#14daysofThanks : a photo challenge

I issued a little challenge today to my newsletter subscribers and it’s just too good not to share with all of you.



When I have a camera in my hands, I can see the world clearly. I can see the daily miracles I would have otherwise overlooked and I want to capture it. To gobble it up and drink of the Lord’s blessings. It’s a small perspective shift that changes everything. It’s in the way I’m wired.

I want to help you grow as the main photographers of your daily life, but I also want you to grow into content and grateful people. So I’m going to challenge you to take 14 images: one each day for the next 14. Not the posed cheesy images, but images of beautiful details that you’re thankful for. Maybe the flowers that your three year old picked amid the messy breakfast dishes. Or the wedding band of the man who is faithful. Or maybe the coffee cup first thing in the morning after a long night. Or the kids playing with a massive pile of legos but not arguing.

I think taking some time to record and share these moments will change us all.

Here’s a secret, you don’t have to pull out your DSLR. In fact, I’ll be taking my photos on Instagram and tagging it with #14daysofthanks. I might use my big girl camera once or twice… but I’ll still upload it for you there.

Join me? And then comment here to let me know how it changed you.
