LIGHT THE WORLD

Four weeks to serve. One perfect example. I love this Christmas tradition, sponsored by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It's an effort to remind us to give as Jesus gave, one person at a time.

Share how you're lighting the world by commenting below -- and if you have a picture to send with it, I would love that! (send it separately to shawna(at)shawnaedwardsmusic(dot)com and I'll add it to the blog.) When I see your comment, I'll send you whichever you want -- an mp3 or the sheet music of "He is the Gift." 

I'll be sharing how our family is lighting the world in the next few blog posts.

I love your music !!! It is such beautiful and uplifting music. I noticed that one of the widowed sisters in our ward, wasn’t at church, so I called her to make sure she was ok and surprised her with dinner that night. I would like the sheet music to add to my collection. Thank you sooo much for your beautiful music and sharing your talents with others.

My children and I have been making cookies and caroling for our neighbors and people who don’t have a lot of family during the holidays! May I have the solo sheet music for he is the gift. It’s beautiful. Thanks for sharing. My kids love the miracle song so much!

Our family chose 15 families who we thought might be especially lonely or vulnerable this time of year. Then we assembled goodie plates and caroled each of them. I love what you are doing with this effort! The sheet music would be wonderful to this beautiful song.

We had our cub scouts over to our home to play games and decorate gingerbread boys. We encouraged them to decorate one specifically for someone they thought might enjoy/need a little act of kindness.

I would love a copy of the sheet music for the Christmas song. Thank you!

This Christmas I’m helping my ward YSA and missionaries to light the world by helping them with their Christmas musical fireside. They’ve asked me to play the piano for their fireside in a week, and so I’ve been practising their songs everyday so that on that night, everyone can feel our Saviour’s love and the Spirit of Christmas!

My family and I went around a delivered a Christmas treat to the elderly and others this past Sunday. And even though my girls are little, it was such a fun night being able to teach them how even little acts of kindness can help brighten someone’s day.

By serving on the board of a food bank, helping people in need, volunteering at a thrift store, outreach ministry and serving as an elder in the church, and of course ministering through music.

We helped gather donations and donated to get supplies (sister gifts for some sister missionaries, white shirts and ties and socks and some American candy) sent to my son’s mission in Peru to provide christmas packages for about 30-40 of the missionaries in his mission that wouldn’t be getting a christmas package so now they all will.

My family is taking an older sister, whom we love, to see a special production of the Nutcracker, set in the 1858 Kingdom of Hawaii. We’re all very excited.

For youth night tonight our young women went to an assisted living center and played games and visited with some of the residents. It was a great experience; not only to see the youth interact with them, but also a reminder to myself to be grateful for even the small things in life.

I took flicker candles with the Light World candle and a little bag of homemade treats (muddy buddies or grinch bread) to my neighbors. Thanks for being so willing to share your “He is the Gift” sheet music.

We filled a shoebox with presents for a little boy to send to another country! Would love a copy of the music, such a beautiful song-thank you!

Every year our family hosts a food drive called “Cup For a Can Cocoa Stand.” We invite everyone in our neighborhood to bring a canned food and in exchange we give them a cup of cocoa. We all gather outside where a Christmas movie is playing. This will be our 4th year doing it at our home after reading about this idea in The Friend magazine. It has brought the community together and teaches our children how to serve others.

An elderly man who let us borrow grapes from him this season is declining in his health. He has a ton of grape vines, so my family and I went over and trimmed them and cleaned the area up for a few hours.

Hi, Shawna. I live in Northeast Brazil, in the city of Joao Pessoa. In my ward we organized a chorus with our Primary children. During Christmas week we will sing in the homes of old people, inactive members, carrying the sweet spirit of this time through the christmas songs. I love your songs, they touch me and bring me closer to the Savior. Thank you for sharing your gift. I would love to recieve a sheet music copy of “He Is The Gift”. I’d like to ask for your permission to translate the song so our children can sing during our visits. Thank you so much!
