The Power of a Penny

Little Ways Our Lives Can Count for Something Big

Sometimes we find ourselves feeling like an old penny. Worthless. Forgotten. Discarded. Flattened. Ugly. Yet, like the penny, we still have value, we can make a difference.
We have the power to smile.
We have the power to be kind.
We have the power to be courteous and pleasant.
We have the power to praise.
We have the power to listen.
We have the power to try.
We have the power to care.
We do not lack for power. We just need to recognize what we do have and make the best use of it.
These short selections show readers the path to cultivating the everyday powers, gifts, and opportunities we all have, so as to make a positive difference in our world.
Discover your power, discover the Power of a Penny.
