Have you ever wanted to do something kind for someone, but weren’t sure what to do? Karen Ehman is on the show sharing creative ways to make a difference in the lives of other people. She’s written a devotional titled “Make Their Day” with 101 simple and practical ideas to love others well. 

We discuss:

We believe when you make someone else’s day, it will make your day too. I can’t wait for you to hear today’s conversation—101 love offering ideas?! Yes, please!
