Family Night: January
After coming across this post about serving together as a family, I spontaneously decided to use these ideas for our Family Nights this year. We needed some new ideas and serving together? Win-win!
So far, we've had SO much fun with these and I'm excited to see the cumulative benefits and blessings over the entire year. I confess though, that I have not been great about pictures through this process so that is one thing to learn for February.
Here's what we did:
Week One: wrote letters to military serving overseas through A Million Thanks.
Week Two: shopped for baby care items and created kits sent to Church World Service.
Week Three: Made cakes for local children's shelter
Week Four: packed up and mailed our baby care kits, delivered a meal to a family in our community
We also watched Homeless for the Holidays together which proved to be a good connection between family and serving.
