Review: I Like Giving by Brad Formsma

"One reason community is so important is that living isolated from the people around you makes it really hard to give."

LadyD Books Review

This is a powerful book with simple words to understand but it comes with a dynamic punch that will turn your life around. I think so many of us have heard the expression, 'It's more blessed to give than receive.' We get the concept and have applied it now and then, especially when it's convenient for us. 

Here the author gives us a plethora of examples of shared testimonies and heartfelt stories of the giving experience. What I personally gleaned is that giving is a way of life, looking for the opportunity to meet a need, and it can be in the form of a smile of encouragement or in helping someone get a new car. Do we want to spend our lives always caring for material stuff we gather in this lifetime or simply be motivated by a universal principle of giving to our fellow man? 

This is an easy book to read, but as you go deeper perhaps you'll be challenged with the choice to become aware of others needs and be an instrument of generosity. I think you'll be amazed at the many opportunities that come your way and how you will grow as a person. For sure, you will be rewarded with a renewed passion and unending joy to give more frequently and the world will be a better place.

I really liked this book and give it 4/5 stars. Recommend it! Many of the stories will leave you teary-eyed while other testimonies will shock and awe you because they are over the top stories. Such a blessing to see the children and parents so deeply involved in giving... I get it!
