I always say that it is in the happy habits that already exist in our home that I find freedom. What I am sharing today is the very simple answer the Lord gave me to one of those questions I nag myself with. And the answer came through my mother and my aunt honoring their father…

Are you like me? Sometimes I beat myself up for not helping enough. Why don’t I set the example for my children and help in our community more? Volunteer, give, donate my time? And, if you are like me, you may find it difficult to find a practical way to do such a thing with five children in tow.

So I’ll share with you the gentle answer the Lord gave me. It’s one simple way my children and I can help each and every holiday. Not just the usual Thanksgiving and Christmas. The calendar flipped to June and guess what we are doing?

I’d be thrilled if you’d read more at (in)courage!
