The generous life is the only life worth living.
Brad Formsma’s book “I Like Giving” shares various encouraging and everyday stories of living a generous life. The author shares his own story of generosity and in each chapter brings more real-life stories to support his points. He encourages the readers to find there own way of giving.
The book explores more than just giving financial gifts to charity organizations and goes to the very heart of the matter. He shares even the science of giving and tactics for giving. Motives are also discussed and this is not a “here’s how to be a millionaire by giving money” type of book. I’ve read plenty of those.
The stories inside inspired me to rethink my thoughts on generosity. If you would have asked me before if I considered myself generous I would have said yes and pointed to my tithes and offerings. I do know that’s a big part of being generous, but the book explores other ways in which to live the generous life.
If you are looking to be inspired to change the world one person at a time, “Like Giving” shares lots of practical stories that will help you along in your journey. I found myself getting teary eyed and encouraged as I imagined the people in each of the stories. I hope you have a chance to pick up this book and put the generous life into motion.
