His hands; His feet

  Some of my favorite moments being Catholic are witnessing how we all fit together to make up the body of Christ.  We each have our place, however big or small or whether now or in the future that we are called to contribute our time, talent and treasure for the glory of God.  We really are asked to work toward helping the Church. We are called to be His hands and feet.

  My husband and I have felt over the years that we really wanted to get involved (as much as our family life would allow while keeping raising our own kids our priority) with the youth ministry at our church.  My degree is in Religious Education as well as Elementary education.  Both areas I've felt called to serve in for a very long time. Even starting before college I knew both of these areas were in my heart for a reason.  DH and I have found our place of service for now.  We love helping others reach the youth of our local community.  Our own kids aren't old enough for the youth ministry program yet, but it won't be long and we look forward to watching them get involved and grow in their faith through serving and learning.  Them becoming Catholic adults and forming their own spirituality to take out into the world...now THAT is something worth hoping for, isn't it!?

  God is so good! He equips us all to be His hands and His feet.

  Where are you serving? How are you giving of yourself?

  Whatever it is...may God bless you in all the work you do for His glory.
