IN MY LIFE
Did you make it through yesterday? A sick child paired with overworked websites made it nearly impossible for me to truly take advantage of Cyber Monday, but hopefully some of you found some great deals.
But today is even more important – #GivingTuesday. There are so many great non-profit organizations out there that it can seem hard to know how to divide your money in donations, but the important thing is to just give! We’ve saved up our money this year and I cannot tell you how invigorating it has been to give lump sums to 3 of our favorite charities and people in ministry over this past week.
If you live in Nashville, here are just some of the local organizations I can recommend: http://www.samicone.com/how-to-give-back-in-nashville/
Tonight is also the free Lighting of the Green ceremony hosted by Amy Grant here at Lipscomb. Festivities start at 5:30pm if you’re looking for a fun and free way to ring in the holidays.

RAISING UNCOMMON KIDS
Remember, you can visit http://RaisingUncommonKids.com for links on where to purchase my new book. (And if you purchase the book and love it, it would mean the world to me if you would leave a review on those sites as well.)
Another way you can help is by helping to spread the word (by word of mouth and social media). I have several sample tweets, FB messages and images like the one below for you to share at http://bit.ly/RUKShare
