This theme was touched upon in another thread and I wanted to discuss it further.

I believe in helping in ways that my talents and skills are most utilized.

I ask because I think volunteering is simply that, volunteering no matter for an organization or personal.


I volunteered as a candy striper as a teenager and with my local animal shelter. Now I volunteer with my local animal shelter and with my community.


Yes, both parents also volunteered. They volunteered with the schools, church, the local animal sheleter and habit for humanity.


I enjoy watching sports,

I think we all find our place.


I love the homemaker stuff.

Didn't you say you were Methodist? Forgive me if that wasn't you.

I don't think the question is too personal, but if someone says the answer is too personal to share it's kind of a nice thing to take her at her word.

No, I'm not. I have family, friends that are Methodist. That is fine that you asked, thanks for being so polite.

I think there are many different ways. None of them on the list of volunteering are to me more right.


I do think people see volunteering, if they do or don't, how they do if they do in many different ways and they have different feelings about either volunteering or not but I don't think there is one answer that is universal for all.

I have hobbies. I love and enjoy them. I have absolutely zero need for anyone else to find any value in them, however and readily admit, they provide very little to the outside world--sufficient to the point that if someone called them meaningless hobbies, I would laugh and agree.

I mean, as Jesus said, "From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked." In my faith system, this is a clear call to those of us blessed with gifts, including that of wealth, that we are called to do something productive with it, not sit on our 3rd point of contact watching Peg Bundy (God love her) and scrapbooking all day.

Neither you, nor anyone else, gets to decide what someone else considers too personal.
