The Ruth Experience ladies join me today for Finding Joy #51. Kristin, Kendra and Julie are not only friends, but they are also writers, speakers, wives, moms, and world-changers. They are passionate about fostering authentic community and believe simple acts of biblical kindness can truly change the world.
A few years back, God placed a burning desire on these ladies hearts to be the hands and feet of Jesus on a more intentional level. Their experience in practicing kindness in today’s increasingly divided culture was so life-changing, they decided to take what they learned and turn it into a beautiful book, The One-Year Daily Acts of Kindness Devotional, which released last fall.
Y’all, I cannot even begin to tell you what a blessing this devotional has been to me. It’s super easy to follow along with and the Scripture passages and inspirational personal stories have left a huge impression on my heart. On today’s show, we talk about the book and why God calls us to show kindness to others. We also talk about what it means to live a life of generosity, and how you can incorporate kindness into your everyday routine (and teach it to your kids) with tons of easy-to-implement ideas.
Biblical kindness can change the world, but it can also change us too.
Together, we can fight our natural impulse to be self-centered by viewing kindness as a blessed opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus. What a privilege that is, amen?
As Kristin, Kendra and Julie point out on the show, “when we meet someone else’s need, our needs are often met too.” Biblical kindness isn’t a chore or obligation, friends. It’s a win, win, win. Go and be the light, and enjoy this uplifting conversation with these three inspiring ladies.
P.S. As a freebie, you can grab today’s entry from The One-Year Daily Acts of Kindness Devotional HERE.

I really enjoyed listenini to The conversation. It is so applicable to men as well.
I am going to try harder to put others first. Perform even the tiniest acts of kindness. Feel the joy of it all.
Thank you for allowing me to share your words.
Sounds like a perfect devotional to help motivate us to get out and share Jesus with others.

Thank you! Sharing this with my friends that I am going away with for a girls weekend. I saw the book a few weeks ago in a local Christian book store. I am going to have to pick it up.
This book I love and what a great message!!
Thank you for sharing! This was so encouraging! 🙂

“when we meet someone else’s need, our needs are often met too.” I love this statement.
Acts 20:35 “In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ”
The simple acts of kindness can go so much more further than we think.
