In a world that seems to have darkness increasing everywhere you look, there is a greater need now than ever for spreading a little light to those around us.
Isn’t that what Christmastime is really all about? Jesus Christ was perfect example of serving others and showing for love for everyone He came into contact with. If you’ve been following us on instagram, you might have noticed us sharing different ways we are trying to light the world each day in December – there are so many great ways to spread joy!!
My daughters and some of their friends wanted to join in and we knew JUST how to do it! We knew of some phenomenal women in our community who went above and beyond in their lives and could really use a night off from cooking. These were busy moms, faithful wives, stalwart daughters, and active members of their communities – they give, give, and give some more – and we knew we wanted to give back!
We gathered together some ingredients and got to work assembling a bunch of lasagnas to feed these women and their families!
Everyone happily joined in to help assemble these meals, and even learned some new skills in the kitchen at the same time!
Just look at the smiles on their faces as they worked to bless the lives of others!
We also took some time to write some personal notes for these wonderful women, to let them know how much we love and admire them.
The meals came together so easily – maybe it was the extra spring in our steps and the joy in our hearts!
We included a salad and a bag of dinner rolls with the lasagnas. The girls were so excited to make their special deliveries.
But not as excited as the beautiful women were to receive these meals!
So much joy!
One of the women we gave a meal to had been having a particularly difficult week. She tearfully expressed her gratitude for the timely blessing of our little meal for her and her family. Our hearts were full. We felt like we were the blessed ones for having been a part of sharing just a portion of the love of our Savior, Jesus Christ. It really is an amazing feeling to #lighttheworld even in simple ways.
We invite all of you to join us and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints as we light the world this Christmas season by sharing some acts of service throughout the month of December. Share what you’ve been doing by sharing on social media and using the hashtag #lighttheworld ! We can’t wait to see how you are helping spread a little sunshine wherever you are!
