Lent: Random Acts of Kindness….. Your Turn!

March 4th, 2014 in printables

Another Lent Season is upon us and this year I thought very hard about what sacrifice I would make and a different thought came to mind.  A few weeks ago, I shared with my husband that I would be doing “Random Acts of Kindness” with our girls throughout our neighborhood and he thought it was a neat idea.  I have seen it before, even had some of my friends do the same with their children.  So I decided to make this Lent season not only about selecting a “sacrifice” for the Lord but also about Paying It Forward for Him.  We have been abundantly blessed, not with possessions but with a family love

I want my children to be sweet, humble and giving spirits—those are the values that I was raised on and want to pass down to them. So I thought what better time to start…  So this Lent season, we will be doing at least one Random Act of Kindness a day!  I created this “spring inspired” Random Act of Kindness circles labels to use on our gift bags!  Now, you don’t have to be celebrating Lent to use them, they are just inspired RAK cards and I’d love for you to use them in spreading your kindness throughout your community.

Download the labels here. They work perfectly with Online Labels 2.5 round circle labels! Here are some photos of my oldest getting ready for tomorrow!  Make sure you follow us on Instagram to see where our RAK gifts end up!
