A Different Kind of Giving

In my book, giving used to mean some sort of financial contribution. What I’ve come to know is that for many people it’s not so much about the money; it’s about a sense of connection.   And actually, sometimes it might be time, attention, and energy that are short, rather than money.   Giving differently might be taking the time …

Giving From The Heart

I’m curious to hear the way ‘heart-giving’ sits for you. Let me explain my context.
