About this title

Synopsis:

Much more than a “self-help” book — and far from the standard scriptural treatise on tithing — GIVING THANKS is all about personal empowerment. “Each of us has our own issues around giving and receiving that we need to heal,” is the author’s abiding theme. Her insightful guide to this healing process is both practical and inspirational, tackling fears about tithing and attachments to gifts we give. All the while offering a new perspective on the half-full/half-empty glass we call life. Ryan begins by providing readers with a brief history of tithing, and then moves on to dispel myths and misperceptions that have prevented people from embracing tithing in the past: “You do not have an obligation to tithe, you have an opportunity to tithe.” She then outlines how to give and receive without attachment, guilt or shame, and how to recognize the many forms abundance takes (only one of which is monetary) in one’s life. Her book also addresses a subject previously avoided in tithing books, but which has caused countless people to miss out on the benefits of tithing: how to tithe when money is tight and stepping out in faith feels more like stepping into quicksand. GIVING THANKS also explores how the fear of not having ‘enough’ has become an ingrained habit and demonstrates concrete strategies for breaking that habit. This book walks you through how to “give with gratitude, focus on what you truly desire, release your attachment to how it comes to you, and receive with gratitude.” Particularly helpful for anyone who likes to see how others have benefited from tithing, this book contains anecdotal accounts of real people’s tithing breakthroughs, as well as a list of more than 50 intentions used by others to expand their view of prosperity.

From the Inside Flap:

From the Foreword, by Catherine Ponder: author, Dynamic Laws of Prosperity: “Tithing has been described as 'the permanent road to prosperity'. This book shows you how!” - Catherine Ponder Ask most people what tithing is about and most would respond “asking for more money” or “a Biblical law or obligation to give 10% to stay in God's good graces.” If that's all tithing is about, why do some people tithe and prosper, yet others tithe and watch their spiritual leaders prosper—with their own financial situation languishing year after year? What if tithing is less about what you give and more about how you give it? The sooner you change the way you tithe, not only with your money but also with your thoughts, words, actions, time, efforts and possessions, the better off – and happier – you will be. So says Paula Langguth Ryan, author of the first book to give tithing an attitude adjustment: GIVING THANKS (Pellingham Casper, $17.95 paperback, November 2005) Much more than a “self-help” book—and far from the standard scriptural treatise on tithing—GIVING THANKS is all about personal empowerment. “Each of us has our own issues around giving and receiving that we need to heal,” is the author's abiding theme. Her insightful guide to this healing process is both practical and inspirational, tackling fears about tithing and attachments to gifts we give. All the while offering a new perspective on the half-full/half-empty glass we call life. Ryan begins by providing readers with a brief history of tithing, and then moves on to dispel myths and misperceptions that have prevented people from embracing tithing in the past: “You do not have an obligation to tithe, you have an opportunity to tithe.” She then outlines how to give and receive without attachment, guilt or shame, and how to recognize the many forms abundance takes (only one of which is monetary) in one's life. Her book also addresses a subject previously avoided in tithing books, but which has caused countless people to miss out on the benefits of tithing: how to tithe when money is tight and stepping out in faith feels more like stepping into quicksand.Ryan brings broad expertise to this subject. The author of Bounce Back From Bankruptcy: A Step-By-Step Guide to Getting Back on Your Financial Feet, Ryan deftly combines personal finance and inspirational advice to give readers a roadmap to the successful life they truly desire.A Contemporary Prosperity Advisor, Ryan is considered by many to be the leader of the next generation of new thought teachers – the heir-apparent in an area pioneered by John Randolph Price, Catherine Ponder and others. GIVING THANKS marks the first time Catherine Ponder (founder of Unity Church Worldwide) has written a Foreword to a living author's work.GIVING THANKS also explores how the fear of not having 'enough' has become an ingrained habit and demonstrates concrete strategies for breaking that habit. This book walks you through how to “give with gratitude, focus on what you truly desire, release your attachment to how it comes to you, and receive with gratitude.”
