happen when you decide to do instead of planact instead of strategize, and fiercely, invisibly fight for the possibility God has gifted you to uniquely see.
