Light the World Christmas Initiative and Free Downloads


We are thrilled to announce our December initiative at The Small Seed: LIGHT the WORLD! It's an honor to be collaborating with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (and a host of others we can't wait to share with you!) as we LIGHT the WORLD with daily acts of service this December!

The Savior has taught us that He is the light of the world. (John 8:12) However, He has also taught us that we are to be the light of the world! (Matthew 5:14) So how do we do this? The answer is simple: by doing as He did and serving daily.

It is amazing that the Savior was the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, with all power, knowledge, and authority to do anything, and yet what did He do?

He served.

Day in and day out, or in the middle of the night, He served. Whether mocked, persecuted, tired or alone, pressed upon by the multitudes, or in a quiet grove, He served. Surely if the King of Kings had time to serve, or better said, prioritized serving above all else, what joy will we find as we do the same?

We invite you to join in with us, and LIGHT the WORLD this December. Here's how:

  1. Check out this website, and watch this video (you may want to grab a few tissues first wink wink) and get inspired to serve as the Savior did this December!
  2. Click on the download below to access our free 25 day service calendar, a printable tree with ornaments to track your service (find instructions to print in the download), and a beautiful Christmas print.
  3. Invite family and friends to serve with you!
  4. Jump in and start serving! Join in with us in the Worldwide Day of Service on December 1st, or at any time throughout December.
  5. Share your experiences to inspire others with the hashtag #LIGHTtheWORLD or #TheSmallSeed, and we'll be sharing posts that touch us on our Instagram feed and in our Instagram story!

Remember, acts of service don't have to be big to make a big impact. Just as the Savior made time for the woman at the well, for the children, or the lepers, the best opportunities for service may simply come as we are aware of the needs of those around us--whether in our families, our communities, or online.

We promise that as you serve as He did you will find the true spirit of Christmas. We're grateful to join hands with you as we follow the Savior and LIGHT the WORLD this December!
