Today is Family Volunteer Day!

Today may seem like a normal Saturday, but it’s not! Today is Family Volunteer Day! I posted about what our family does to give back to our community here. Family Volunteer Day is a day of service that celebrates the power of families that work together and help their communities. Family Volunteer Day is held the Saturday before Thanksgiving to really help kick off the holiday spirit of giving. This year we did some volunteering before Family Volunteer day and today we decided to keep our volunteering really close to home and help out our community directly.

I am always on the lookout though for causes our family can contribute to. That is why I am really excited about Family Volunteer day!

Did you know that $4 a month is all that’s needed to make a big impact with Utah schools?

*Must Read* 5 Amazing Life Lessons I learned from my 3 year old.

One of my main concerns as a parent is to make sure I am teaching my children correct principles. There is so much they need to learn, during the fleeting years I have them in my home, that at times it is almost overwhelming. And yet, perhaps, I was given these children not just to teach, but to also learn from. Children have a wisdom born of innocence that I think we can all learn from. When I stop to think of all the lessons my small children have taught me in the last few years, I am truly humbled. Here are the TOP 5:
