Week 4: Serve

We are designed to be givers and not just takers. To take hold of a weapon of spirit and look out for our friends and our neighbors.

If we're willing to prioritize the needs of others, to reach for our best things to give, and to carve out time to serve, we will discover the transformation rewards that come only from heroic love. The rewards are great, but the motivation to do nothing can be greater…push through! Be STRONG!
