You can influence the culture with the message of biblical generosity. And it can start in your own relationships. Here’s how I’ve seen that come to life. I recently facilitated a Journey of Generosity (JOG) in a city where there has been little Generous Giving activity. There were six couples in attendance. One of the attendees […]

Whose Plan Is It?

In the doctor’s waiting room two people sat near me reading magazines. The middle-aged woman looked up and said, “Can you believe this presidential campaign?” The other person looked up, as did I. “No, I can’t,” he replied. Our conversation evolved into a discussion of the needs in our city. The woman shared about a […]

Say YES and Watch God Work

Sometimes, saying a big “yes” to God is the result of saying a lot of small “yeses”—what Eugene Peterson calls “a long obedience in the same direction.” This has certainly been true in the life of Lisa Adams, who was introduced to the generosity message at Women Doing Well’s Inspiring Generous Joy event in Denver.

Tell Your Family Story: It’s Better Because It’s Messy!

All good stories have a messy middle. Characters start off filled with hope but soon enough, tension arrives and it looks like everything is falling apart.

Living with Purpose in Your Next Season

 “As I waved a stack of insurance papers in the air, I said to my husband, ‘I’m afraid you are going leave me with this mess.’ My husband was a dentist and managed his own practice while I raised the children.   The kids were 15 and 10 at the time. Little did I know that within […]
