Beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber shares inspirational and empowering true stories of what happens when we commit intentional acts of generosity.

Master storyteller Debbie Macomber knows a secret.

In a world that seems too often reticent and begrudging, Debbie has learned firsthand that living in a spirit of generosity yields unforeseen miracles. Lives can be changed in ways we never envisioned. Just as a young boy volunteered his fishes and loaves to Jesus in Galilee and saw his meager gift multiplied many times over to feed five thousand, we can live open-handed and stand amazed at what God accomplishes through simple acts of generosity.

This moving blend of true stories and motivating messages delights and surprises us as we see for ourselves that giving the gifts of time, encouragement, hope, laughter, prayer, hospitality, service, and forgiveness often have a life-changing impact, not only on the recipient of such gifts, but on the giver as well. All it takes is one simple act.

Macomber, through her masterful power of storytelling, calls us to live with an open heart, offering who we are and what we have to God, to use in the lives of others. When we do so with an eager sense of expectancy, lives—including our own—are changed in ways we couldn’t have imagined.
