Do you like to give or is something always holding you back? I like Giving, by Brad Formsma is all about the way to give without regrets.
This book contains advice on what and how to give. It also contains many stories from others about why they give and how it makes them feel. Formsma has even included stories from his children and how it made them feel to give generously. It even includes scientific research which shows that giving is a very healthy thing to do.
Giving does not mean just giving away more things. It can be giving time, listening, or just your presence.

My thoughts- I thought I Like Giving, by Brad Formsma was interesting. I liked all of the stories, but there wasn’t enough advice for me.
I always have the fear that if I give monetarily then I won’t be able to provide for my own family and Formsma did not include anything that would alleviate those fears. I did like how easy the book was to read, but it needed to include summaries of each chapter and questions that would help me to gather my thoughts. Those two things may have helped me glean more information from this book.
This book would be good for all ages, especially since it includes stories of Formsma’s children living a generous life. I plan on reading and discussing the book with my ten-year-old and eight-year-old. I want to see a bigger spirit of generosity in them. This book might be able to do that.
I think that families can gain a lot from reading this book together. Please read it and share what you think.
