eGrace for 11/9/2017

Hey, Grace’rs,

This weekend: We continue our series: Harnessing the Power of Kindness at Home, at Work, and in the World. Families with last names starting with G-K have the food table this weekend.

For this series I want to strongly recommend you purchase an excellent book on the topic by Shaunti Feldhahn called, The Kindness Challenge. She presents a practical 30 day challenge for implementing the power of kindness in your relationships. You can order it here (and remember to put Grace as your charity).

I also encourage you to go to www.jointhekindnesschallenge.com and hit the sign up link. You will receive a daily email for 30 days with insights into making kindness a habit.

If you missed the message on Kindness last weekend you can view it here.
