“It is so important for generosity to start when the kids are at home.”

“It starts with opening up opportunities, showing your kids where they can give and how they can step into everyday giving experiences.”

“I think all those excuses go out the window because God calls us to step into someone else’s need without asking for anything in return.”

“It’s all about rethinking the whole definition of giving.”

“Giving is not about us. It is not about our own good.”

“Remember that we can step into this daily, weekly, monthly.”

“If we block someone’s generosity, we could be blocking them from ever giving again.”
