I contributed “When There’s Nothing to Give” on page 65, about a financial catastrophe my husband and I experienced. Excerpt below (shared with permission).

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1677047547136{padding-right: 25px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;}”]

“In August, 2015, life was full of possibilities. By March, 2017, life was an empty, gray void.

…Ten months passed. Near Christmas, our pastor encouraged the congregation to give sacrificially in the new year. 

David and I sat there penniless, without so much as five dollars crammed in the back of our sock drawer.

Then Pastor added, ‘If you’re in a time of financial need yourself, give sacrificially of your gifts instead.’ Light bulb moment! I would donate my marketing skills as a praise offering.

…I never guessed that serving others sacrificially in Jesus’ name would establish my business, yet it’s thriving–and I’m still giving away loads of training.”
