Kindness is Contagious: 100 Stories to Remind You God is Good and So are Most People
What if there really were a secret to happiness well within our grasp? Perhaps there is! We often think of kindness as something that flows from our surplus: our extra time, extra energy or extra resources, leaving us to ask, “How can I possibly give to others when I don’t have enough for myself?” But kindness is like a secret passageway through which God blesses us while we bless others. Columnist, blogger and motivational speaker Nicole J Phillips challenges your focus through the stories that often go untold in our society. Let Kindness is Contagious: 100 Stories to Remind You God is Good and So are Most People, become your secret passageway to a life full of purpose and joy! These are real life stories sent in by kindness lovers from across the United States for original publication in The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead Newspaper.

13yr.old Jordan Phillips Founder of Cozy for the Cure, as seen on NBC
“Hi, I’m Jordan! I started making Cozy for the Cure products in 2015 to support my mom during her fight with breast cancer. I was just 11 years old when I started, but since then, I’ve raised more than $12,000 for the Susan G. Komen foundation. I’ve even been featured in a national awareness campaign, but the best part is knowing that I’m helping to fund programs that serve women where I live in Southeastern Ohio. Thanks to your purchase of this hand-made product, SEW are you!”
