Give With Thanks | A Service Challenge

We are so excited to welcome you back to one of our favorite traditions here at The Small Seed—our November Give With Thanks Challenge!

November is the beginning of the holiday hustle and bustle and, if you're like us, it takes every effort not to neglect what really brings the most joy to our own lives, and the lives of those around us. The answer is simple—consistent, small acts of service.

We have each been blessed by the kindness of others, and each of us has a desire to serve. But if you’re like us, without a plan, the kind acts we want to do are often left undone. Last year we decided we wanted to change that—which is why we created our Give With Thanks Challenge.

To help make this service challenge a success for you and your loved ones, we've created a packet with a variety of tools and ideas that will make this easy, and fun. Use whatever materials are a fit for you and add any ideas you think would make it meaningful!

Included in the free packet for download are the following:

Visual Tracking System: Melanie has designed a beautiful tree & leaf system that allows you to track your daily service.

Daily Service Calendar: We know that often the hardest part of service is coming up with an idea. This year we’ve created a day-by-day service calendar to make it easier for you to follow along with us!

Prints: As a bonus, we’ve included free printables to hang around your house or give as presents to your neighbors and friends!

Mini Lessons + Additional Service Ideas: To help you and your family engage and learn about the importance of service, we’ve created 3 lessons (one to be used per week), which include short videos, discussions, and activities.

To join us, simply download the packet, and look through the materials so you'll be ready to join us next Monday! As you jump in be sure to tag us at #givewiththanks so we can see all your good ideas! We can't wait to see how the focus on Giving changes each one of us as we focus on Giving With Thanks this November!
