Tips for Today:
Start your day grateful: Pray together. Use the time to share and praise God for one thing you're grateful for.
Bible before phone: Set an alarm and even a morning lock on every app except the Bible.
Make the most of car time: turn off the music and start a conversation with people in the car or on the phone. If you are alone use the silence to pray and hear from God.
Build relationships: Spend one a mealtime a week (breakfast or coffee, lunch, and dinner) with someone who isn't in your family.
Give encouragement: On the first day of every month, tell someone face to face why they matter to you and praise them for something good they have done.
Get to know your neighbors: Don't just wave at your neighbor. Stop and have a conversation.
Lend your neighbor a hand: On your yard days, offer to cut your neighbor's grass, pressure wash something that needs it, or wash their vehicle.
Do a random act of kindness: Pay for someone's coffee or meal in the drive-thru or the groceries of someone in your checkout line.
Tips after Social Distancing:
Bless people and your food: When you eat with others, pray a blessing over them.
Make the most of Sunday: Pick out one person at your gathering you don’t know, introduce yourself, and make conversation.
Give people full attention: When you are in a social situation, make it a rule for everyone to turn off their phones, put them in a basket, stack them on the table or just leave them in the car.
Do life together: Each week, give up a solitary activity you enjoy to spend uninterrupted time with people you enjoy.
Invite neighbors to your celebration: Ask them to join you for random cookouts or holidays like Memorial Day, July Fourth, Labor Day, or Halloween.
