“Not only does this jam-packed little book live up to its title and provide simple and tangible ways that we can show our children how to serve (and often serve alongside them), it also tackles the heart issues behind serving.  Why should we serve?  Why should we teach our children to serve?  Does God expect us to serve?”  Jenae, I Can Teach My Child  [click for full review]

“I really appreciated the very practical and inexpensive suggestions in this ebook. It’s easy to overlook the simple things that can mean a world of difference to someone. And it’s also easy to sometimes pass up opportunities to instill character and a servant’s heart in our children because we think they might be too young. But it’s never too early to start teaching them these things — and giving them little ways to reach out. This ebook includes 99 ideas for ways preschoolers can serve in the home, in your neighborhood, in the community, and in your church. Many of the ideas were very original and a number of them I highly doubt I ever would have thought of on my own.    – Crystal, Money Saving Mom

 

“In a world full of people who have “the gimmes” (as I call it), it’s so hard to raise a child to have a giving heart. As Kristen’s book will show you, it is easy to lead by example. It doesn’t necessarily take lots of money to give. Kristen shows you small ways to give (as well as larger ways) that anyone, even your children, can take part in. I hope you will consider using this book for your family. I love each and every way to serve in this book and have already started with my daughter. It’s amazing to see how her heart is opening up to those in need.” – Lauren, Tutus & Tea Parties

 

“This eBook gives you some very practical ways to serve others — and encourages service in all the different areas of our lives.  I just really love how she lays out the vision and gives practical ideas to get our little ones serving others!” – Stacie, Motherhood on a Dime [click for full review]

“It is difficult to express what a blessing this book was to me and the impact it will certainly have on my life. Teach Me To Serve has reminded me that if I desire to raise a child with a loving and tender heart towards others, it begins with me leading by example. As I demonstrate and display a servant’s heart, it will encourage and nurture the same type of heart in my child’s life. Kristen has given her heart and soul, laying out 99 practical ways to serve alongside your child. Laughing one moment and crying the next, Teach Me To Serve reached and touched the deepest places of my heart. I especially love that scripture has been woven through each page, specifically pointing us to what God has designed us to be as parents. I am so excited to begin creating in my preschooler a heart to serve, and watch how God uses this heart for His plan as they grow up!” – Hope

“As a busy mom of three, in three schools, with so many extracurricular activities, our days are very full. As a Christian, I try every day to integrate our faith into conversations and activities. This ebook truly gives you the tools to find very practical ways, daily, to minister to others. I have often heard that one kind act is worth more then 10,000 good intentions, and this book gives is a practical resource which shares simple opportunities for our families to bless others.

“I don’t have preschoolers in my house so I wasn’t expecting to find anything that pertained to me personally.  Um, Wrong!  Those 99 ways to serve and bless others start off with a shift in thinking . . . I found unique activities (that I never would’ve thought of) in the grocery store, in the neighborhood, and on trips that I will be having my teenagers & elementary children do.  But obviously it will work with preschoolers as well – because Kristen tapped into the mind of a preschooler and used their flair for imagination and the dramatic as assets in the assigned tasks.” – Heather, Creative Family Moments [click for full review]
