A New Year Of Service


2014 is here and our lists of resolutions are surely in the works (hopefully, not yet broken). It’s easy to love making resolutions – it’s so fun to periodically check throughout the year to see what we’ve accomplished and what we still need to do.

However, as a twist this year what would it look like to add some service-based resolutions to your list? Living for others can be so much more satisfying than living just to better ourselves. Living outwardly not only helps the people we serve, but it also enriches our inner character by giving a boost of happiness and altering our perspective on life. Serving widens our worldviews, allowing us to more fully comprehend the ways in which our lives are blessed and beautiful.

Here are some ideas of service-related resolutions that you can add to your new year pursuits.
