See the link for an ad about my books and music in the Paperclips Magazine. They sought me out when they discovered my I Will Stand book! If you are interested in a spiritual resource for a Christmas gift, my book table is set up this week at Meriden Hills Baptist Church/MidState Christian Academy. Merry Christmas, and may God bless you richly in 2017!

say a prayer for them, offer them grace by forgiving them,

and try to encourage them the best I can. I will represent

God’s voice by speaking kind words, even when they don’t

that my kindness will shine the love of Jesus through me,

possibly reaching someone who has never experienced that

before! I will look for opportunities to perform random

acts of kindness, being a leader by treating those around

me with respect. I will show common courtesy by having

good manners, letting others go before me, and placing a

high priority on the needs of others. I will be thoughtful,

showing concern toward those who are hurting and doing

what I can to help.

I will stand for kindness.
