From the author:
It does not matter where you are going or what you are doing, there are opportunities to share the love of God with everyone we encounter. Kindness is free and it produces such a great reward when shared with others. And God said whatsoever you do to the least of the brethren; you do unto me (Matthew 25:40). What a wonderful life value to give to the children.
