I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in case you didn't know. :) Every six months my church holds a meeting called General Conference up in Salt Lake City. This conference is broad casted worldwide. Today the prophet, Thomas S. Monson, gave a talk about service. He mentioned a great idea that a group of children carried out. The children were challenged to carry out acts of service that would give them "warm fuzzies" in their hearts. Every time the children accomplished this task they got to place a "warm fuzzy" ball (aka craft pom-pom) into a large jar. In no time the children had filled the large jar and became addicted to service. I think I'm going to try giving this ingenious idea a try in my home and classroom. After all, don't we all need more "warm fuzzies" in our lives?
