Summer is upon me, and I really don’t want to waste it doing nothing. Do you have any ideas of stuff to do? I’m already volunteering as much as possible for my church, but since we’re awfully small, there’s not much I can do. Any suggestions at all are welcome! Thanks! 🙂

    I volunteer at a therapeutic riding ranch. It’s my life; I absolutely love it! You can do a search for centers near you. YouTube “Praying Hands Ranch” to see where I work. The kids, the horses, the people…I love it all!! 😀

      That sounds like a really neat job CJ! I’ve always liked horses, but I only have the chance to ride them at Grandpa and Grandmas. And also, I’m to busy now with violin practice and the upcoming orchestra season to have a horse. You just have to pick priorities. My priority just happens to be my LOVE for the violin.. 😉

    This summer I’ve been volunteering at a hospital every Thursday with my sister. I am loving it! I am a people person and so I really enjoy escorting people or discharging patients. This past winter I volunteered at a pregnancy center and might do it again this fall. I also do some mowing jobs to make money.

    During the school year, I don’t have time for much of anything besides school. So I’ve spent most of my summer getting things done that I don’t get done the rest of the year. Here’s what I’ve been doing:

    1. Taking summer classes to get ahead on my degree
    2. Organizing my closet, desk, bookshelves, etc. and tossing as much stuff as I can
    3. Babysitting
    4. Teaching piano lessons
    5. House cleaning for a lady I know
    6. Exercising
    7. Helping out around the house as much as possible
    8. Spending time with my siblings
    9. Internships with local medical facilities for school
    10. Playing the piano for church
    11. Playing the the summer community band
    12. Reading all those books that have been gathering dust on my shelf for months
    13. Finishing up some sewing projects

    I help teach different Vacation Bible Schools, Good News Clubs, I have also volunteered at different places. Usually every town has somewhere you can volunteer. You can even volunteer at the library!

    You could try growing herbs or maybe a small tomato, pepper, or strawberry plant in containers. You could try canning or dehydrating what you harvest. Maybe you could take a fun cooking class, or a cake decorating class. You could ask about volunteering at your local library or food pantry. You could sew little things like an a-line skirt, an apron, or a couple baby blankets (you could donate the blankets to a pregnancy center). How about knitting some baby hats and booties to donate to a preagnacy center (you could volunteer there too)?
