Don't forget to make some memories!



June is National Smile Month.  June 15th is Smile Power Day. When you flash your pearly white teeth at people it can brighten their day. A smile shows kindness, offers hope, and can ease a person’s anger, fear, or sadness. Check out verses on asking God to smile on you: Psalm 4:6, Psalm 31:16, and Psalm 119:135.

If you’re not sure you’re ready to smile, pause and think of the blessings in your life for home, family, country, God, and friends. Think of the beauty outdoors and take a walk to listen to birds sing, see squirrels dart about, and watch the leaves dance when the wind blows.

Think of ways to add joy and laughter to go with a smile.

  • Tell a knock-knock joke
  • Give someone a compliment
  • Add a hug or fun handshake to the smile
  • Share reasons you are thankful for that person
  • Share a snack
  • Ask a friend to play with you and let the friend have the first turn in games
  • Make mom smile by doing extra chores
  • Play with your brother or sister.
  • Pass on clothes and toys you don’t need to the poor (God will see them smile).
  • Praise God, so He will smile!
  • Send a letter or card to someone.
  • Call someone. (Can you hear the smile on the phone?)
  • Help a neighbor who is a senior citizen or has small children
  • Have your photo taken with someone and smile for the camera
  • Thank someone for smiling back, being kind, or for a past kindness
  • Praise someone for his or her hard work
