How do I become generous?


Practice. Like anything else, you get better the more you practice. The Just One Dollar More project was conceived of to challenge me to become more generous.

The connection between God’s grace and our giving


We have all heard the saying “But for the grace of God, go I.” As I read “The Treasure Principal” I got to thinking it really should be “Because of the Grace of God, I give.” In 2 Corinthians Paul uses the  same Greek word for God’s grace as he does for Christian giving. One… Read More

Week 6 ($6 more)


This week I had my $5 from last week and my $6. I decided to roll it all to my week 7 donation and give $18 more to the Stuff The Bus drive. Each year our Keller Williams office does a fund raiser for school supplies which get put into new backpacks and given to… Read More

Week 4 ($4 more)


Well I made it just under the wire. Thursday evening I gave my $4 as an extra tip to my waitress at Chili’s. She seemed a bit off so we asked her what was up. She had just returned from Alaska, from her grandfathers funeral. She had gotten up there the day before he died in… Read More
