Dec 30 2013
Christmas has ended and before we know it, December will soon come to pass. With the final days of December drawing near, we're faced with the reality of not just December ending, but 2013 as well. A year, which we can personally say, was full of joy, prosperity, triumphs, challenges, and more blessings than we could have ever imagined.
If you're like us, you're probably thinking that it seems like just yesterday we were ringing in 2013, but believe it or not, a new year is just two days away. As we begin to prepare ourselves for the upcoming year, our hearts are full of joy with just what the past 365 days has brought us. And looking back, we can't help but reminisce on five of our most monumental moments of 2013 that we will cherish always.
1. Meet Our Sponsored Teacher
Through Be Free Revolution, we've been given the opportunity to sponsor, Priscilla, head teacher at the Wings of Life School in the Kenyan slum of Kibera. Our donation provides her with one year of education at a local university. Card design courtesy of Allison Rodgers and Kitbash Design
