Just another small way we can teach our children gratitude this month. At our campus of LifeChurch.tv we have adopted an elementary school where 90% of the students qualify for free lunch programs. Our goal as a church is to be sure every kid is blessed with something this Christmas. I find it affirming that when we picked up our Lifepack we got a card that was for a 3-4 year old boy, just like our own Max. We talked to Max about some parents don't have enough money to buy Christmas presents for their kids. Since we are blessed to have enough we are going to adopt a little boy for Christmas and make sure he is blessed too.
We are buying a book, a toy and school supplies since these teachers spend their own money providing what their students need. Max picked out the following and keeps asking about our boy. What boy? "That boy we are adopting!"
For the record I haven't ruled out adoption someday but for now I am living vicariously though my friend Kari! Check out her blog HERE
We have also been blessed this month to be able to give an offering above our tithe,
