Inspiring morning at Dayton Christian School

I give a big shout out to Dayton Christian School Librarian Jodi Brown! Jodi coordinated a school visit for me to share my book The Seagoing Cowboy with the Dayton Christian Elementary School students in chapel this morning. But she did much more than that. Since last spring, she has been sharing her enthusiasm with school staff and students for the work of Heifer International to which my book relates. The students inspired me by energetically raising funds to buy several animals for Heifer, exemplifying the school’s mission of “Building Foundations, Changing Lives,” and being “the Salt and Light of the World.” Read more in DCS Communications Director Melissa Geiss’s report on the DCS website.
