30 Days of Truth Challenge | Grow Where You're Planted | Introduction

In the spirit of all things spring, and in line with the NaBloPoMo theme for April 2011 ~ "Sprout!" ~ this 30 Days of Truth Challenge centers on the theme "Grow Where You're Planted". Exploring themes of renewal, second chances, self-improvement, new life, restoration, and many others, this challenge is all about learning from our experiences, recognizing areas in need of change, and celebrating our strengths!

"Even now," declares the LORD, "return to me with all your heart,
with fasting and weeping and mourning." Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love,
and he relents from sending calamity."
Joel 2:12-13 (NIV)

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature:
old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."
2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)
