As I was growing up, my parents were constantly trying to show us how to live as a believer in Jesus. My parents owned a business, which created moments for my dad to teach us about generosity. One example was when he would do his end of the year giving. Dad would give each of us a curtain amount of money. He asked us to do research on a missionary, report back on our findings, and then he would write them a check. This memory changed my life, and let me in on how generous my parents were. This is the process I want to share with you, but first we have to start with the reasons why?
