12 Days of Christmas Kindness – Day Eight
It’s Day Eight of 12 Days of Christmas Kindness, giving simple and doable ideas for reaching out to others during the Christmas season. If you’re just joining us, catch up on each day here.
For Day Eight, let’s send some social media love!
Today’s challenge is one you can do right from the warmth of your home. Simply let some love fly from your fingertips as you tell five people on social media what you love most about them. Be sure to use lots of emojis.
Now for today’s giveaway!!!
Today I’m joined by my friend, the hospitable and domestically talented Logan Wolfram. She is a plate-juggling mom and interior decorator turned writer, speaker, and author. Logan’s first book, Curious Faith; Rediscovering Hope in the God of Possibility was released earlier this year and she currently has a fun free ebook available called Winter Warmers that contains both recipes to warm your tummy and stories to warm your heart. You can connect also with Logan on Facebook Instagram, and Twitter.
Logan’s Day Four Giveaway is a signed copy of her Curious Faith book, a hand-painted 5×7 print of Psalm 31:24 (yes, painted by Logan herself!) a “Curious” key necklace, and a copy of one of her favorite books for devotional use: “The Secrets of the Secret Place” by Bob Sorge.

Now let’s go scatter some Christmas kindness and be sure to come back tomorrow!
Use LOTS of Facebook stickers and characters! :) Absolutely! I always do…..too much, but no one has complained! :D :D :D :D
Yes, something easy we all can do!!!
Excited to do this!
What fun these ideas are
I’m not a big social media user but I’m sure some friends would like this.
Love this encouragement to “speak” aloud the praise of others! Thanks, Karen! xoxo
I sent some love and everyone was so very appreciative. It’s amazing what a few simple words can do for a person’s day.
I shared some love with a dear friend that I don’t tell nearly enough how much I appreciate her! She in turn sent me a heartfelt message about how it made her day, especially since she was having a rough day! It is amazing how God works! His timing is perfect!
Love this thought… It’s so easy to avoid social media due to negativity, but this is a super effective “spin” on using it.
Sharing kindness of social media is a excellent idea especially when there so much negativity on there.
Such a great idea! Get bogged down reading facebook and wishing folks Happy Birthday!! But what a nice thing to just reach out to folks on any day and say THANKS and scatter kindness!! DONE!!!
This was so much fun!
This is one of my favorites so far.
There is a mom I recently met at my son’s school. She shared about how she and her ex-dh share their daughter on Christmas. I was really blown away by how selflessly they do it. Great opportunity to tell her. :)
A great way to use social media which I tend to avoid due to all the negativity.
I do froward devotions on face book. It is a very effective way to bring cheer and comfort in your friend’s lives. Psalm 40:4 a ” Oh the joys of those who trust in the Lord.” Psalm 68:19 ” Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.”
Not on social media myself but definitely am encouraged by many who are…those who write blogs etc. Just started texting a year ago so I like this idea of using modern day technology to encourage someone!
Scattering Kindness on Social media, what an easy way to brighten someone’s day!
I spent all morning grading papers and telling my students what I appreciated about their papers. For someone who doesn’t social media, it’s the best I can do.
#12DaysOfChristmasKindness #ListenLoveRepeat Thank you Karen and Logan for Day 8 of Scattering Christmas Kindness. Many people can be blessed by this idea. We do this as a family on a daily basis with many people. We also like to share a bible verse with them too.
Love sharing positive messages of love on social media!
Surprisingly, this one was kind of a challenge for me. I had to think of people that I could zip a message to that probably needed it without thinking “Okay, that was so random for her to do…..”
