Everyday Justice

by Emily Betzler May 28, 2015

We're back!
We had a refreshing and rejuvenating week fasting from social media.  The culmination of the week was observing Memorial Day by reflecting on, thinking of, and praying for all the brave individuals who have laid down their lives for our freedom.  Their sacrificial love, not unlike Jesus who laid down His life for us, is truly one of the greatest gifts of all.
This week we have been filled with deep gratitude for the freedoms and opportunities that we enjoy, though our hearts were hurting thinking of our brothers and sisters around the globe who aren't able to experience similar freedoms and opportunities.  However, as we reflected and prayed on this, we didn't feel despair, but rather with HOPE!
We thought of all the people who are working, fighting, and sacrificing daily to provide justice.  There are countless ways that people are being light in darkness, and taking God's call to seek justice seriously!
Act Justly
The list of these modern-day justice warriors is long, and ranges from large organizations, like The International Justice Mission, Free the slaves, The International Rescue Committee, World Vision, The Justice Conference, Together Rising and more, to individuals like you - teachers, social workers, volunteers, health care providers, and people who strategically use their finances to support justice, and purchase products that enrich, empower and restore lives.

We don't want forget to remember those who are currently working to bring justice to a fallen world in small and large ways.  So, for the next month we want to celebrate #everydayjustice.

Will you join us?  When you participate in, or see others doing everyday acts of justice, let us know! Take a picture and use the hashtag #everydayjustice.
ATTENTION
 We will be praying over all the photos that come in, sharing and re-posting them, and we might even surprise some justice fighters with Bought Beautifully products!
UPDATE - Check out our first photo: Missi with the Food Group, working to provide food for hungry children in the Sheridan community! Way to go Missi - We love seeing #everydayjustice in action.

Our Favorite Giveback, Ethical, Small Shop Baby Brands

 As you know, we are in full-on BABY mode over here (and loving every minute of it)!

It seems like the baby game has changed quite a bit since our last baby- there are so many new ethical, small shop, sustainable and giveback brands and products that we've begun to fall in love with! While we still turn to 2nd hand/hand-me-down items as our first resort for finding items for our kids - (it is most economical and sustainable), it has been encouraging and fun to see the myriad of new options! We've loved trying out and supporting some of these brands as we shop with an impact, and are excited to share our recommendations with you! 

Here are our favorite ethical, small shop, sustainable giveback baby brands - and the products we have been using and loving in our everyday life!
