It's the start of the month and the start of the Scrap of Faith blog. We're a bit excited and enthusiastic about the change to the newsletter and the Head Quarter's Team bringing our updates and inspiration via this blog.

This month's theme is CHANGE. We thought it was a good theme to go with the SoF changes. So we'll have inspiration and challenges to go with this theme. Exploring how God changes us :-)

Tomorrow we'll put up a months worth of challenges :-D All of them will have a prize of a $30 gift voucher to Koorong bookstores.

So check back for the challenges and details to enter :-D

Also we are looking for a new member for our design team. Check out the details here
