Serving in Our Homes

I was reading a devotional about how people are ranking others with ‘top-ten’ or ‘hall of fame’ or ‘most popular’ lists. ‘We tend to brush away those who are at our ‘feet’’, is a quote from this book. Anyways, I’m going to start a series on the Top-Ten Ways We Can Serve: First up, serving in our homes.


1.       Make an individual’s bed, complete with stuffed animals and bedding

2.       Do laundry

3.       Make dinner

4.       Dust

5.       Write a note to someone

6.       Clean the mirrors

7.       Take a dry-erase marker and write encouraging quotes or verses on the mirrors

8.       Help someone with their homework

9.       Rake the yard, or mow

10.   Set out food for birds


Hope you can do some of these things for a family member!


Hey, Welcome to A Light Into My Life! I'm starting this blog on July 8th, 2015 and, as you  might know, it's my first blog ever. I'm going to be sharing some reviews on books, movies and other stuff, crafting tips and recipes, and all sorts of other stuff. I'm planning on posting something new every other week, depending on my schedule! So, please keep reading!
