Giving: A Home

It’s Generosity day!

In his book, Our Better Angels, Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity, tells the story of Bob Karlstrand. Bob showed up at a Habitat office with a terminal illness wanting to give them his house. He requested that it go to a veteran. Bonnie, a Navy vet, and her grandson were chosen to buy Bob’s home. She put in sweat equity from her wheelchair due to a back injury, with the help of other volunteers.

Besides the house, Bob honored the nurses who cared for his parents by giving the University of Minnesota nursing school a million-dollar endowed scholarship. How we steward the money and days God gives us, impacts our life and the lives of others.
