Each Friday, the another jennifer blog shares stories of those who incorporate philanthropy into their everyday lives – personally and professionally – in a creative and unique way. If you have a story you’d like to share, please contact Jennifer.
Not long ago, I shared information about an ezine called Impact. I even had the opportunity to contribute to an issue. In that original guest post, it was mentioned that Amy Sullivan, one of the brains behind Impact, would be releasing her first book on generous living in the fall.
I’m excited to share with you that Amy’s book, When More is Not Enough, will be officially release on Monday, September 22nd. I was honored to have been given an electronic copy to read this week, and I can tell you whole-heartedly that it is absolutely worth your time and money.
In the book, Amy talks about the simple concept of generous living. To quote from the book,
“To purge the attitude of youth entitlement, we need to teach our kids to serve others. But, to teach our kids to serve others, we must first look at our attitude toward serving. If our families are to understand self-worth isn’t tied to the world’s standards (Luke 16:14c), we need to implement changes in our own lives, and quickly.”
I don’t want to reveal too much about the book because it’s a quick read that you can enjoy for yourself. It’s set up in a way that each chapter stands alone if you want to skip around. There are several resources in the book and great practical suggestions for applying the theme of each chapter in your home, your community, and the world. Amy’s writing is inspiring and funny, as she shares her honest experiences in her quest to serve others with her family.
The book, When More is Not Enough, is available for pre-order now on Amazon. Amy is also holding a preorder giveaway on her blog.
Oh, and did I mention all of the proceeds of Amy’s book are going to Transformation Village?
I leave you with this great video about the book.
