I’m very excited. Today is the first day of the LDS Church’s 2017 Light the World Campaign. It’s an amazing way to keep Jesus in Christmas and serve others. I did it last year, and Lizzy and I had a great time. This year I want to take it a step further and blog about my experiences every day.
“Freely ye have received, freely give.”
Jesus gave freely: He gave of his time, his love, and his very life. For us. Surely with all that we’ve been given, we can give a little in return. For my day, I decided to give of time. This might seem like an easy one, but if you know what my schedule was, you’d realize that it wasn’t easy; it was a sacrifice.
There are a lot of ways to give of your time. I did so by indexing genealogical records. I worked on New Hampshire births, deaths, and marriages from the 1700s-1900s. I’m hoping that I’ll come across Joseph Warner, an ancestor that’s been annoyingly elusive in tracking down. However you choose to freely give, do so with happiness in your heart.
