It hurts at times when you see your little guy fail on the football field. He eats dust but gets back up to line up again.

A positive new book, A Pocketful of Seeds, gathers 12 months’ worth of seed-sowing actions for each day of the year. Some seek answers; some are creative; some ask reflective questions; almost all of them calls to action. They are short opportunities to make an impact and draw out a better world by fostering an attentiveness to connect with others through love, kindness, and service.
