Pre-sales GRACE OF GIVING starts today!

This morning I came to the conclusion that 2010 has only two more months left… Two months in which we celebrate two major holidays. One day to give thanks and one day to give gifts. It seems that ‘giving’ is the theme for the remainder of each year we live.

I guess it keeps us balanced, because we are programmed to spend most of our lives accumulating possessions which we think will make us happier and give us a more fulfilled life, whether it is the house, the car, the boat, the job, the money or the mate we desire. How can we shift that all too human attitude of gathering into an attitude of giving? Is it truly possible to become a cheerful giver?

In my fourth book Grace of Giving, turning the key to enter and experience fullness of life, I have tried to answer these questions by taking an in-depth look at the commandment do not steal. I share how we can leave behind the way of the thief, which always cries for more, more, more, and how we can adapt the way of the Master, which is cheerfully, abundantly and costly giving that will lead us into a life in all its fulness!

The official nationwide release date for Grace of Giving will be January 25th 2011, so the book is not yet available at major book sellers. It is, however, available at the publishers’ website! If you want to learn more about the blessings of giving, please go to this link and order your own copy of Grace of Giving:

If you prefer the audio version, and don't mind listening to my foreign accent, or if you rather have it as an e-book download, please go to this link and order there. In the coming weeks I will be giving away several copies of GRACE OF GIVING, so keep an eye on my blog!

    Susan :)

  4. Congratulations on the pre-sale of your book - it sounds like one I'll need to add to my library!

    It's all too easy to fall prey to the trap of accumulating things that never truly satisfy. Embracing the way of the Master is the only answer!

    *Thanks for stopping by Life Lessons! Have a wonderful weekend and God bless! :)

  5. I've been pondering on the gathering and giving and if I combine the two I am left with SHARING! Sounds a great way to move into Christmas!
    God bless and congratulations again,
