52 Smiles

One of my favorite blogs is Katherine Marie. She's simply amazing and inspiring and I'm sure you've seen her all over Pinterest. When I first started reading her blog, I went back and read every single blog post. Yep, I'm kind of a stalker. Anywho, I came across her 52 Smiles project and was completely inspired.

I love this project because it is so easy to spread a little kindness. I also want to use this project to teach my girls to be others-serving. So this year my family is committing to complete one act of kindness every week for a year.


Week ONE:  SURPRISE!  Anonymously leave a note, treat, artwork and/or gift for a stranger. 
Week TWO:  CREATE! Select a project that inspires childhood CREATIVITY!
Week THREE:  GIVE!   Pick a way to give that spreads LOVE, JOY and ENCOURAGMENT.  
Week FOUR:  SERVE!  Find a way to help others with your ACTIONS!  (Volunteering & Community Service)
Week FIVE:  THANK!  Develop a way to express appreciation and gratitude to those who make our world a better place. 

52 smiles. 52 teachable moments. 52 ways to show my kids how to serve others. 

Who is up for the challenge? I'd love to have you join us!
