I'm a 5:16 Gal

While searching the web, I found this interesting button. I clicked on it and I fell in love with the idea. Here is what the website had to say:

What is a 5:16 Gal?

A 5:16 gal is a gal who has decided that she wants to redeem the time with her Savior. She is choosing to rise early, before the day takes her away, to sit at the feet of Jesus.

What is the 5:16 club?

The idea for the 5:16 club began as the 5 am club. While the ultimate goal is to rise early, circumstances don't always allow (pregnancy, new baby, illness, etc.). The real purpose of this club is to encourage and journey with one another as we seek to spend time with the Lord every day - whatever time of the day you are able.

Why 5:16?

Ephesians 5:16 says, "making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil." The literal meaning is "redeem the time." We are seeking to redeem the time and make the most of every opportunity to seek the Lord with all our hearts.


Because the days are evil. We must prepare for battle each and every day - sometimes just to get through the day!

I was hooked! Although the idea original started with a Mom and her daughters, it spread over to the website Like a Warm Cup of Coffee. I am extending the invitation to you! Who needs to redeem the time with her Savior more than a Mom?

There is also a forum and Twitter "516 Twibe" where you can chat live with other 5:16 Gals!
