In October, at our Tennessee Light The Way event we provided $20 bills to event attendees and challenged them to give away the money away and share their stories of generosity. Read how God moved and inspired individuals to live out values with their families.
I was inspired by the presentation given by the CEO of Tractor Supply and his emphasis on establishing a culture of giving at home in the family. I have 4 kids 2 boys 2 girls ages 14, 12, 9, and 5. I shared with them at the dinner table what I had learned and then gave them each $5 from the $20 given to us at the conference. I then gave them the task of finding someone in their class at school that was less fortunate than they and giving them the money.
Don’t despise small beginnings right!!

Mary, a friend of mine is planning to take her family to Disneyworld & her mother who has serious health problems & is in a wheelchair. She has been saving her money for a long time & is waiting for the Dr. to give his permission for her mother to take this trip. She is in & out of the hospital regularly. Her mother realizes she could die on the trip, but said she would rather die while having fun. Mary was blessed by the $20 gift, and I was blessed to give it to her as I shared with her how this all came about. I continue to learn how the small things we give others like a prayer, a hug, an encouraging word or a gift of money bless me more than I can say.
