Speed the Light

Today I want to introduce you to Kenzie.  She has been a sponsor of Life After I "Dew" but today she is here with a much bigger goal than gaining followers or putting her blog name out there.  Today she is moving mountains and I am honored to spread her story and support her in anyway I can.  I hope you will too.
I'm a goal setter. A daydreamer. One of those girls that constantly has a new {and typically slightly crazy} idea. I'm one of those "I'm gonna change the world!" type of people, if ya know what I mean.

I'm realistic. A doer. A determined, stubborn, fierce little thing that doesn't stop until things are done the "right" way. I'm a real piece of work, to be quite honest.

I attended a youth convention on the 18th/19th and God clearly laid out His plans to use me in a brand new way. All I needed to do for God to open these doors was dedicate time solely to Him for those two days and open my heart and ALLOW Him to reveal His awesome plans to me.

At my youth group, we have an opportunity to change the world through an organization called Speed The Light.

This organization aims to raise money for missions all over the world. This money is what touches, saves, and transforms lives. Christ is brought to those reached by the supplies and opportunities these funds provide.

God spoke to me at Minnesota Youth Convention this year and has asked me to raise $500 $1,000 within the next 3 weeks. I don't know how it's going to be done, but because God put it on my heart, I know that it will be done and I know that lives will be changed because of it. 

{John 19:30 says... When He had received the drink, Jesus said, "It is finished." With that, He bowed his head and gave up His spirit.}

Within the next 3 weeks, I will be selling things such as: handmade ornaments, handmade holiday/birthday cards, clothing, and other misc. things on the blog/Instagram. I will also be selling these things in "real life" ;-) and hosting an event called "Parents Night Out," in my community, which clearly involves my passion... Children. I have also formed "The Backpack Project" which consists of filling backpacks with necessities (i.e. toothbrushes/toothpaste, toilet paper, non-perishable food items, hats/mittens, etc.) and donating them to the local food shelf. Each backpack will also contain a Bible. 

Please make sure to keep checking back here - I will be posting various clothing items for sale in a special post TONIGHT. E-mail me {lifeaccordingtokenz@gmail.com} with any questions.

You can also comment on a post or picture to claim an item. Go check out the items I'm currently offering on Instagram {xox_Kenzie} right now!

And, if you feel called to donate, you can do so here on my fundraising page.

If you do not have the means to help financially, I also accept ALL help spiritually. Keeping this organization in your prayers means more than words will ever say.

I know that whatever YOU give, God will give back to you ten-fold. This is coming from a girl who has given absolutely EVERYTHING. I currently have $60 to my name... But, I have put my heart and soul into this cause and will continue to because it's something I'm called to do and something I believe in. I know that...
God will provide.

He blesses us when we give.


{Deuteronomy 15:10~ Give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.}

It. Is. Finished.
