living for this moment - Causes and Civic Engagement

As homemakers managing finances, menus, children, cleaning, schedules and a plethora of things that come along with the title, it's also important for us to somehow be involved in our communities. After all, our culture, the events going on every day, politics and legislation that passes daily will have an effect on our families. For that reason we should seek to be both informed and involved.

That's not to say we need to run for City Council, attend every School Board Meeting or write weekly letters to the editor. Most of us would agree we don't have time for such commitments. And that's more than okay! But, as wives, moms, taxpayers, homeowners, and citizens, the things that we do, or don't do, will impact our children's futures, the future of our cities, states and the nation. And every little bit of involvement makes a difference. 

This month's Living for This Moment topic is about causes and civic engagement. We want you to consider what cause or causes you are passionate about. What is going on around you locally, nationally, globally in which you want to see change? And how can you be involved?


Next Tuesday, February 24, meet Becky at For This Seasons and I back here for our monthly vlog linkup. We invite you to join us on this journey as we talk about the causes we care about. Make a short video, under 5 minutes, or write a blog post. Then come back next week and link up with both blogs! (Linking on one blog will link to both). 
Here is the prompt:
