20 Ideas for Serving Others as a Family This Christmas

If your kids are anything like ours, Christmas morning is a swirl of chaos, enthusiasm, gratitude,
and…well,
selfishness. It doesn’t take them long to realize that their sibling’s gift is more
desirable at that given moment than theirs. We are trying
to teach them the value of giving (which sticks better with some than others)
and serving over the holidays. Many won’t
celebrate as we will; many are alone, grieving, and depressed.
Get creative with ways you can brighten the lives of those
around you.
