This upcoming school year I get the joyful privilege of rooming with an amazing young woman.
Her name is Erin Whitlow.
I call her Rinny.
She is in my Torrey group at Biola and became one of my first (and dearest) friends this last year.
I am SO EXCITED to live with her.
I get really slap happy giddy dancey joyful every time I think about it!
I'm stoked to get to know her heart better and learn how to encourage
her and love others better because of our friendship.
A few months ago I was trying to figure out ways for the two of us to stay connected
in the midst of the craziness of our semesters.
I was falling asleep one night ((this is the time that I become brilliant))
and I came up with the idea of the accountabilidice.
Dice are hard to paint!!!!
Basically, you roll the di and the number corresponds to an accountability question.
These questions ask things like, "How did you love someone well today?" or
"What fruit of the spirit 'themed' your day?"
There are some lighter questions as well, like "What was the theme song of your day?"
We'll switch out questions when we feel like it to keep it fresh and interesting.
These little dice will sit in a jar/bowl on our coffee table (my trunk) in our room.
They will remind the two of us to challenge and encourage each other daily.
They will cause us to intentionally sit together and examine our hearts, minds, and souls.
On days when we won't have time to sit and do this, the dice will be
reminders to us to examine our hearts on our own.
I'm so thankful that God has placed a friend in my life whom I can be held accountable to...
even with a silly thing like painted blocks.
((so stoked to grow is this Maddy))
