We love opportunities in which families can minister together. We are pretty much of the mindset that if we can't do it as a family, we can't do it. And you know, there are always still plenty of ways to minister and bring our babes alongside.
This is one of the many reasons we couldn't be more impressed with the Riverbend Ranch Charity Carnival. Not only is the Kjeldgaard family practicing true religion, they are teaching their little ones to act with the same compassion that fuels them.
Under the management of their parents, these young people staffed game booths with Christian families, contacted local business people for donations of goods and services for the raffles, coordinated countless details and then served alongside the volunteers all day themselves.

Saturday's carnival was fantastic. Not only was it an incredibly fun event at the gorgeous Kjeldgaard ranch, the carnival actually earned above and beyond their goals and expectations! It was exciting to be a part of something so sincere and god honoring.
It was a fun day for the entire family. There were games and rides...
and painted faces.
All for a good cause.
