KindCraft is a family service group that we started in hopes of providing monthly service opportunities for families with kids of all age ranges. We wanted the focus to be on building a foundation of service and compassion for our children. What started as a simple blanket making project quickly grew and we were able to take 50-60 blankets to Children's Mercy in December. The January event was to fill Toiletry Bags for Mission Southside. We were hoping to fill 50-60 bags for them and we ended up filling 245 bags!!!! Wow! KindCraft has grown beyond anything Courtney and I ever imagined and it is so exciting to see so many people that want to make a difference for someone else.
Why is this so important to me? It's important to me because our kids will follow our example...and if I am being honest here, I'm not always the best example. I will be the first to admit that I am way less then the perfect mom/wife. I constantly show them the not so great sides of me and often wonder how I am ever going to get this parenting thing right. Regardless of how many times I mess up, I want my kids to know love. Not only feeling loved, but how to share love as well. I want my kids to know that their parents love Jesus and are following his greatest commandment, to love Him and to love others. I want them to know how blessed they are. How carefree their life is compared to others. I want them to be able to see a need in the world and be moved to do something about it. We frequently listen to a song by Natalie Grant, Be One, and the some of our favorite lyrics are, "Why sit around and wait for a miracle to come, when we could be one!"
This group has amazed me. We may all have different reasons for serving & what we are hoping to teach our children, but we are all rallying together and serving to make a difference for someone else. I am honored and humbled to be a part of this group and hope it spreads like wildfire!
