We Enlisted

We decided to commit to  Service Bootcamp this February with everyone over at We Talk of Christ, We rejoice in Christ.

This means we will be doing 1 act of service everyday for the entire month. Yep, 29 acts of service.   Today we brainstormed some ideas for our Service:
  • take cookies, treat
  • visit  someone
  • be a friend
  • accomplish a task or chore
  • home teaching/visiting teaching
  • give someone a ride
  • send Valentines 
  • babysit
  • take someone dinner
  • take eggs to someone
  • invite someone over for dinner
  • invite someone over to play
  • send a letter
  • write a thank-you note
  • give someone a Book of Mormon
  • donate to DI/Salvation Army 
  • donate to the Food Bank
  • give a compliment
  • offer prayers in someone's behalf
  • go to the temple
  • take a bag groceries to someone
  • volunteer at the cannery
  • clean the Church

President Thomas S. Monson said,  "I believe the Savior is telling us that unless we lose ourselves in service to others, there is little purpose to our own lives. Those who live only for themselves eventually shrivel up and figuratively lose their lives, while those who lose themselves in service to others grow and flourish—and in effect save their lives."  October 2009 General Conference
