What are you doing for your Christmas homeschool break? Shopping? Traveling? Opening your home to family and friends?
Have you thought about adding “volunteering” to your holiday festivities?
Many homeschooling families take off some time during December from homeschooling, which opens up hours for volunteering. At the same time service organizations seek willing workers to help with holiday events. It’s a win-win for both!
“Why volunteer?” you may ask. Homeschooling isn’t just about the books for us; it’s about teaching—through action—a life well lived in service to Jesus. One biblical principle is, “It’s far better to give than receive.” What could be better than giving the gift of yourself?
