Did you know that today is not only Martin Luther King Day, but also our National Day of Service? I didn’t realize that until MLK Day of last year but was inspired to learn more and help honor the memory of Dr. King once I learned this, as honoring his memory is exactly why this day has been designated a National Day of Service.
There are hundreds of service events happening today. Find one near you here and go volunteer and/or share with friends!
Some of you may know we are a homeschooling family so I thought it’d be fun to share with you a lesson I put together for MLK Day for all you Moms who may dig it too 🙂
Have a beautiful week friends!
Make A Difference Mondays is a weekly linkup designed to encourage and inspire us to live each day on purpose by making a meaningful difference in someone’s life in even the smallest of ways. Read on to learn more about our vision, mission, and how to link up!
Our mission is to provide a consistent gathering place for like-minded women to build online connections, share inspiration, and provide mutual encouragement and accountability as we seek to live intentionally and make a difference in the lives of those around us.
Every Monday we will invite bloggers to link up any blog post that encourages women to live life on purpose. This could include testimonies or goals from your own life, small acts of kindness or service, creative tips or ideas for showing consideration to others — the possibilities are endless. Our objective is to use our God-given time and resources to His glory!
Also, just a heads-up: the Make A Difference Mondays team has created two fun new ways to keep us all connected! Now we have our own Facebook community group to stay in touch beyond the blog posts AND we also have a new #MADMlinkup group Pinterest board and we will be pinning our favorite posts from the linkup that inspire and encourage us to make a difference. We are so grateful for you and would love for all of you to join us for fellowship in the above linked community group and you can follow the Pinterest board right here to watch for your posts:

One of my favorite quotes is MLK’s. “Everybody can be great because everybody can serve…” Thank you for the reminder!
Yes!! Love that one too 🙂
This is so awesome and I had no idea it was a service day either. Good reminder for next year getting involved and honor Dr. King. Thank you so much!
Awe you are so welcome! Thanks so much for this encouraging comment 🙂
I love that quote you shared. We spent last week and this week listening to his speech and processing the power of his words. And the power of the seeds he sowed deep, the lives changed because he was willing to make a difference.. to change the world. It makes me wonder why we settle for complacency.
You are a change maker, Sybil. You make a difference. I am thankful for the way you share, continually.
Oh Dawn, how you bless me! May the Lord bless you as you bless others so!
I had no idea it was National Day of Service! I wish I had seen this post earlier! I love your Make A Difference Mondays link up. I will definitely be joining in!
Yay that is great to hear you’ll be joining us 🙂
What an encouraging link up. Thanks for putting this together Sybil!
