These seven individual posters all work as independent pieces, but together they create a progression. They travel through a theoretical day, where our main character, Mr. Livelovegive, is presented with different opportunities. This series is to remind us of a few things.
- To live fully, loving deeply and giving freely is a DAILY thing.
- Some of the most beautiful things are birthed out of ordinary situations.

Today, I was out running errands, and enjoying this spectacular weather. I was making a turn to get back on the highway and head home, when I saw a man - who looked my age, perhaps a little older - holding a sign: “Homeless. WILL WORK” Something in me, in his facial expression as he stood there, believed his need. I didn’t have any money on me, but did have the ability to do what I prefer in these situations.
I made my way back around and stopped at a convenience store. I picked up a bottle of water, some powerade, crackers, Nature Valley bars and a muffin. I got in my car, wrote a message to him, sharing the abundant love that is already felt for him by the Maker of the Universe, telling him of Christ’s sacrifice and triumph over death, and included some verses. I put the note in the bag, and made my way back to where he was standing.
I handed it over, smiled and returned his expressions of “God Bless. Happy Easter.”
As I drove past, I saw more sacks of food behind his bag. My heart smiled as I saw evidence of others serving and feeding the needs of this man. The ministry, essence and presence of Jesus is thriving. Hallelujah to that. :)
An exciting (and unexpectedly so) week for @ilivelovegive.

500 tents to Haiti
This afternoon, we drove our two trucks jam-packed to Rehoboth with the tents that Harbor of Hope collected. I am so very excited to tell you that 500 tents were purchased or donated to the Tent Drive!!! Scott and my Dad are leaving first thing tomorrow with 500 lbs. of tents and the remainder will be shipped tomorrow as well. They’ll be there to receive those tents when they arrive at the hangar in the DR. Their plan is to transport tents to Haiti (along with the other volunteer pilots) over this upcoming week. In addition, all shipping costs have been generously covered !!!
This afternoon, my Dad was getting a kick out of telling everyone that this Tent Drive is giving HALF of what the country of France gave to Haiti in tents!!! True story.
So thanks to you for your interest and participation!! May our tents provide shelter to some of the families in Haiti. But more importantly, may we pray that the people of Haiti believe and trust that “The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him.” (Nahum 1:7)
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself."
So that I can look back and cry…
It’s one of the hardest things to do: being intentional in your daily lives. Intentional in your relationships, intentional in what you invest time in, intentional in how you treat others. I was once told that the key to life is to be settled and undivided, like David from the Bible, and he was considered a man after God’s own heart.
I want to be deliberate in how I spend my time. I want all of my interactions to have reason, to have outcome, to have goals. I want my entire life to breathe reason. I feel like the best way to do this is focus on the three things that this project is based around.
I want to live fully, so that I can look back and smile. I want love deeply, so that I can look back and cry. I want to give freely, so that I can look back and see the ripple effect my generosity started.
What do you want out of your life?
Logo for #livelovegive
Twitter bird reference. Proud and goofy, authentic and intimate. This bird is loving, and at the same time humble and a little over its’ head, just like us.
"Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us."
Here’s the first round for the LLG logo!
I feel like the handwritten feel is a necessity because of the organic, authentic, street level aspect that drives #livelovegive. Thoughts?
Livelovegive.net gets its’ first taste of gallery projection.
