A Heart for Giving

Posted by Luke Bedford on

Posted by Jenna Winegeart on

I’m in the middle of learning that it’s not so much what I do, but why I do it that matters. It all boils down to motive. I could be the best wife on the planet. I could rise before the sun to make my family a hot breakfast, drop off and pick up my husband’s clothes from the...
