Q: How did you become an advocate for generous living?
A: I became an advocate over a long period of time. I have found that creating a lifestyle of generosity is not an overnight experience. It started with my grandfather’s example in my early teen years, which was mainly my watching him as opposed to him preaching to me. There is real power and freedom in sharing giving stories with others without asking for something from them. This happened the more I discovered the power of giving stories. Think of giving this way: We get to. We don't got to.
Q: What is your favorite example of giving?
A: Now that’s a hard one! I have so many favorites. If we are talking family giving, I would say the “I Like Bike” story. The “I Like Bike” experience took our family to a whole new level! If we are talking about someone giving away all they have, “I Like Car” is at the top of my list. Overall, stories of kids being generous are super inspiring to me. They don't over think it, and it’s so pure. Best of all, I think it changes them for life—a life that is truly life.
