I love doing Friday Introductions and introducing all of you to the great blogs and resources that are available, but I think that today may be my absolute favorite Friday Introduction so far. A couple of weeks ago, Kristen from Celebrate Every Day With Me did a great guest post in this space about how to celebrate the ordinary, everyday moments. This week, I get to introduce you to her new e-book, Teach Me to Serve: 99 Ways Preschoolers Can Learn to Serve and Bless Others.
Now, if you don’t have preschoolers, don’t turn away because after reading her book, I think every parent should own a copy. While the ideas in this short, 30-page book are geared toward preschoolers, they are easily adapted for older kids as well.
The world is busy telling our kids that the only thing that matters in this world is getting ahead, having a good time and putting yourself first. Selfishness is encouraged in many areas of life. But God tells us to put others first. Philippians 2:3-4 says “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.” That’s the message we want to send our kids. That’s the attitude we want to teach them.
In Teach Me to Serve: 99 Ways Preschoolers Can Learn to Serve and Bless Others, Kristen lists out 99 easy ways you can help create a servant’s heart in your child. Most of the ideas are quick and simple to do. Most don’t require a lot of preparation and planning. But all of them have one goal in mind: creating an attitude of service in your child.
From serving dinner to handing out candy to crying children at an amusement park, Kristen gives you fun ideas for turning service into a lifestyle for you and your kids. I guarantee if you start adding some of these ideas into your life on an every day or every week basis, you’ll find not only your children’s hearts softening toward others, you’ll find your own heart looking for ways to serve as well.
