How can we raise unselfish kids in today’s world? How can we teach them to be sensitive to the needs of others rather than just seeking to please themselves?
Society is constantly sending the message that life is all about them. But the truth is, we are here on this earth to serve our Savior, not just to entertain ourselves.
This is why my daughter Kelley and I wrote Character in Action. We want to help give kids a vision that God has mighty purposes for their lives; they don’t have to wait until they are adults to get busy about it. In this book, “the cousins” are involved in ministering to people God has brought into their lives.
The younger kids are when you begin involving them in ministry projects, the greater impact it will have on their lives as they grow older. When kids are trained to be alert to other’s needs, it gets their focus off of themselves and on to serving God through serving those around them.
It was my intention in writing Character in Action, not only to help give my own grandkids a passion to serve others, but to inspire your children to be alert to other’s needs and available to help carry out God’s work here on earth.
So come join us as we seek to pour into the lives of others. We’d love to hear of some of the “missions” God takes your family on as you seek to serve Him.
