The 29 Gift Challenge

Autographed 29 Gifts Paperback Book Picture
Cami Walker's life was changed once given the challenge to give away 29 gifts in 29 days.  Here's her story in a nutshell.

Within a month of marrying her husband she was diagnosed with a crippling disease; multiple sclerosis.  Cami also battled an addiction to prescription drugs during her younger years, which surfaced again during her early treatment of MS.  Cami, a beautiful, young woman in love... now bed-ridden and writhing in searing pain...fears 'through sickness and health' vows will be broken...hopes of having her own children shattered. 
A neighbor gave her an odd prescription; to give a gift for 29 days.  Cami was shocked...here she lies in the utmost pain she has endured her entire life and she has been asked to think of everybody else but herself.  A miracle in the making?  But just giving gifts isn't part of the prescription...journaling about each day is also a requirement.  And if she forgets to give a gift one day, she must start over.
Read about Cami's 29 days of gift giving and see how it changed her life.  Does her husband still stand by her side?  Will she ever be relieved of the side effects of this paralyzing disease?  How will she look at life differently?

During Cami's 29 days of gift giving, she launches a website and encourages friends and family to join in on the altruistic movement.  You can check it out here.  You can also order the book, journal or starter kit for your journey of 29 gift giving days.

I considered blogging about my gift giving challenge, but then decided against it. 

Matthew 6:2-4
''So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you."
