Service vs. Motto

The question frequently comes up regarding exactly what type of service should count towards a Servant’s Heart Awards and what type of service should not.  There is a difference between community service and our motto “If you see a need, take the lead.” If you notice someone in the parking lot needs help loading groceries, you offer to help. That is our motto. If you set aside time to go to the parking lot specifically to find and help people load groceries, that is community service. If you mow the lawn for your neighbor while they are sick, that is

Fruit of the Spirit – Badge #2: Joy

Ideas submitted by Emily Granger   Joy is more than a feeling; it is a way of thinking that can affect not only yourself, but those around you. The first step to leading a joyful life is to change the way you think.  Instead of getting up in the morning grumbling about what’s for breakfast and how you really wanted to sleep for another 15 minutes, change your attitude and be thankful that you have another day to live and enjoy.  Be thankful for the blessings that you have: physical possessions are transitory, but the character we develop will last

Fruit of the Spirit – Badge #1:  Love

Ideas submitted by Emily Granger   This year my troop decided to work on the Fruit of the Spirit Award.  To earn it, you must complete each badge for the nine fruits of the spirit which are the basis for the Frontier Girls creed.  Our journey along this path has made me reflect on my own life and how these nine character traits play a role so I have decided to write a nine part series for the blog, one for each character trait.

Beautiful Make a Difference!

Beth Henderson, an auxiliary Butterfly member of Troop #109 living in Wales, recently did her Make a Difference Award by coordinating the decor for a formal dinner for a Church function.  She designed, drew and coloured the place mats, coasters, name plates and serviette/napkin rings.  She lead 4 other people by having them laminate the mats and coasters; arrange for matching tablecloths of specific sizes; set up the tables; set up the silverware and china, and select matching serviettes (napkins).  The result is stunning, as shown in the photographs! It never ceases to amaze me the creative ways that girls
