Thank you so much for being part of this journey with Dave and me! We’ve had some fun with this Thanksliving series and hope that you have been thinking about what it would take for you to live thankfully every day.

Joining Jeff & DW on the show is Jason, Terra Kay, and Mike Ott. Tell us what the best part of Thanksgiving was for you on the Tweetback! This week on HopeNet Radio, we’re discussing the effects of thanksliving – kindness through acts of service. We believe that living thankfully results in acting thankful toward others. It seems like every other day, I see things like the Pay It Forward movement trending on Facebook or Twitter. (There’s even a Pay It Forward Day!)

Finding Purpose Through Service

There’s nothing more inspiring than driving somewhere and noticing a bunch of teens doing some kind of community service project. Today, it was a crew from the Alive In You Service Camps working at the Volunteer Center in Green Bay. According to their crew leader, Teri, about 450 teens from across the country came to spend a week in Northeast Wisconsin doing community service projects in Green Bay. At night, they attend their conference at Xavier High School in Appleton. Teri’s crew of about 10, from Brainerd, MN, was painting and doing some grounds-keeping today. Next time you drive past the Volunteer Center, just remember that it was someone like you who made a difference.

If you’ve been struggling to find purpose in life, look no further than offering a helping hand to someone who needs it. Go on a missions trip. Or just look outside your front door. Somebody needs you today.

Here are some links of ways to start making a difference today:
