From Publishers Weekly
Macomber, one of today's leading fiction writers with more than 100 million books in print, walks a new path with this nonfiction title. I've just got to share the news, she says of her book on generosity. Intentional acts of generosity can open our lives to the very best God has to offer. Macomber builds her book on the biblical story of Jesus' multiplication of five loaves and two fishes, a miracle recorded in all four gospels, using her storytelling prowess to retell the tale. She then takes readers on a journey through the true meaning of generosity (and it's not about cash): encouragement, good deeds, forgiveness and believing the best. She also delves into giving, listening and hospitality, and dips into what generosity means when it comes to Christmas, caregiving and prayer. The theme, Macomber says, is, simply, to offer what you have. She fills out her chapters with real-life stories, suggestions for Simple Acts and brief Discovery sections. This is a useful, inspiring study of an underpracticed art, written by one who has received, given and witnessed generosity. (Nov.)

"For many years Debbie's novels have welcomed us home. Now she invites us to come closer to the hearth of our own home and consider what our lives look like when warmed by the graciousness of a giving spirit. Thank you, Debbie, for inviting us draw near as you candidly share your heart with all your faithful readers." -- Robin Jones Gunn, best-selling author of the Sisterchicks® novels
"The lavishness of Debbie's giving-heart is proofread in her fiction....whether she's teaching us through story how to knit, connect meaningfully with others, or heal from a disease, she's does so with grace and ease. Now in her inimitable way Debbie offers us gentle and powerful reminders of true-life generosity and never drops a stitch." -- Patsy Clairmont, Author Catching Fireflies
"You are going to love Debbie Macomber. She's the bubbly friend you've always hoped to meet and the savvy mentor you've longed to know.

Blessing her loved ones. Blessing her neighbors. Blessing strangers in need. And, in turn, blessing her readers." -- Liz Curtis Higgs, best-selling author of Bad Girls of the Bible

My brother and I have recently lost our mother. I live in New York and he lives in Florida. He was close to her and I was not. I wanted to say something comforting but everything seemed awkward. During the past few months, he placed his faith in God. One of the passages from this book seems the perfect thing to send him. I also have decided to write an actual letter as opposed to an email. Thank you for sharing your wisdom in such a creative way!
Paid standard shipping and it was delivered in two days. Great service!
I was not that interested in hearing about what a wonderful person the author was all the time and thought that could either be redirected or left out
The readings from the book made me be more alert to people around me , I found myself looking for people who needed help.
