what I learned from The Giving Tree
Shel Silverstein showed me how we will take not matter the consequence and someone or something will always give no matter the result.
The Power of Giving
The Power of Giving
What better antidote to toxic news about Wall Street greed and corruption than to read one story after another of people helping one another. This book is not about the how of giving, but about the why of it all. It wonderfully delivers on the promise of its (two!) subtitles: "How giving back enriches us all - Creating abundance in your home, at work, and in your community." Creating ...

Honor Yourself: The Inner Art of Giving and Receiving
SCB Distributors, 2009
Understanding the Power of Paradox Today
Patricia's insights throughout her book are practical and understandable. Patricia's guidance has helped me to understand the power of paradox in my life and the importance of living what she calls the "Magic" and to see more clearly the adverse effects of exclusively believing the "Myth". Here's a great example of one that I've been working on successfully to balance. "Myth: If I try hard ...

Free of Charge
Volf does an incredible service for the church in writing this. He is neither preachy nor condescending, but is thoughtful, articulate and weaves together a beautiful theology of forgiveness.

Women, Wealth and Giving: The Virtuous Legacy of the Boom Generation
Margaret May Damen
Niki Nicastro McCuistion
Men Must Read This Book Too
To begin with, this is an intelligent book - no small praise in the growing pantheon of efforts to explain philanthropy. While the idea of giving money to worthy causes will probably always be linked to words like "goodness" and "altruism," it often doesn't survive a critical analysis, particularly among those not intimately linked to nonprofits, because the feelings, mushy on their own, are ...
The Miracle of the Myrrh
Great Family Book
As a small town librarian, I recommend this book for family reading over the holidays. Its message is as simple as it is profound: like breathing out and breathing in, you have to give in order to get. Also, wonderful illustrations. This story is a natural for a composer of melodic talent. Who hasn't enjoyed Amahl and the Night Visitors? Read it and see if you agree.
