As Ella continues to grow, I am getting nervous about this parenting thing. I pray that we make good choices about her future. And, I pray that we can teach her things she needs to know to be successful and a good member of society. I hope and pray we can impart our faith and that she takes it as her own. So, I thought I would share with you from time to time some things I have been finding on the internet to help us with our parenting skills. This post is about "Ideas On Teaching Children to Serve Others" I would also love to here your ideas. Please comment below.
Here are 30 project ideas that teach children to serve.
Modeling serving to our children. This might be for younger kids.
Good Article from Focus on the Family (maybe for a little older kids) about teaching discernment while serving.

This is the email message I recieved from Amazon.com after one of my orders didn't come on time. (I didn't even care. I didn't contact them or ask for anything.)
"We’ve refunded any shipping charges associated with your shipment. We’d also like to provide you with a $20 gift card to compensate for this inconvenience. This amount will be applied to your next eligible order automatically without entering a claim code. Amazon.com Gift Cards can be used to buy almost any item sold on Amazon.com."Now this is customer service . . . and it wasn't even their fault! Thanks Amazon for GREAT service!!!
It was a long trip so far and we had a long way to go. We had stopped for a bite to eat. Ella needed to get out a bit more energy before we started off again. So, Ella and Daddy "get the wiggles out " on our trip to Florida. We had learned this the night before from our friend Braedon - Big Braedon, as Ella would say.

I forgot to post this on Christmas Day. I love that Jana started this tradition. I am not sure what we will do when she gets older, but, for now, Ella really likes it too. This is Christmas Eve, just before Ella goes to bed. Here is the video from the first year.
