Day 1 – Freely Ye Have Received, Freely Give

On LDS.org they have an advent calendar. So I’ll just use those quotes as my titles for my service posts.

Jesus taught:

“Freely ye have received, freely give.”

—Matthew 10:8

Jesus made it clear that everything we have is a gift freely given from God. We should be grateful for all that we have and be willing to give just as freely to others. (From Mormon.org)

For day one, I decided to clean my mother’s oven. When I was over at their house on Thanksgiving I saw the dismal state of their oven and I knew then that I would clean it when Nicky had preschool again…which happened to coincide with December 1st.

So for my first day I gave my time and cleaning supplies to show my gratitude to my parents by cleaning their oven. Hopefully it will be a nice surprise for my mom when she gets home and sees it.

Because I’m a nerd, I took before and after pictures.
