Join us for 25 Days of Christmas Kindness

November 23, 2020

It's our 9th year of 25 Days of Christmas Kindness. Nine years of doing one kind act each day from December 1-25. Nine years of brainstorming ideas and asking others for theirs; nine years of planning and plotting that culminates in December. Nine years of feeling the joy of helping another person; nine years of failing miserably, at times. Nine years of trying to change our children's hearts from focusing on "me, me, me"—only to realize that we ourselves are just as much in need of a heart change. Nine years of realizing our own weaknesses and vulnerabilities, the issues or people we might shy from; nine years of finding the courage to overcome those challenges. Nine years of praying for strangers and crying over random parking-lot encounters; nine years of children tugging at our hands to ask questions about love and kindness that nudge our hearts and leave us forever changed.


Each year has been a new adventure, but this year, we're trying
something new.
We're creating a 25 Days of Kindness group in Facebook. Why should
you join? Because we'll be posting and sharing ideas every
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday throughout the month of December,
hosting facebook lives and offering giveaways! It'll be a positive place to
share some Christmas cheer and we'd love for you to join us! Click here
to request to join the group.
We'll also occasionally post on our
social media platforms (Facebook or Instagram).

Looking for ideas? Here's are some of the things we've done over the
years, complete with handy photos and links: 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015
2016 and 2018.

All too often, we see hard things in the world and we feel paralyzed,
like the problem is simply too big or that our small efforts won’t amount
to anything. But as a mom, I want to show my kids that that’s not true,
that kindness matters and that we can feel empowered to do something or to help others. This Christmas season, that's my prayer for you, too—that you feel empowered and loved by a God who sees and knows you, and who wants to make his love and kindness known to the world, too—through you.

Finally—have you checked out our books, The One Year Daily Acts of Kindness Devotional and 100 Days of Kindness? They tell the story of how our families embarked on a one-year journey of kindness, and include our successes, failures, and the encouragement you need as a family to incorporate kindness into your own life. If you already have one of our books and love them, we'd so appreciate it if you leave a review on Amazon. God redeemed it all in the most incredible ways.

We would love to walk alongside you in encouragement, inspiration, and community.

Kristin, Kendra, and Julie
