Publisher's Description

David Green believes that generosity and building a legacy based on giving can lead to getting back what you really want: a family that stays together, prays together, and shares life joyfully.

Green tells the story of caring for the small things and starting Hobby Lobby in their garage. He shares the difference between the worlds of "having and hoarding" and a world of "giving and generosity," the principle of working for God and not for men, and that now is not too soon to consider what you want your legacy to be.

As proof of how living by those principles can change your life, Green shares that when Hobby Lobby came close to bankruptcy in 1986 and when the Supreme Court challenged the Hobby Lobby’s right to life beliefs in 2014, the company emerged with its integrity intact. 

Green sees the life of giving as a life of adventure. But it’s a life that pays the best rewards personally, offers a powerful legacy to your family, and changes those you touch.

Author Bio

David Green is soft-spoken, passionate about his faith, and dedicated to his family. He is also the founder of the largest privately owned arts and crafts retailer in the world.

 In 1970 David Green borrowed $600.00 to buy a molding chopper, set up shop in his garage at home, and started making miniature wooden picture frames. As of 2015, Hobby Lobby employs over 32,000 people, operates 600 stores in forty-seven states, and grosses 3.6 billion dollars a year. Currently David serves on the Board of Reference for Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In 2013, he was honored by receiving the World Changer award, and is also a past Ernst & Young national retail/consumer Entrepreneur of the Year Award recipient.

 In June of 2014 the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in favor of David and Barbara Green, and Hobby Lobby. The historic ruling protected Hobby Lobby and the Green Family from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services mandate that would have required it to provide and facilitate, against their religious convictions, four potentially life-terminating drugs and devices in the company’s health insurance plan.

 David & his wife Barbara are the proud parents of two sons and one daughter, grandparents to ten, and great grandparents to eight. They are actively pursuing what it looks like to leave a lasting legacy.  

 

Bill High practiced law for twelve years before becoming the CEO of the National Christian Foundation Heartland. His mission is to change the way people think about generosity and their practice of it. He is married to Brooke and they have four children, two son-in-laws, and one grandchild.

    What a great title for a book! Drew me in straight away and read it from cover to cover in one sitting! Wow... I am impressed with this man's faith, with the strength of family, but most of all how God has led Him, and taught Him so many things. These things he then passes on to his children, and then some to us, the reader of this book. For me the topic of generosity is a hot topic, along with the theme of stewardship - that everything belongs to God and we are just stewards of it. He gives us life, breath, everything so we can claim nothing is our own as it's all originating from Him.

    David shares stories of experiences God has taken him through, and also situations that God has led them through with Hobby Lobby. I was so excited to read about their absolute dedication to God with Hobby Lobby - to the point of being 100% above reproach in EVERY business dealing they are involved in. It is just so refreshing to hear. No wonder God is blessing that company.

    He divides the book into five parts: 1 - A Radical Way of Living 2 - It's All God's 3 Giving it all away 4 - The legacy of work and family 5 - The eternal legacy that is right now. The book is easy to read and to relate to. I particularly enjoyed hearing the stories from his childhood that shaped the way he is today. I also enjoyed the scenarios to do with Hobby Lobby a lot. It is exciting to see how God can take something small and make it big. I also love how despite his great success, David remains on His knees before God - surrendering it all to Him and knowing that it truly belongs to God and not just in lip-service.

    I didn't previously know much about Hobby Lobby. I knew it was a Christian business that didn't open on Sunday's but after reading this book, I have even more respect for the company for so many reasons. I love that they uphold Godly values and that they really run the business on Biblical principles. I love their attitude of generosity as a business as well as personally. It is revolutionary.

    I believe this book is timely on a topic that God is stirring up in the hearts of His people once more. Our world promotes self and keeping things to yourself, but the kingdom of God is the opposite. Give and it will be given to you. I love his personal challenge to try to 'outgive' God.

    This is a man (and his wife) that I would personally love to meet one day.

    Great book! I definitely recommend this one!

    Please note that I was sent a copy of this book for purposes of review, however the opinions expressed are 100% my own.
