Pam Berry shares her experience of the Warm Up Winter campaign as a mom of three small children.
After hearing about the Warm Up Winter campaign, I came home amped and excited to include our kids on this journey. While I finished supper and laid their PJ’s out for bath time, I shared the heart behind the drive with the right amount of passion and simplicity. When I explained how I aim to respond, our five year old son said, ‘Mom, I’m not giving anything away!’ Hmm , we’ll work on giving smiles for now!
Journal Entry 2:
At our play date this afternoon, the moms and I began to chat about the Warm Up Winter drive. I shared that we were challenged to look at what we can give…even if it means just smiles for now. One mom was very interested and said, ‘Yes, of course, that’s a great thing to do if you’ve got old things that you won’t wear anymore.’ I was so struck by her mind-set, which I found I had too—that I’ll only give stuff away if it is old and ‘worthless’ to me.
