I Like Giving: The Transforming Power of a Generous Life (Paperback)
Rich with inspiring stories and practical suggestions, I Like Giving will help you create a lifestyle of generosity.
Choosing to live a generous life can transform you and the world around you. Something incredible happens when giving becomes your own idea, not something you do out of duty or obligation. When you move from awareness to action, miracles happen. As you make giving a lifestyle, you’ll realize you’re not only loving life more, you’re also creating a more generous world— a better world for all of us.
Inside you’ll find tips about:
• Thinking of giving as something you get to do, not something you have to do.
• How to raise kids with a sensitivity to others’ needs.
• Making a difference without being a millionaire.
• Practical ideas for ways to give to people around you every day.
I Like Giving shows you how to experience the joy of giving because we all have something to give. Beyond money or things, giving can be a listening ear, a touch, or simply the gift of time. Giving is living.
