Whether you are new to the idea of family service projects, or already incorporate a great deal of service into your family life, 52 Weeks of Fun Family Service can help inspire you and guide you to ways you can touch the lives of others and strengthen your own family in the process. Covering how the chance to serve touches both the individual and the family as a whole, Merrilee Boyack gives special attention to the benefits of service for children, how it can teach them certain eternal truths like nothing else can--and how it can be fun!!! , , Even before a service project is picked, Sister Boyack shows us where to start--in our hearts. She reminds us that it's all about love and advises us on how we can cultivate an attitude of service in our homes. Then, when we are ready, she offers us 52 super-fun suggestions for projects. Some are hilarious and touching, while others offer our families the chance to grow a little and to see that not everyone lives the life that we do. In our family, we are blessed to have had the opportunity to do some of these very same projects, and I have to add my testimony to Sister Boyack's that nothing speaks the gospel to the heart of a child like serving others. I have seen it in my family, and with this easy guide to show you how, so can you. , , 52 Weeks of Fun Family Service will inspire and motivate you to fortify your family by reaching together, both within and beyond the walls of your home, to grow your love and make a difference in the lives of others.
