What does it mean to live a truly generous life?

After all, generosity is much more than writing checks...it is about ordinary people seeking to live well with what God has entrusted them. Learn the secrets of the giver's journey through 21 short stories of those who are examples of:

-Generous family: a school janitor who is a father figure for a city
-Generous love: a 24-year-old who loves a dying man
-Generous checkbook: a business founder who gives hilariously
-Generous life: a young adult who combats sex trafficking
-Generous land: a woman who gives up beloved Colorado property
-Generous career: a business owner who holistically invests in employees
-And more…

Often, it is in other stories that you find your own. These stories, along with the thought-provoking questions at the end of each chapter, will challenge and inspire you to discover what the generous life means for your own story.
