Have you ever noticed how adding an element of movement, fun, music, or service to a daily routine can make it more enjoyable? Like dancing while you dust, leaving notes when you pack lunches, singing as you check emails, or praying as you fold laundry?

Have you ever noticed that getting someone to move, play, sing, or serve along with you can also make it more enjoyable?

I would say most Lutheran Women in Mission already find great joy in giving to mission grants, but it sure doesn’t hurt to add an element of joy to the process. This month, consider using – and sharing – the monthly mite challenge calendar. It contains an idea each day to both bless your mission giving and the lives of others through prayers and acts of kindness.

Are you ready to find joy by adding something new to your daily routine?

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control (Galatians 5:22-23a).
