Suffer the little children to come unto me.

Mark 10:14

During Christmas, we are reminded that Jesus Christ is the light of the world. This year, we have an amazing opportunity to share that light by resolving to do the things Jesus Christ did. Every day leading up to Christmas, we will focus on a different Christlike behaviour and provide suggestions for ways we can emulate His example. You’re encouraged to participate using the following outline as you plan your Christmas activities.

  • Ask your children what they think you should pray about as a family.

  • As a Christmas gift, purchase a picture of Jesus Christ for your child’s room. Teach your child about the Savior’s love for him or her.

  • Set one night a week aside for just you and your children. Find ideas here.

  • Volunteer to tutor local students.

  • Read with your children Mark 10:13–16 to learn about how Jesus Christ interacted with and loved children.

  • Sign up to be a mentor for at-risk children.

  • Make plans to participate with each of your children in a one-on-one activity.

  • Teach your child, grandchild, niece, or nephew a new skill.

  • Teach your child how to pray before going to bed.

  • Make time for family dinner.

  • Commit to slow down whenever you enter a school zone.

  • When your children talk to you, stop everything you are doing, and listen.
