FMSC with the boys

I filled up our van and took all these great boys to serve at Feed My Starving Children one morning. Teenage boys, especially, have so much energy and I love to see them happily and willingly channeling it for good. 

I’m glad for opportunities like this to serve in different ways and to help people around the world.

But I’m also trying to notice the opportunities to serve the people around me in small ways. To be better at ministering, with joy and love, to my children and to friends and to the people I continue to meet at doctors appointments. Looking in someone’s eyes and sharing in their sorrows and joys and fears and thinking about and praying for them connects me to God and fills me up.
