An Atlanta family has received a lot of publicity for their decision to sell their big home, buy a smaller one and use the profits to help those in need. The Salwen family says it all started when their 14-year-old daughter Hannah became upset with the unequal chances for people based on their wealth. By selling their home, the family used the $800,000 to do a lot of work in two dozen villages in Ghana.
From what I've read about the family, I can't really tell you about their faith commitment. Regardless, it begs the question: Could you majorly downsize your life, like this family did, to help the poor?
