LAHFH Weekly Volunteer Update February 12, 2018

Lakes Area Habitat for Humanity is a Christian organization dedicated to the elimination of poverty housing. This February 14th is not only Valentines Day it is also the beginning of the Lenten season.  For Lent I am going to post 40 positive actions for the Lenten season. (5 per week)
  1. Make plans to be a part of a Lenten study or read an inspirational book.
  2. Shortly before Lent begins, put out a box or a bag near your eating area. Select a food item each day to donate to a food bank. Don’t make these items “extra” purchases. Share from your own food.
  3. Create a worship/prayer space for your family and set a special time for reflection.
  4. Think of at least three co-workers you appreciate. Tell them how they have made a difference in your life.
  5. Contemplate the last 40 days of Christ’s life and read one or more Gospel accounts to help you focus on the context of a particular event. Spend some time in quiet reflection.
