Love Does America
One of our partner ministries anonymously shared ready to give away Love Does toiletry kits with Grace Klein Community. Our friends completed some for us that we can share with you from our office or you can make your own.
Step 1: Source Love Does toiletry kits from GKC or make your own.
Easy to make at home, here’s what you need:
- Ziplock bags
- Index cards with encouraging scripture (you can write these with your kids one night around the dining room table)
- Dental floss
- Hand sanitizer
- Then, place one of each item in a ziplock bag and you are ready for Step 2.
Step 2: Place a box full of the Love Does kits in your car, handy for a passenger to reach, and be ready to share some love.
Think about where you are and who might could use some love in the very place you find yourself.
- Gas station attendants
- Homeless friends
- Fast food workers
- Hospital waiting rooms
- Now smile big, work up some courage and get to know your neighbor.
Step 3: Reflect on how you spread love and consider the next opportunity.
“On a recent holiday trip, we took four boxes of Love Does toiletry kits. If only we could have fit in double that amount. In no time, we were out. I threw one out to a homeless guy prematurely when he was able to walk up to our window when we were actually stopping at the red light. Don’t take the “throw” approach!! Oops. Wait and talk to the person face to face. You are not going to get cooties. We shared love to 36 gas station workers in one location, McDonald’s staff, three other gas stations and even a food line where families needing food could receive ready to heat dishes for Thanksgiving. Even the grouchy guy smiled and received gladly a Love Does kit. Love is easy to share and any age can do it. Isn’t it fascinating that a small bag of toiletries can quickly lead to a conversation about Jesus!! One funny moment was when my son asked the gas station attendant how many people worked at the store, she asked on her head set, the question came back “who’s asking?” and she answered “a kid.” Even bystanders are blessed as they watch the exchange. Everyone is smiling.” – Jenny
