Operation Christmas Child

This week a friend of mine had the awesome idea of putting together a party for our kids to help them get involved in giving. Samaritan's Purse runs their Operation Christmas Child program every year. Our church did a drive for toys and had a wrapping party but sadly we missed it. So off to our mom coordinated event we went. We had such a blast putting together the boxes. I loved being around moms who are like minded and striving to teach their kids about serving and sharing the love of Jesus. I felt totally blessed! My friend Amy was there and captured the party with pictures and wrote a wonderful blog about our day. My desire is to become more intentional about teaching my littles about outreach and service. Any innovative ideas out there on practical ways to give throughout the year, not just at Christmas?


  1. Love this idea! I always think it's hard to appreciate the meaning of things when we scrunch them all together in the holiday season, so doing this earlier in the year is a great idea!

  2. Not sure why this post from November popped up today in my blog reader... but, thanks for the shout out! I just went back and read over that post again. We had SUCH A great time!
