Small Acts of Service

Recently I taught a group of 8 and 9 year olds about service.  We read in the scriptures about following Christ's example to serve others.   And how when you serve others you are serving God. We made cookies, put them in cute bags with tags that read "You Make Me Smile".  I asked the children who they were going to give them to...One little girls, said there was a lady across the street who was older and lonely, and she wanted to give the cookies to her.  She got it!

While the cookies were baking we watched this little video about how even children can make a difference.  I believe as we teach even the youngest children to serve and love others we can make a difference in this world...One child, one smile, or one cookie at a time.


  1. Beautiful! Thank you for sharing. And for teaching these sweet little ones. It matters.

  2. I love it! I think it's so important and valuable to teach our little ones to help others. Great post!
