If you want to make this a special Christmas, today we're going to talk about how The Giving Manger helps families shift the focus of Christmas back to giving and create a family tradition at the same time! Co-creator and author of The Giving Manger, Lisa Kalberer joins Mornings with Eric and Brigitte on Tuesday to talk about how your family could plan to work together to give gifts of service, and as you do, you will find your hearts and home filled with more joy during the holiday season than ever before.
Some employees are encouraged to participate in "Giving Tuesday" with their companies. How is it possible to give more if you are on a limited budget? While it can be a good witness to participate in a "giving day", it is important to know where the giving will be directed, because for Christians, not all generosity is equal. Acts of generosity should be committed to those efforts and missions consistent with God's Word. Tuesday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, CEO of Crown Financial Ministries, Chuck Bentley, shares that giving is a matter of the heart. It does not require a lot of money. Simply ask God for opportunities--what's most important is the motive and the size of the sacrifice.
Allison Hottinger and Lisa Kalberer are sisters who are passionate about giving back. Christmas is one of their favorite holidays, filled with fun and festive traditions. As they began to raise their own families, they often felt like the true meaning of Christmas and the spirit of giving was getting lost in the hustle and bustle of the season. They put pen to paper, wood to the saw, and clay in our hands to create a book, manger + baby Jesus –– a complete tradition to help families focus on giving and the real meaning of Christmas.
Chuck Bentley is a graduate of Baylor University and the CEO of Crown Financial Ministries. He has traveled throughout the world teaching biblical financial principles to the affluent, middle class, poor, and ultra poor. He's the author of a number of books including Money Problems, Marriage Solutions: 7 Keys to Aligning Your Finances and Uniting Your Hearts, written with his wife Ann.
