Get Inspired by Generosity |Please Send in Your Giving Stories

I have an idea that I’d like to try, but I need your help.

I’ve been going through the process of interviewing generous givers for my upcoming book.  As I’ve read the email interviews and chatted with folks on the phone, I’ve wondered – why should I be the only one who gets to have this much fun?

It is amazing and inspiring to share in these acts of generosity and to read about how God can work through generous Christians.

One of the men I was interviewing was really shy to talk about things he’s done in the lives of people.  He mentioned that our giving should be done in secret.  While I do agree, I also think all of us desperately need giving heroes.  We need to hear about the generous things people are doing.  In those stories, God can helps us to become more generous.

Here’s the deal, though – it wouldn’t be cool if all the giving stories were mine.  So, I need your stories to publish at MH4C.  In fact, I would love to run a giving story every Friday (providing I have a story to run).

I’m thinking something like Dave Ramsey’s Debt Free Fridays where people call into say they’re debt free.  Instead, you’ll email and share some of your favorite giving stories.

So, here’s what you can do:

If someone once helped you, you once helped someone, or you witnessed someone giving to another person, then write that story and send it to mhforc [at] gmail.com.  If you’d like, you can change names to protect the innocent :) and you can keep your identity private.
