There is no question that giving service makes a difference in our lives. Listen as Jason Wright, the author of the best-selling books Christmas Jars and The Seventeen Second Miracle, examines the power of performing service. Whether the service is large or small, the simple act of reaching outside of ourselves can have life-changing effects.
