Influence and Being Known By Dr. Halee Gray Scott

The Influence of Future Generations and The Need to Be Known The influence of the Protestant church in America – even in the Southern states, the so-called Bible belt – is waning.

Inflating Generosity

Inflating Generosity by Ron Frey

Inflating Generosity and It’s Impact on Giving I’ve got a secret. I am a billionaire, and you can be too. Here is the proof: a twenty-billion-dollar bill from the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe.
