Thank You From FYI!

Kara Powell

In a fundamental way, gratitude is at the heart of Sticky Faith.  One of our most important insights out of our research into the Sticky Gospel is that we need to reframe why young people (and adults for that matter) obey God.  It’s not to make God like us more, or love us more.  Rather, it’s so that our lives can become great big THANK YOU NOTES back to God. 

As we wrap up this spring matching Sticky Faith campaign, we wanted to express our gratitude for your support.  So at a recent casual summer dinner in our backyard, we thought we’d create our own THANK YOU NOTE for you. 

FYI Team Thanks You!

If you read this blog, we view you as part of the Sticky Faith team.  If you tell others about Sticky Faith, we view you as a member of the Movement.  If you are taking steps in your own ministries or families to build faith that lasts, we view you as teammates.  If you pray for us and for Sticky Faith, you are most definitely key to the Movement! 

And if you’ve given financially to support the Sticky Faith movement or FYI in general, we view you as part of the team.  Thanks to your support, we raised over $30,000, plus the additional $25,000 matching funds, through over 40 donors, which makes us cheer!  In the midst of the hard choices you make with your finances, we’re grateful that you’re investing in FYI.  Our goal is to maximize every dollar we receive to reach more students, families, and churches. 

We can’t do what we do without you.  We can’t spread Sticky Faith without you.  We can’t do new research and create new resources without you. 

So THANK YOU for being part of the Sticky Faith movement.
