Last day of RAOK...

Well today is the last day of 31 days of random acts of kindness... Even though it is the last day, it will not stop me from doing RAOK all year long! We should do RAOK all the time! Not just when we have a goal or something. If each of you did a random act of kindness to three people and then each of them did three more random acts of kindness to three more people and then it kept going on and on... It could transform the world! This will be my challenge to you though out the summer, using THESE cards, make a difference in the world and share God's word to everyone you see! I will still will be posting through out the summer if I did a RAOK big enough worth posting about and sharing my ideas with you! I will also post items available for you to buy that can help you share God's love! Have a great summer and change the world with me!! Oh one more thing, if you did a RAOK, I want to hear about it! Email me HERE to tell me! Thank you!

1 Peter 4:10
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace.

Day 29 of RAOK

Okay, I don't really know what I did today... I fed my sister popcorn... I snuggled with my little bros... I helped our babysitter out... (I even changed the messiest diaper I could imagine!)! I watched a movie with my awesome family and friends... I tried to change my mom's boring background on her computer but it was being difficult so I didn't do that one... I guess I just spent time with my family having fun!

Day 28 of RAOK

Today I sent a  letter to a place where they collect letters and cards and put them in care packages to send to soldiers! You can buy cards from me HERE to send your own card to a soldier! They have addresses all over the internet, so I'm sure you can find at least one. Thank you!

Wow! Look how dirty our mailbox is...

Day 27 of RAOK

Today (well, yesterday...) I went to a visitation and left a little gift in the bathroom for someone to find! Since I have not been doing much lately, I'm planning on doing a couple on the last day!

Day 25 and 26 of RAOK

Happy Memorial Day!! Thank you to all who have served! Yesterday I totally forgot to take a picture of what I did before I gave it away... But I gave a care package to a lady from our church who is having neck surgery tomorrow and I wanted to brighten her day! Please pray for her. Also last night we went to walmart and I left more than ten happy notes in random places (shoeboxs, bins, on top of laundry detergent, etc.)! I printed them off HERE. And today... I became "The Encourager". I send encouraging notes to people either through email or through mail! I started today by sending two verses to people from our church! It is going to be fun! Will you be become an encourager?

Day 22 and 23 of RAOK

I did not post about anything yesterday because last night, we put a movie in and before I knew it it was 10:30 and we had to go to bed! But I promise I did do something! (Even ask my family!) So, yesterday I gave away two of these really cute bags filled with goodies! If you want to know what is in them, check out THIS post where I gave one away. Today, I gave some nutty bars and a note to my next door neighbor! The note says "Here are some nutty bars so you always remember I'm a nutty friend! :-)"!

What I gave away for day 22.

What I gave for day 23.


Guess what we finally put up today after this long cold spring? (Only if you live in Wisconsin would you understand that statement!) :-) 

Our pool!!!!!
as you can see, we are still working on filling it up. We couldn't wait any longer so we were in there before it even got up to 3 inches! :-) That's how desperate we were!

Day 19 and 20 of RAOK

I did not post yesterday because I got very busy and forgot.... Actually I did not even do anything yesterday.... I'm doing 2 today though! I wrote 3 notes and sent them to people in our church! And while I was out there, I left a cute gift in the mailbox for the mailman! The note on it said, "We LOVE getting our mail! Thank you Mr. Mailman!" I took a baby food jar and filled it with red starbursts (oh, and the note was on red paper!) and put note on and it was ready to go! You can never thank your Mailman enough! :-) Right now I can get the picture to work and My mom is gone and My dad is almost in bed and would not like it if I asked him to help me... So, I will post the picture tomorrow!! Sorry...........

Day 17 of RAOK

Today was the last day of our Jesus Style Rummage Sale! It was a lot of work taking everything down. But I got the fun job! We had stored all the empty boxes up in our "fort" above the garage, so when we had to pack everything up, I got to throw all the boxes down the stairs... :-) I never really get to throw stuff down the stairs, so this was a LOT of fun!! Back to why I'm posting, I gave four of these really cute plastic baskets (which I found in the sale) filled with starbursts to random people!!

Day 15 of RAOK

Today I gave Twizzlers to the kids at the Jesus sale! It was our first day of the Jesus sale and this morning right when it opened, it was like Black Friday! People came rushing in, wanted to find everything before anyone else! :-) I also left a couple a dollar bills in puzzle boxes for kids to find!

For day 14, I left about 10 small notes of encouragement and bible verses in random DVD cases and books! We are having a HUGE rummage sale (and everything is FREE!!) at our house, so there is plenty of books and cases for notes!! :-)

Day 10 of RAOK

For day 10, I made a mini "Sunshine Box"! (Except it wasn't really a box... it was more like a package.) :-) Anyway, I going to give it to someone at Church tomorrow!

"Wishing you sunshine and smiles to brighten up your day!"

Yesterday I left more small encouraging notes in random places at Wal-mart! You can print them HERE! Also last night we went to go see "GOD'S NOT DEAD" the movie!(That was why I did not post yesterday. It got way too late!) It was awesome! One of my new favorite movies! :) And for today, I bought a smiley faced balloon and a note that said "SMILE Jesus loves you!!!!" to Miss Mae (family friend) at the print shop! She liked it! :)

Day 5 and 6 of RAOK

Yes, again. I did not post about anything yesterday... But I'm doing three random acts of kindness today to make up for it!

1. I gave away two cute erasers! One is a eraser that is a puzzle too! (How cool?!) The other one is a huge cupcake eraser!

2. I made a few stress relief kits to give away! I found the idea HERE!! I also gave one of them away!

Aren't these cute?! They are really simple too!
All they have in them are bubble wrap and chocolate
(If you know me, then you should know that I didn't have any chocolate just laying around...) :-)!   

3. I sent encouraging notes to two people! One to someone in our church and one to one of our church's missionaries! (Sorry I didn't get a picture... it got too dark.)

Day 3 and 4 of RAOK

For day 3 (yesterday), I was with my friend, Izzy, and we handed out candy on cards to random people (the top picture)! I did not post about it yesterday because I was gone almost all day and by the time I got home it was late... But I'm posting about it today along with day 4! For day 4, I left a cute gift (middle picture) in the mailbox for our awesome mailman! It is a candle with a note that says "Hope your day doesn't STINK!"

"This is a random act of kindness! Jesus loves you!"
"hope your day doesn't STINK!"

This note was on the top!

Day 2 of RAOK

For day 2, I brought a package of "100 Grand" candy bars and put a note on it that says "You make my teeth look GRAND!!!" and I gave it to my orthodontist!!! He loved it!! (He even gave me a few bars for me and the rest of the family!  But first he gave me permission to eat one with my braces!)  It's true, he makes my teeth look grand!
