Growing in Generosity: 4-year-old birthday girl and friends donate books

When Lauren and Josh Strahan decided to throw their daughter Sophi a 4th birthday party, they added an unusual twist: They asked guests, instead of bringing gifts to Sophi, to bring books to be donated to the children at the Wayne Reed Center.

With brand-new books in hand, Sophi’s birthday guests were treated like royalty. They wore princess costumes and enjoyed a royal tea party. And more important, they began learning a vital lesson about generosity.

“We are striving to teach our children that giving is one of the most important things God calls us to do,” Lauren says. “That’s always a good reminder for mom and dad as well!”

Thank you, Sophi and your little friends for giving these wonderful books to the Wayne Reed Center! You are an example to all of us.
