I cannot remember a time in my life when my parents didn’t instill us with the message that “to whom much is given, much is expected”. Generosity was very much central to my family when I was growing up. And Ryan and I have tried very hard to make it central to our family as well.
Have you seen any of the viral I Like Giving videos? I have shared a few of them here on the blog and on Facebook. Their mission is simple. To encourage generosity. Simply that. And not necessarily big, grand sweeping gestures of generosity. But simply encouraging all of us to live our lives more generously. So very simple. But imagine if it really caught on. It would radically change the world.
I have known Brad and Laura the founders of I Like Giving for several years. And I was so excited when I found out Brad was writing a book filled with stories of generosity. I knew it would be something worth reading and sharing with others. They asked me if I would share it with my readers and I could not wait!
I Like Giving: The Transforming Power of a Generous Life is inspiring and helpful in giving practical suggestions on easy ways to be generous and how to raise generous kids. Brad tells personal stories and stories shared by others about how to not just be generous with your money but be generous with your life.
