Freedom {Guest Blogging + Another Freedom Creations Giveaway!}

I'm so excited to be guest blogging over at Compassion Family today. Hope you'll join me.

And yes - it's true. Jill, the amazing woman who blogs over at Compassion Family, is hosting a Freedom Creations giveaway along with my guest post. Don't miss it!


This green ear warmer headband is up for grabs! :)


“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” – Nelson Mandela

The recent death of Nelson Mandela struck a deeper chord with me than it probably would have if he had died a few months earlier.

You see, in October, I started something called Freedom Creations – a social enterprise that sells handmade knitted accessories and donates 100% of the profit to International Justice Mission.


Freedom hits home for me more than ever, now, and Nelson Mandela’s death got me thinking of this quote of his: “For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”

This man fought for freedom with his whole being – and therein lies his freedom.

His freedom didn’t come in being released from jail, but in enhancing the freedom of others.

The result? He freed a nation.

Yet there’s still so much work to be done.
