One of our traditions is to pack boxes for Operation Christmas Child.
We start thinking about packing up our boxes in the summer. When we’re shopping for school supplies, we start dreaming about what items we’ll put into our boxes for the children we will pray about this Christmas season.
We focus our efforts on packing boxes with supplies and items we’d like for our own boys to have. Since our homeschool enjoys art, we like packing boxes with art supplies. We add a small lovey, or stuffed animal, dental supplies, and writing utensils with paper.
This year we added a fun tambourine – music is a beautiful thing 🙂
Because we write, we want to give our children the tools to tell their stories – whatever they may be. We want these children to know they are loved, they are cared about, they are prayed for.
