As a Harvesters ambassador this post is sponsored, however, all opinions and experiences are my own. Yours may differ.
It’s important in our house that our kids see the service that is being performed and share in the joy that is service. I wanted to share with you our idea for getting our kids involved in service and how it becomes a whole family activity.
During December we get out our “Giving Box.” This box is our place where we write down our acts of service during the month and store them to read and remember on Christmas Day. There are little strips of paper in the box and when an act of service or giving is performed we write it on a paper and place it in the box.
While I do think that service should be anonymous and not necessarily be so publicly talked about to keep humility part of the service, in order to teach my children and make a point I think we should focus on it during the month.
