I announced the launch of the Joy-Forwarding Project on 1/8/2012. The badge is on the right sidebar of this page. I will be running it on a separate blog/website which is:http://joyforwardingproject.com/. As of 1/25/2012 it is up and ready to go.
I have really struggled with the best way to approach the Joy-Forwarding Project. I have been trying to think of, for instance weekly prompts, etc. Then my friend Katharine Trauger from http://katharinetrauger.wordpress.com/ suggested the following. “instead of challenging us to spread joy, why not challenge us to REPORT on how we already did (past tense) spread joy?
For instance, I have already put your new badge on my blog: Ding.
That is what we are going to do for now. About once a week I will put a post up on the other site http://joyforwardingproject.com/ so people can comment on it. But generally speaking, you can each share what you did to forward joy. Obviously, as you share people will be able to gain ideas from each other. Love the concept…..and I am so very relieved. This has been weighing on me, as I didn’t want to be bossy—yet I wanted people to be creative and feel supported by whoever wants to participate. So share how you forwarded joy this week….and I do challenge you to include a photo to show that you Joy-Forwarded .
Thanks for the idea, Katharine. It dovetails perfectly with what I think will work best for all of our giving hearts.
I will attempt to put a reminder or link up here on Believe Anyway reminding people of the new challenge for the week. Click over and look, okay?

I Am Becoming the Me I Was Born To BeAs I journey through this part of my life I have discovered my next mountain. The key is to be the me I want to be in the world, as my gift back to God.
