'I'm Trying to be like Jesus' focus for February

In January we introduced our family to our Motto for 2012.  For this month and each month after, we have chosen to focus on ONE quality of the Savior, and have that as a monthly theme.  For the Month of February our Focus is on Jesus served others, I can serve others too.  The first Monday of the month for FHE, we will introduce and teach our monthly focus.  Here is the outline for February:

Song:  I'm Trying to Be Like Jesus (we're still trying to learn the 2nd verse to this)
Opening Prayer:
Scripture:  Mosiah 2:17 & Matthew 25:40
Lesson: Read or Talk about some of the ways Jesus served others. . . .
*Jesus washing his disciples feet - John 13:4-15
*Jesus fed the Hungry
*Healed the Sick -(I'll be sharing the story of the Ten Lepers in Luke 17:12-19)
*Blessed those in need
Activity:  17-second Miracle Notebook idea from here to teach that service doesn't have to take a lot of time.  Through even small, quick acts of service we can still make a difference in the lives of others.  I want to emphasize the need to not only serve others, but to also allow & recognize service others do for us (and even 17-second miracles they witness others doing).
Treats:  Brownies (Make more than enough and take some to a family, widow, or couple in need.)
