Yesterday my family was blessed to go downtown to help serve at a Thanksgiving feast for the poor and homeless. We did not get to do as much work as we would have liked, as there were more volunteers than work, but we were happy to have been able to go.
It is such a blessing to serve together as a family. It helps to instill values with the children, allows us to share what we are passionate about with our kids. It allows them to see how to serve other people and to get the focus off of themselves. It helps our kids to see how truly blessed they are. It helps prepare the next generation to eventually step up and be the next wave of people helping people.
