Finding Your Why Through Service

"Everyone can be great because everybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love." - Martin Luther King, Jr. Take a moment to serve those around you this holiday season, and most importantly continually throughout the months to come. To serve others means that you are doing something for the benefit and goodwill of another person or a group of people. When we serve, we are part of something bigger than ourselves and our situation. We look outside of ourselves, past our problems, and look to help others, bringing value, love and kindness.
