520    77 Ways Your Family Can Make a Difference is an easy-to-
       use resource that parents can use to cultivate compassion 
       in their children and engage their family in acts of 
       service. Filled with suggestions, activities, Bible verses,
       and topics for discussion, this re-usable manual inspires 
       families to look for ways to make the world a better place
       by making a difference in the lives of others. Features 
       include: creative activities that can be adapted to fit 
       your unique family; service ideas for a variety of 
       budgets; Bible verses at the end of each activity to help 
       children connect the practical aspects of God's truth to 
       their lives; interactive discussion questions to help 
       teens understand the importance of each activity and 
       correlate it to God's word; suggestions that encourage 
       whole families--parents, kids, grandparents, and other 
       relatives--to spend time together as they practice 
       biblical servanthood. In addition to families, these ideas
       and activities can be easily adapted to use with youth 
       groups, Sunday School classes, home school curriculums, 
       small-groups, and church-wide community projects.--From
