Our Empathy Building

Happy Thursday. First, this beautiful collage of gratitude from Germany as a follow-up to our Sweets For Our Soldiers campaign. It makes our hearts happy to see them bathed in our Valentines, support and love.  

Second, this chair.

It just showed up in my office last week. Randomly. Because our handyman Fred noticed that I'd been sitting on a kid-sized chair with no padding and no wheels. The most thoughtful gifts are all about the noticing, aren't they?

Third, please join me in praying for the Parkland community and the Douglas High School family. Their hearts are broken as they try to understand the horrific events that unfolded there yesterday. 

School shootings, says character-education guru and parenting expert Dr. Michele Borba, are preventable. It takes intentional work every single day, 
but it's more than worth it for 
every child that we help, 
every heart that we heal, 
every life that we save.
