Purging, Giving, and a Gift Guide
by John Phillips
A few weeks ago my wife texted me asking if I had any clothes to give away because one of her students was homeless and in need. My heart sank. I didn’t hesitate to respond “yes”. The minute I got home I went straight to my closet and did a quick assessment to start purging: shirts, sweaters, shoes, whatever I didn’t wear often left my closet.
It felt good to not only help someone else in need, but to trim the fat from my closet as well. This is the time of year that everyone should do this.
