The first Sunday in November, I gave the Relief Society lesson on service, especially how doing service as a family will strengthen the bonds between family members. I gave some examples of easy service ideas to do with children, as well as some ideas of local community organizations that would benefit from service.
Today I got an email from one of the sisters who has three children. She had been praying about finding a way to do more giving with her family for December and that lesson really inspired her. With the help of her children, they have made up a calendar for the month and will do some service every day. She had a couple of questions, particularly about one of the organizations I had mentioned.
There is nothing more exciting as a teacher than to know that your message touched someone and made a difference. Her email totally made my day! I am grateful for the opportunity to teach, and even more grateful that this lesson made a difference in one family's life!
