Some of these experiences and emotions can push you into very dark places. I am begging you to come to me in those dark times, or any times, and just reach out. The things that you will experience in these formative years will be powerful, transforming, and even overwhelming at times. You need to know that…

So a good deed can create a ripple effect, improving the day of dozens beyond the original giver or receiver. The Goddard School in Anderson Township thought these benefits were so compelling that they created a Good Deeds Week in their Summer Camp this year.  School-age campers spent a week talking about…
