Arrow & Lace Christmas Advent – Pay it forward

This Christmas I wanted to do something different and by doing a “pay it forward” advent as it would help show the kids that Christmas is more than “getting” it’s about giving! One thing I know for sure is that when we focus on giving and not receiving it is such an amazing feeling. When I give it makes me happy and less selfish. Maybe you would like to join us with our “pay it forward” advent? Even just pick a few and do them with your friends, spouse, loved ones. If you share on Instagram use hashtag #arrowandlaceadvent so we can all see! I’m so excited to see what God has in store with doing this during the month of December.
