Giving Double

12 Days of Christmas giveaway at KarenEhman.comHi! I’m Lynn Cowell , a friend of Karen’s and a fellow Proverbs 31 speaker. My heartbeat is to set women of all ages on the path toward wise choices by leading them to the only love that can fill the love gap in their hearts. My husband, Greg, and I live in North Carolina with our three children (when they’re not all at college
).

“Happy Thanksgetting”

The TV commercial hyping up Black Friday put into words what I feared most when it came to Christmas: that my kids would make Christmas all about what they would get.

So, my husband and I decided the best way to help them get that Christmas isn’t about getting was to teach them to be generous givers.

I still remember my heart pounding, like the drum set featured in the JC Penney catalog on my lap. If only Mom and Dad would get me everything I circled and not just one! I would dream.

I wanted to create that kind of excitement in the hearts of my kids when it came to giving. So when they were little, Greg and I had them circle items in a catalog too – the Samaritan’s Purse catalog. We allowed each of our children to choose a
gift from them to someone in need. Chickens, medical care, goats or food, this opportunity gave our kids the chance to make a difference in someone else’s life and to begin practicing generosity. As they grew older, we asked them to choose a non-profit that was close to their heart to give to. One daughter chose hope for girls rescued from sex trafficking; another help for those on skid row. At this point, they were giving … but it was still our money.

This same year, each of our children received gifts from Greg and I that were not just for them, but benefitted those who created the gifts. Journals, purses and jewelry, normally purchased at the mall, became blessings to both my kids and to the artisans, helping them to make a living in a dignified way.

You can only imagine my joy last Christmas as I watched my kids exchange gifts that were double blessings; blessings for the receiver and the maker. One daughter gave her sister a necklace helping to feed the poor. Another daughter gave her best friend jewelry that spreads hope.

Now, they too, are not just giving once … they’re giving twice.

My heart just soars as my girls are learning to not just be beautiful on the outside with gorgeous jewelry and fashionable bags; they are learning gorgeous is more than a face in the mirror. Beautiful is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness and self-control; captivating characteristics that the Bible calls the fruit of the Spirit. They are becoming magnetic!

Today, I’m giving away a Magnetic gift set including a matching set of earrings and necklace from Fashion and Compassion and a signed copy of my latest book “Magnetic: Becoming the Girl He Wants”.

  1. The young woman I would like to share this set with is Emily. She is already very beautiful, inside and out, but I know she would appreciate the gift.

  2. I have four daughters. Seems at one time or another they each need the reminder of how beautiful they are inside and out and of course our Lord created them with his hand.

  3. I’d give it to my 11 year old daughter. She already is a magnetic sort of person and loves to give. I want her to stay that way as she gets into her teenage years.

  4. I have 3 boys ages 13, 10, and 7. No young girls in our family. However, my husband and I are discussing foster care or adoption because he’s a social worker and I’m a teacher. A friend of ours in one of the people that inspired us to begin the journey because she adopted her first child. Her daughter is a preteen now and I’d love to share this gift with her. I think 12 can be such an awkward age and time in a young girl’s life. I think this would be perfect for her!

  5. My cousin, Carly, who needs encouragement to find her voice to overcome her shyness. It is so hard for her to see just how special she is.

  6. My friend, Marcia because she could really enjoy receiving something nice for Christmas. She is really depressed this time of year as she mourns the loss of her mom, facing problems at work, had to have her car repoed due to financial difficulties, and she feels so alone. I am trying to encourage her to go to church and spend more time in God’s word and let her know I am there for her.

  7. My daughter’s friend, Samantha. I want to show her the love of Jesus and how when you have that love, it changes your life.

  8. I have a few. :-) Bethany- going thru a deep valley in her marriage. Doesn’t feel loved.
    Michaela- friend of my son, non-believer (as near as i can understand), due to how she was raised, think she reaches for other things etc to find worth.

    Jenifer, not walking out the way she was raised. Staying in potentially harmful life because anything else (coming back on the right path, friends, family etc) scare her. Sadly, has always felt unworthy, unloved. :-(

    a few more but that is off the top of my head.
    lots of other young women, but they are struggling with different things.
    Awesome giveaway!

  9. I want to give this set to my beautiful(inside & out) stepdaughter, Julie. She is a wonderful daughter & now a wonderful mother too!
