Plastic Donuts

Plastic Donuts shares stories of people applying faith by giving generously.  It is full of relevant testimony that helps broaden one's perception of tithing.  My Sunday School class read parts of this book and discussed. The Plastic Donuts website has fantastic video testimony and other great complimentary resources. We handed out the brochure from the website that helps assess spending and setting goals for better giving.  Our faith walks vary, so do "our best" gifts to honor God. This book puts you in the shoes of a father receiving a precious gift from his child.  Oh how loved receiving this gift makes him feel and how his heart swells with delight over this gift.  How do your gifts make your heavenly father feel?  This quick easy read deepened my understanding of giving and prompts me to dig deeper in how I give.

Amazingly Powerful Life and Perspective

Life Without Limits by Nick Vujicic
Nick's life oozes the hand of God. Clearly Nick's strength, courage and wisdom come from God. How can I complain? No reason for anyone not to be more passionate about their own place in God's story.  Nick's triumph over his disability as well as his triumph over some of the same things that all of us face- is tremendously inspiring. Overcoming suicidal thoughts to become one of the most encouraging people on the planet. This book will have you seeing the blessings in your own life with greater clarity and the obstacles will start looking smaller. Beautiful testimony from a beautiful person.
