I believe that this Christmas, we can light the world with small, individual acts of kindness…acts of service, acts of love. Each of us has a critically important role to play in the lives of those around us. Jesus Christ was the perfect example. We may be one small person, but we can make a big impact in the lives of those around us. Visit mormon.org for service ideas for each day of this month leading up to Christmas and change your world and others around you as you light the world.
I am eternally grateful for those who serve around me. My neighbor who decorated my driveway when the babies were born, my mom who drives an hour to come be with me when I need her help me when my babies are sick, my friend who dropped off a goodie basket of encouragement the night before the embryo transfer during IVF last year. These people are lighting my world and I know that the service and love you give to others has brightened those lives around you, too.
I hope you have a beautiful Christmas season as we remember the real reason!
