Service Challenge

Tomorrow we are starting a 25-Day Service Challenge with my young women group and the leaders, and I'm so excited about it! (It was my secretary's idea. I have the best YW board!) I think it will be a really neat experience for all of us! I made these little books for everyone that we'll use the next 25 days. Here's the list of "service" we have to do. Ten of them are specific services all of us will be doing and then the other fifteen we will decide on our own. They can be done in any order. For each day there is a quote or scripture on service and a place to right the date and the number of service we did that day. The service challenge will last until May 11th, and then we have a camp-out with the young women on May 13th, where we will share our experiences of service. I hope it goes well!

I need these for our Beehives Camp this July. Our theme is "service" and these would be perfect. I would love to get a copy of these. Good ideas, keep them coming.
