A Different Kind of Giving

By Mal Keenan



As we work to create light for others,
we naturally light our own way.

Mary Anne Radmacher

I love this quote. Creating light for others really does brighten up our own lives, and during the holiday season, people are more willing to shed light on adults and children in need. This is true in my own family. We have been deliberate in asking our sons to volunteer and help those less fortunate during the Christmas season. As a family, we brainstormed possible ways to get involved and we will work together to donate our time, energy, and resources. The spirit of giving is easy to instill into children and has long lasting effects while lighting our way.
