What to Read Wednesday: Service Books for Kids

It's important to teach children that service should become a daily habit. Holding a door open for someone, retrieving a stray shopping cart, or even taking out the garbage without being asked are all acts of service. These habits lay the foundation for their futures as caring, compassionate young adults instead of being self-centered and feeling a sense of entitlement. Something might even end up being a life-changing experience.

    I’m not sure if anyone has noticed or realized but the link- up does not seem to be linked up between all the host blogs this week. I was just at Paradise Praises site and her blog has only three links; all of which are different from these links.

    The TorchLighters video series is a good resource as well. There are a few available for free through Amazon Prime.

    It’s so important for all of us to remember to have a servant’s heart and if we do, it becomes second nature to our children. Serving others has always made me feel better and its so easy to do.
