Brownie Brigade is Back!!
Monday, September 30, 2013
A few years ago, our family was sitting at the dinner table, discussing what we could do to show love to our neighbors. I had made some brownies that we were planning to eat for dessert that night (and I have to tell you that I was really looking forward to eating them!). But our children decided that we should give them to one of our neighbors.
And that was the start of the Brownie Brigade.
We learned that people love brownies, but more importantly, that giving away dessert was a great way to get to know our neighbors.
So, from that point on, we always had a box or two of brownie mix on hand and the kids started making regular batches of brownies to take to our neighbors. It was such an incredibly simple way to share the love of Jesus and make new friends.
Now that we're living in a new neighborhood (and hoping to get to know our neighbors), we decided that a resurrection of the Brownie Brigade was in order.
We discussed, as a family, who the first brownie recipients would be and we'll be delivering them today.
Let the fun begin!!!
