Prayer, faith, christianity

Holy Mischief ideas ...

It’s been one year since I went all in towards creating a movement of Holy Mischief. We started with 40 challenges and a Facebook group and now have Holy Mischief Makers on three continents! Here is the original list of 40 challenges. Whenever you read this, pick one and do it in the next 24 hours.

Let’s change the world, one act of #holymischief at a time.
