The secret to mapping out a meaningful existence is to turn the tables on late-in-life introspection and ask those questions early on, so that every decision going forward leads down a path toward fulfillment, explains Hobby Lobby founder and CEO David Green in his latest book, A Generous Life: 10 Steps to Living a Life Money Can’t Buy.
Green, along with co-author Bill High who founded The Signatry, pull readers into revolutionary thinking that encourages them to “make the end the beginning” and realize that by doing so, they’ll have actionable goals toward enduring legacies.
In A Generous Life, Green and High share big picture perspectives that shaped their approach to life, along the way offering practical tips for a life of true riches, touching on marriage, parenting, family communication and learning that you can never out-give God.
Underscored throughout is that generosity comes in many forms — it is a mindset and a lifestyle, rooted in faith, which brings great joy and purpose. Between the covers of A Generous Life, Green guides readers through 10 simple but life-changing steps, including Recognize Everything is God’s, Put People Before Profit, Create a Family Legacy Plan and more.
A truly generous life can profoundly shape generations. This book gives readers the tools so they can start right where they are. Most people are richer than they realize — and when they give it back to God, true wealth will never end.
