That's how many people have invested in my children this year. In church. In clubs. In sports.Thirty-six people have poured into my kids week-in and week-out all year long. And I'm grateful.
It would be really easy...albeit economically challenging...for me to just pick up thirty-six gift cards or holiday gift boxes this Christmas to thank them all. But the truth is, I want my children to contribute to the gift out of their own gratefulness. I want them to acknowledge the very large sacrifice that each of these 36 men and women have given all year.
