In your home and homeschool
In recent days, we have seen a lot of new about hurricanes and floods. There is much we have to be grateful for, and the fall is a great time to practice intentional gratitude in your home.
One year, we made a construction paper tree and put it up beside my kitchen table. Each day we wrote down something on a paper leaf that we were thankful for that day. It was a tangible way for my young children to see the many blessings in our life.
We also used this as an opportunity to practice the boys’ writing skills, so I made it a part of our school time. In the evening, we would share around the table what we had written earlier in the day.
When you take a look around your home, you will see that you have been blessed with a lot of stuff. Talk to your children about this abundance of stuff in your house and work together to bless others with your abundance.
You can look for local charities that are collecting items for relief for the hurricane victims. You can look for organizations that use your donations locally. There is an abundance of places you can send donations.
Encourage your children to give away their excess and let them see you giving away your excess. In the process, you are teaching your children gratitude and blessing others. You will also be getting rid of clutter. Start today!
Your Zone Mission today is to declutter the items you don’t need from the bathroom drawer.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wipe your windows and mirrors.
My menu plan for Wednesday is chopped BBQ.
Have a great day!
