  1. ‘Maybe because I knew the sting of being poor. It carved a deep fear in my little girl heart.’

    Oh Lysa, I relate to this so much! I’m praying that God will help me in this area, to become more of a cheerful giver and trust that He will meet the needs of my family. Thank you for this post.

  2. I love and want to give more but face a dilemma. My husband isn’t saved and doesn’t get it YET! I do work and do the best I can, but would love to give more freely WITH my husband

  3. What you are doing, your example of generous giving, inspires. My family had the blessing of a challenge yesterday, from pastor to congregation. He remarked that the homeless often need shoes, and not just our worn out cast offs. What if we would give them something we really like? Like the shoes we wore to church? And he proceeded to toss his new shoes in the tub. By the time we left, the tub was overflowing with a yes most of us hadn’t envisioned earlier that same morning. We can look for-and respond to– the opportunities all around us, daily, if we are willing. Thank you for demonstrating willingness.

  4. Both of these right here… “Maybe because I knew the sting of being poor. It carved a deep fear in my little girl heart. Or maybe I was hesitant because I can be selfish and forgetful and wrapped up in my own little world.”

    Lysa, thank you for these words. We just recently added two ministries to our giving as a family even though most days I don’t think our budget can afford it. Hoping some day soon my budget will find room for your book… until then, it’s going on my Christmas list! 🙂
