Personal Stories About ‘Reaching Out’

  • REACHING OUT

    Learning To Give

    In the United States we have many material blessings available to us. However, oftentimes we do not share those blessings with others. While on a trip to Romania I learned a very important law of life: give of yourself and your possessions every chance you have. During July of 1999, I, along with eight others,...

    Making Friends, Losing Enemies

    About five years ago I started at a new school, when my family moved to Iowa. I was just a little excited, but I worried I would never fit in with the other sixth graders. Lucy, a girl in my class, who I thought was not ready for change, didn't like me from the start. In fact, I was pretty sure she hated me....

    I volunteered with the Challenger League, a baseball team for young adults with physical disabilities. One day, a young man hit a home run and we ran around the bases - nothing unusual. However, it was unusually quiet in the stands. Later, I was told that this young man was autistic and didn't like people...

    Michaella

    Michaella is my hero. When she was just 14, Michaella helped create the Exceptional Rodeo for children with disabilities. She and her local 4-H Club raised over $2,000 to fund the rodeo, which included 'bucking' broncos (made of hay and barrels), calf roping, and stick horse barrel racing. As a result of...

This is touching.
Ashley, victorville

If you see someone new at the school you just walk over and say hi.
Chris Napolion, Vicksburg

This commercial really inspired me! I was in Sunday School a while ago, and the ten-year-old granddaughter of the teacher was there. She doesn't go to our church, and she was sitting at a table with the teacher and the assistant. I could tell she wanted to sit with somebody else without having to ask, so I asked her to sit beside me. Her whole face just lit up, and she thanked me again and again. It felt so good to do that, I try to do it every day at least once. Thank you!
