"I am so excited to introduce my family to @thegivingmanger this Christmas Season. The Giving manger is a way to remind you and your children that Christmas at its core is about giving not getting. The idea is for your family to read the book together at the beginning of the season and set up the manger in a place little hands can easily reach. The book teaches the children that as we do deeds of service for others in and out of our home we are to place a piece of straw in the manger. The goal is by Christmas morning to fill the manger with hay for the baby Jesus to be placed upon. I think @thegivingmanger is a creative and practical way to teach our children about serving others out of a thankful heart for the greatest servant of all Jesus Christ. I am hoping to plan a few family service projects during the season in addition to the service we all do in the home. I am really excited to get started!"📷: @makesomethingbeautiful this sweet picture and your kind words bring us so much joy.❤️
We began with the inspiration and passion to share this tradition we loved so much in our own homes, with other families. We never could have imagined that our story, and simple samples made in our homes could grow to inspire so many people! Thank you again!
