WE SHARE 2010 POST #2

WeShare2010 is still going and my fast for the gospel continues. I thought today I would highlight two things I have been thinking about as this month moves on.

1)    WHY DID I GIVE UP ICE CREAM?

The vision of weShare2010 was to fast from something and than redirect that money toward advancing the gospel. Here was my thought process as I looked at excess in my life.

We don’t have cable, we don’t go to movies, and we don’t really eat out with consistency as a family. Our budget is pretty locked in. Lots of people could give up renting movies, buying Starbucks, going out for lunch, or things like that. To be honest, we don’t do any of those things, but every summer I seem to alter my schedule and budget around my love of ice cream. It might be sad, but if I am being honest, I spend significant time and money focused on ice cream. So I decided to give it up-cold turkey.

2)    SO HOW MUCH HAVE YOU GIVEN UP?

I would say I eat ice cream 2-3 times a week easily. I can’t reveal how many times or the money…at least not yet.  Let’s just say I miss my ice cream and it hasn’t been easy 🙂
