10 Ideas to Get You Started!

Who doesn't like lists?! For Service Beans (I will be doing posts detailing the program soon) for the past few months I have been putting a list of new service ideas on the back of the record sheets every month. At a committee meeting we were brainstorming easy ways to give students and families service ideas. One of the committee members threw out this genius idea and I have been putting a list on the back of the record sheets every month. Having a solid committee is pure awesomeness. Why it took me months to share it on here I don't know, but it finally hit me and so here ya go!

What I do when I print up a new record sheet is sit down with my family and we go over the list of ideas and choose what we want to do when, and put it on the calendar. Doing as part of Family Home Evening on Monday's would be great or during Family Council would be great too (check out this amazing post on family councils). It works really great to sit down and plan out what we are going to do which means most of it actually happens. It's also super fun to see what your kids want to do and their enthusiasm is contagious. If nothing else print it out and put it on your fridge. I also hope that if you like it you'll share it with others so they can catch the service bug.

One last note...The SIP Project was featured on Christi Madrid she is a vivacious and bright women (I don't think I have ever felt the need to describe someone as vivacious, but that's how I see her). I have been following her site for sometime and was honored she thought of me. She started a fantastic new series called "Light It Up". Need some sunshine?! Head on over then!

Alright my friends,

Scatter sunshine!


  1. WoWzA! Pinned and inspired. Thank you for taking the time to share these ideas. LOVE the idea that kindness is love with work boots on ... thinking with your heart!!


  2. I went for the U.S. 8 regular (similar to a UK 12) it is a shrunken style, hence the name so for
    Action Fuel PRO once I didn't have to shorten arms, I am 5ft 3 and the length I think is perfect on me, it just covers/touches the rear pockets on my jeans. It is out of stock I think in my size but they always replenish as I think it's a classic style they do all year round.


I love to hear what your thinking and appreciate your taking the time to comment. Thanks for stopping by :) Come back soon! (I respond to every comment via e-mail so it won't show up here unfortunately)
