A winter storm, a family, and an idea for a service project all add up to a delightful Christmas surprise! When Mom and Dad suggest serving their neighbors for the holiday, their kids can’t stop grumbling. But as they secretly shovel snow, their attitudes change, and soon the parents can’t get the kids to stop serving. Share the joys of serving others in this wonderful Christmas pamphlet.

I love short, heartwarming stories like these that show the joy of service. It starts out gathering the family together for Family Home Evening and the kids start complaining (how I can relate to that). Mom presents a lesson on service and then dad announces that they are going to go out right then to actually perform service--shoveling snow! The kids aren't happy about it at first and their parents warned them what the consequence would be for anyone that chose not to participate. It was fun to see how their attitudes changed and it turned into a wonderful experience for them and their entire neighborhood. Their service didn't end that night and they got to see others respond to what they started. This is a feel good story that will get you in the mood to serve others!

About the author:

Lezlie Anderson has loved books since she learned to read at age four. She and her sisters used their wild imaginations playing in their backyard as princesses to being attacked by giant grasshoppers. The first books she remembers loving are “My Father’s Dragon” and “The Trouble with Miss Switch.”

Lezlie is married to a wonderful man, Steve, and they have three great children, 3 crazy cats, one tortoise, and a fish that has survived more hazards than should be possible. She loves chocolate, Dr. Pepper, and anything that her husband BBQ’s.
