Here are five ways to make a difference with your life this summer. First of all, summer is the perfect time to enjoy the blush of a couple surprised by an instant date in Central Park, complete with a fancy dinner and a concert with Carnegie Hall musicians.
OK, so you may not have a fancy dinner or musicians from Carnegie Hall to surprise two strangers with, but what can you do to make a difference in someone’s life?
Live your life on purpose! Use your imagination. Gather some friends together. Plan a mini event that will minister validation and joy to someone.
