We all love random acts of kindness, right? What a blessing when someone does a kind deed for us… and when we're able to put our love in action by sharing a kindness with someone else!
About a year and a half ago, we ran a 30 day kindness challenge on the site and it was a hit. I loved hearing your random acts of kindness stories (and seeing my kids step out of their comfort zone in new ways).
And since February 17 is National Random Acts of Kindness Day, we're bringing the 30 Day Random Acts of Kindness challenge back! Join us!
What Is a Random Act of Kindness?
An act of kindness is just that–something unexpected done by one person that blesses someone else. Sometimes these acts of kindness are done anonymously (or not). And sometimes a person personally knows the person receiving the kindness act (and sometimes not)!
No matter what you decide to do, if you're helping someone else, you're performing an act of kindness!
Join Us for an Easy and Fun Kindness Challenge
Ladies, we're all super busy. Totally hear you. I'm want to make this 30 day kindness challenge as simple, fun (and guilt-free) as possible.
We'll have a theme for our acts of kindness each week, and there will be discussion questions and loads of fun ideas and stories!
Every Saturday a new post will go live with the following week's theme and activities.
What Are We Doing Each Week in the Kindness Challenge?
Each week, we will post:
—The week’s theme (see above)
—Related acts of kindness activities
—Themed writing, discussion and drawing topics
—Suggested Bible verses to discuss and memorize
—Other helpful resources about sharing kindness
I'll also post what happened when our family did the previous week's challenge: you know, what worked for us (and what didn't), plus cool things we witnessed.
We'll also be hosting a thread each week on the Your Vibrant Family Facebook page where YOU can share about the fun activities your family is doing!
Also, use the hashtag #YVF30DaysofKindness to share on Twitter and Instagram!
This is a Guilt-Free Kindness Challenge. Really.
Join us for all of it, some of it, or even just one part of it. No problem.
Do the suggested activities, or come up with your own. Seriously, it's all good.
Or, gather up all the activities and celebrate your favorites just on National Random Act of Kindness Day on February 17. Awesome! Knock yourself out.
I’ve tried to make this challenge realistic for those of us with full and busy lives! No pressure and no worries!
One more thing? Don't feel like you have to “muster” up enough kindness to do this. Pray before you begin this challenge, and regularly throughout it. No matter how hard we “try” to be kind, the Bible says that our good works are worthless if they are not motivated and fueled by God’s love. Let's let God's love flow through us and give us the strength to selflessly serve others!
Get Ready for the 30 Days of Kindness Challenge!
1) Look for the post on Saturday, January 30 for Week 1 of the 30 Days of Kindness Challenge!
2) Share your family's activities on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #YVF30DaysofKindness, and share on the Your Vibrant Family Facebook page weekly pinned post.
3) After that, look for the new post every Saturday in February here on Your Vibrant Family.
I'm excited to see how our kindness can change the world, one person at a time!
