March Family Nights
We had fun serving together this month though I failed again at taking photos of those opportunities!
Early March, we had the fun of making the above cake for our local children's shelter - he requested a Ninja Turtle cake! So cute.
Our church hosted an Answers in Genesis conference and we had the opportunity to serve at a church work day before hand vacuuming seats, floors, dusting and helping lay pine straw outside. We were busy! We also enjoyed helping with the AiG bookstore set up and then helped at the bookstore one time slot as well.
We have served in our church nursery, volunteered together at a local thrift store hanging up clothes for the new spring season, and honestly I can't remember what else. The point is not to go on and on about what we did together and I don't want this to turn into a list of look what we did! But rather, to encourage that it is both a gift and valuable to serve together as a family.
So far, one thing I've enjoyed watching is how easy it is to do. It doesn't have to be complicated to arrange or pull off - it can just be taking a meal to someone, delivering something to their house, pushing carts into the store or another super simple option.
What are your favorite ways to serve?
