One of our renewed focuses and missions as a family is seeking out ways to serve daily all year long. Our kids range in age from 1 year to 17 years old, so sometimes it's hard to find the right thing.
We just filled a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child, which we have done many years. We say we are filling gifts for our "shoebox friends." This year we are excited to be able to track our shoebox and see where in the world it may go.
This week we will be buying socks to donate to Turkey after their devastating earthquake. A local church is responding to a request for socks from some missionaries. We all love socks, so this will be fun for us to shop and then drop them in the Box for Socks. Are there any collections near you?
Focus on the Family has a nice series to read on serving as a family here.
