I am a compulsive list maker. I will make the same list over and over to just get thoughts out of my mind out. One list I make over and over are values and morals that I want to teach my children. After thought and prayer, my husband and I decided that our family motto this year is the scripture Matthew 25:40, "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."
One time each month, we will have a special evening where we focus on serving another person or family. We barnstormed as a family a few ideas for the first three months of the year. I do better when I am organized, so I made this easy to use spreadsheet.

For January, we decided to make sugar cookies and deliver them to a special family which included Logan's little friend.
Logan LOVED delivering his little cookies and hopefully we filled a little man's heart and stomach.
Now just to get Logan to understand that picking up after himself is a "service" to his mother!
A few people we thought of serving... neighbors, post man, garbage man (Logan says he loves them... they are pretty awesome men,) store cashiers, someone walking down the street, teachers, and everybody! The possibilites are endless!
