A Quote on Poverty

Here we are! The last week of Blog Month.

It has been my great prayer that God used this month to challenge you in your writing. To draw more near to Him as you ponder the assignments. And ultimately that you would choose to be used through your blog to release more children from poverty in Jesus’ name.

The deep sigh of accomplishment is almost here but we have one more week to go! Let us run strong, unwearied and ever passionate about the children so close to God’s heart.

If you are just jumping in now, do not underestimate the power of one post. We invite you to join us as we wrap up Blog Month well.

Assignment 4 of Blog Month

For this week’s writing prompt choose the below quote or sentence and blog about what it means to you.


“Poverty is not necessarily an issue to solve; it is an opportunity to serve. As we go through each day, our heart’s cry should be, Lord, where would you have me give, serve, and invest myself to bring hope to the poor?” ~Orphan Justice author, Johnny Carr


The presence of dignity doesn’t mean poverty is absent.

Jacquie tackled this week’s assignment over on the blog and she laid out a great way to come at this writing prompt. So go ahead and read her post.

Then it is time to write your own post. Be sure to use your unique tracking code in your post. (Don’t have one? Find out more.)
