How to make a positive impact on a world spread thin

We are currently living in a time when it feels as if we are not doing enough, yet, we are also busier than ever.

Hustle and bustle season has arrived! Kids are back at school, fall sports are underway, holiday season is quickly approaching, and we have just begun our final quarter of the year. Needless to say, people will be under a lot of pressure for the next few months.
