I'm a redeemed child of God and the momma to four vivacious daughters. I'm passionate about finding hidden blessings in the trials of life, living it out in an honest and open way, while encouraging those around me to believe in better.


rack :: download edition

I’ve been amazed, humbled and excited to see this project burning up Pinterest!

I’ve had tons of emails asking for the download, so I thought I’d put together a recap post of our Random Acts of Christmas Kindness {RACK} activity from last year’s Advent season, as well as a couple of bonus downloads!

You can read the original post of our activity here, and a wrap-up of the activity here.

The girls and I loved every minute of this activity.  It definitely took some time and commitment to stick to it, but I’m so glad we did … we walked away so incredibly blessed … and I promise you will too!

So … you ready for the downloads?  Here’s the download for the “you’ve been RACK’ed” card.  And as a bonus, I put the individual RACK’s into one file, and you can download it here.

I’ve also noticed that this Advent activity has been circulating, so as a bonus, bonus … I’ve put together a pdf of the Bible verses we used.

OH! and I also found a site selling cute library Advent cards that you can write individual activities on … perfect for this Advent project!

Praying God’s blessings over each of you during this Advent season!

  5. Can’t wait to start again this year! I think I’m doing a 12 day RACK countdown instead of our full countdown… with the NEW little person in our lives I don’t know how much we will be getting out this year!!! :):) But I do have my books wrapped and ready to go. Isn’t this the most SPECIAL and WONDERFUL time of the year?

    I found this on Pinterest, naturally…where all great ideas meet! I love it so much-not only am I going to do this myself, I am getting my girls involved and telling as many people as I can about it hoping they will do the same. I can’t wait for December 1st! By sharing, I believe you have managed to change one day of someone’s life and therefore causing a chain reaction that ultimately changes other peoples lives (for the better) by posting. Exciting!! Be blessed.

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!! I love your idea and found it on pintrest and then discovered that you have posted these downloads. When I discovered your original post I told my husband that we are doing this!!!! I’m EXCITED to teach my boys about being generosity and giving this advent season.

  12. Lori says:

    I *love* the pink ribbon/tape you used…can you share where to purchase it? Thank you! I’m excited to TRY this with my family this season!!! :)

  13. Lori says:

    I am SO excited to do this project with my family…we’ve been brainstorming ideas all day over our Thanksgiving meal! ;) I appreciate all of your hard work and the downloads you have provided…I wonder if you would ever consider providing a download of a “blank” RACK activities file…so we can fill in our own ideas? I can’t figure out how to edit the file in Adobe PDF (this is probably just my lack of knowledge…) but I would love to print out the activity cards and then we can fill them in as we have ideas to add! Just a thought! Thanks so much! :) And, Happy Thanksgiving!

  14. Sarah Parson says:

    I absolutely loved this idea as soon as I saw it on Pinterest and am absolutely thrilled to have just found the downloads. I’m so excited to start this December 1st. Thanks again for the inspiration and for all the work you put in to it and are now sharing with others.

    What a wonderful thing to do for Advent! Saw this on ucreate and can’t wait to do it with my kiddos!

  16. Kelli says:

    I can’t believe another year has gone by! I swore I was going to do this with the boys the next time around and it’s here! I’m so excited! Thanks Tracie!

  17. Chris says:

    Just wanted to let you know that a friend of mine posted your link on her facebook page. Because of that, we are doing this with our three kids this year! They are super excited!! Our 8 year old has been making lists of things we can do for days. Thank you for passing along the idea – especially as a way for us to remember the reason for the season :)

  18. […] The first day of December has arrived and I have been meaning to tell you about a great way you can reach out to others this Christmas season. Check out this web site for a great idea: http://www.traciestierjohnson.com/rack-download-edition/ […]

    This is exactly what I was looking for this year. Thank you soooo much for posting this. We have had fun coming up with some ideas, as well. Tonight we taped packs of microwave popcorn to Redbox machines with the “RACK’ed” notes. The kids had a blast, and I think it will help all of us keep Christ in the center of this holiday season.

  20. Heather Lolley says:

    I love this so much. we are starting late but that is so ok. I have three kids,2 girls and a boy. One will be 17 in 2 weeks, one is 11 and my boy is 9. they are excited about making plans for a nursing home visit. can someone please post some more good Bible verses with the lessons you did with your kids. I thought that was just so special. Thanks so much and have a wonderful christmas

  22. […] next year for sure. I can’t describe it better than the lovely Miss Tracie… Read about RACK . We will also be doing this throughout the year… I might have to morph the name to Random […]

  23. Jennifer says:

    My son goes to a private christian school, so they of course stress the true meaning of Christmas. I will be discussing this with his teacher to hopefully get his whole class involved. Will let ypu know how it turns out!!!! Wonderful idea¿¡

  24. Susan says:

    I love this idea! Did you put the “racked” note on the candy canes when you handed them out? I know you did when you were not there but what about when you were there? Does this make sense?

  25. JRhoades says:

    I just came across this on Pinterest & I can’t wait to do this as our 25 days of Christmas Countdown with my kids. Not only that, But I also have a Church group of girls ages 8-9 & I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to do this with them at the beginning of Dec as their service project! Thank You for this post & your downloads!!
