What is GenerousLife(.net)?

Generous Life celebrates generosity lived in the name of Christ. From the everyday generosity that helps make someone’s bad day livable to the extraordinary generosity that changes lives forever, here at Generous Life we celebrate it all. Generous Life seeks to enable everyone, from philanthropists to everyday people, to live generously, the way God desires.

We want the Generous Life Blog to be your regular encouragement in living your generous life. Here, we will post stories of everyday generosity—the kinds you can use to inspire and inform your own generosity. Let us help you live your generous life today! If you have a minute to spare, take a look around the site. We have magazines for you to peruse, videos and podcasts to view and download, and information on the Generous Life Conference.
