Random Acts Of ServiceĀ 

Recently I’ve been hanging out with one of my old friends a lot, and we’ve been struggling of finding fun things to do together.
I had the idea to do random acts of kindness/service for those serving in the temple, but really you can just do it anywhere!

It was really simple we just cut up some notebook paper and started writing inspiring and kind quotes and encouraging scriptures on them.

Before we knew it we probably had over 50, we even watched Lilo & Stitch in the process. We then drove to the temple and placed them randomly on people’s cars. We totally underestimated how many cars there were and wished we had notes for everyone, but now we know for next time!

We then sat and watched for a little while. This couple came out and we saw them grab the note and smiles flashed across their face and then they hugged each other. They then took a picture with them and the note and happily left.

That made our whole night. Seeing how happy you can make someone by a simple gesture is just the best thing in the entire world.

Here’s some random acts of service ideas for your Friday night date night or girls night out!
