One of our Life Group leaders, on her 37th birthday, was contemplating the goodness and faithfulness of God. As she counted her blessings she decided she wanted to give back. So ... she decided to embark on a journey to execute 37 random acts of kindness. Why? In some small measure to thank God for his incredible goodness in her life, and to perhaps change someone’s ‘story’ (even just their day). She completed them all.

Here are some of the things she did: dropping off fresh donuts at a police station (they loved it), taking 25 teddy bears with special loving messages attached to kids in a children’s ward (they loved it), leaving one of her favourite devotionals with a loving note on a park bench (she prayed for the ‘right’ person to find it), taping $2 coins to vending machines for kiddie rides (she stood back and watched – some good responses), handed out chocolates and notes of thanks and encouragement, gave a voucher and thank-you card to the guy who collects the trolleys at her local shopping centre, just to name a few. Her children helped too, loved the experience and learned some important lessons. What an inspiration.
