Product Description

We can let the world change us or we can change the world. In Raising World Changers in a Changing World, Kristen Welch shares with her readers the joy that sacrificial giving brings. Our abundance is not for us to keep, but to give away. Using both personal experiences and stories of biblical and contemporary heroes, Welch offers a compelling alternative to status-quo parenting. At the end of every chapter are helpful conversation starters in the form of questions that her kids take turn answering.

Publisher's Description

Almost any parent you asked would tell you that they want their children to be happy, successful adults. But many of us forget (or never knew to begin with) that lasting personal joy is not necessarily found the way the world says it is--through reaching a certain socioeconomic status, having a certain job, buying a certain house, or having a certain amount in one's bank account. In fact, says Kristen Welch, popular blogger and author of Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World, personal satisfaction comes not from grabbing onto things but from holding them with an open hand and, very often, giving them away.

In this inspiring book, Welch shows parents how to discover for themselves and instill in their kids the profound joy that comes from sharing what we have been given--our time, our talents, and even what's in our wallets--with those who have less. Through powerful personal stories as well as stories from Scripture, Welch offers a tantalizing alternative to status quo parenting that has the power to impact not only our own families but the entire world. At the end of each chapter, one of the author's kids offers their perspective on what it's like to be raised as a world changer.
