I've got to tell you about a new way my family is celebrating this holiday season!
Each year we look for some way to bring the light of Christ into Christmas by finding a charity or cause that blesses others. This year we are going to do a service advent calendar that my church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) has made available called.....
Each day you can find an act of service for that day, starting December 1 (today) through December 25, and also watch a beautiful video available HERE. You can print out the calendar if you want. The acts of service are based on Jesus Christ's teachings and example. Today's challenge was
JESUS LIFTED OTHERS' BURDENS AND SO CAN YOU
(I'll warn you the videos are very touching so have some tissues ready) You are also given examples of things you could do or choose something you think of yourself. Either way it is a great way to remind ourselves each day to follow our Savior's example and turn outward during this time when so much emphasis is placed on material things. It doesn't have to be some huge thing that you do, just a little kindness that lets someone know they are a person of value. I hope you join the millions of people that will be changing this world, one act of service at a time!
