Building Homes. Building Community.

Have you started decorating for Christmas yet? What traditions do you have that make your memories special? My husband, son and I got our tree this weekend and we had great fun taking out our ornaments and putting them on the tree. Our son said over and over, “Oh yeah, I remember that one!” I, too, get great joy from “discovering” the ornaments that we packed neatly away last year. It’s a blessing to “discover” those things that have been packed away.

This year at Christmas, Rice County Habitat for Humanity encourages you to Discover Your Blessings. For the month of December, let’s consider what we’re grateful for. This calendar will help us realize the basic things we have that we sometimes take for granted.

  1. Designate your “bank” at home (a can, bag, basket, envelope). Follow the instructions on the calendar. Talk about your “deposits” as a family. What other things are you grateful for? Who do you know that may not have some of these things listed?
  2. At the end of the month, DONATE the amount you’ve deposited to Rice County Habitat for Humanity.

John 1:16 says, “From the fullness of God’s grace we have all received one blessing after another.” We hope that you can Discover Your Blessings this holiday season. Your gift to Rice County Habitat for Humanity will ensure that the blessing of simple, decent and affordable homes is shared with many more in our community!

Did you know children of homeowners (vs. children of renters) do better in school? In fact, they have less truancy and delinquency rates; less teen pregnancy; higher graduation rates and are 116 times more likely to graduate from college.

When you help us build homes, you help to build a solid future for young people. Please, share your blessings with others this Christmas season.
