“It’s simply about an ordinary man who discovers that living each ordinary day honorably, with faith in God and a selfless concern for others, can make for a truly wonderful life.”

 ~ James Stewart, It’s a Wonderful Life, as told to Richard H. Schneider from Guideposts

In our LIFT Office, our local DFW community and across our nation, people are doing work that matters, work that is impacting lives.

This remarkable work is being done by ordinary, dedicated people who are doing work they believe in, and their work is making the world a better place.

Small. Great. Things.

LIFT Speaks is stories of what people do and their impact on the world. Their stories are inspiring, insightful, and sometimes, hilarious.
