Using Your Talents To Make A Difference

My husband and I were having a discussion this morning about sunflowers…

He mentioned that sunflowers always grow towards the sun. I pondered that thought for a while and then I had this idea pop into my head, “No matter where you are planted you need to grow towards the Son and He will cause you to bloom.” Our goal at Sunflower Schoolhouse is to help you grow towards the Son. No matter what your circumstances or situation, if you look to Him, He will cause you to bloom. We would like to use our gifts and talents to encourage you in your walks as mamas, papas, and homeschool families.

I came downstairs to have my coffee and read the mail and I discovered an inspiring article in the Spring 2010 Mission Gateway magazine and just had to share it with you. There was this story about a sweet, little old lady named Wilma Saunders (link opens to PDF article). She was a lady who used her talents to make a difference. She made dolls. She wanted the dolls to go to Africa and did what she could to find someone to take them. This amazing lady created about 70 dolls a month that ended up going all over the world. I was very saddened to read that she had died, but I was inspired to find out more information about her. I googled her (doesn’t everyone do that?). Here is what I found.

In making free downloads and information available to you on Sunflower Schoolhouse, I am using my talents and my gifts to make a difference. Over and over, I have been told that these are a blessing to you (thank you for your kind words) and I want to continue to be a blessing to you.  We want to continue to use our gifts and talents to bless you, so please let us know if you need anything (even if it is just a listening ear).

How are you using your talents to make a difference?
