31 days: living the kingdom at home

31 days of living the kingdom at homeThy kingdom come.

Easier said than done, right?

Join me as I embark on a 31-day blogging journey exploring what it means to live a life centered in the Kingdom of God.

Join me as I attempt to shed the little kingdoms of this world for something bigger.

I think there’s something in all of us that longs to go deeper. To love stronger. To live fuller.

To see purpose in where where we are, whether we’re single or newly married, empty nesters or in-the-trenches parents. To grow where we’re planted.

How does the Kingdom of God impact the little decisions we make? The food we eat? The clothes we buy? The way we interact with check-out clerk?

How does the Kingdom of God impact our values? The way we spend our money? How we vote? Our career aspirations?

How does the Kingdom of God impact our community? The depth and breadth of our relationships?

The 31-day writing challenge is something totally new to me. Am I an expert on Kingdom living? Absolutely not. But I do know that even our small choices — on practical, relational, and spiritual levels — can have big impact for the Kingdom of God.

Because, you guys, we don’t have to wait until we die to experience the Kingdom of God. It’s happening, right now, in my living room. In the midst of laundry piles and scattered toys and empty coffee cups. It’s here.

Because in the Kingdom of God, little things matter. Little things are big.

So let’s allow that upside down, inside out Kingdom to shape our lives.

And let’s start at home.

About Kayla

I'm a full-time journalist turned work-at-home writer. I'm hitched to a shaggy-haired pastor and we're smitten with two wild + crazy boys: Joseph (3), who joined our family via international adoption, and Asher (1), who came the old-fashioned way. I drink strong coffee, I like pretty things, and I believe there's beauty in the broken. I hope Many Sparrows will encourage you to find worth and live a story worth sharing. When I’m not changing diapers and sweeping Cheerios, I’m tickling the ivory keys of my old school MacBook as a freelance writer and editor. And when I’m not doing that, I’m sneaking into the living room in the wee hours of the night to blog about all of the things. (Primarily faith, family, style, adoption, design, and happy thoughts.)
