“Creating a Culture of Service” at the BYU-Hawaii Women’s Organization Luncheon
Thursday, January 10, 2019 on the BYU-Hawaii campus, with copresenter and book contributor Michelle Henderson
“[Our] collective wisdom . . . can create a true service culture that should exist [throughout] the Savior’s Church,” said Elder Per G. Malm of the Seventy. But how do we create that service culture in our own lives and in our families, when our lives are so full already? How can we involve our children in service? The presentation was featured in the BYU-Hawaii magazine Kealaka’i. The article is titled “Awareness towards one’s emotions leads to a culture of service” The presentation featured excerpts from all three of our books. Co-presenter Michelle Henderson is a contributor to both Sunday Lessons and Activities for Kids and Girls’ Camp: Ideas for Today’s Leaders. Many thanks to student writer Esther Insigne and student photographer Chad Hsieh for their terrific coverage. (Photos by Chad Hsieh)
