When More Is Not Enough Amy L. Sullivan 2014-09-20 When more is not enough, what is? Amy L. Sullivan believes no one loves harder and more completely than children. She also believes selfies, cell phones, must-have tech gadgets, and the sparkly allure of possessions lull kids into an insatiable desire for more. "When More is Not Enough " celebrates the idea of more: more prayers cried out, more time spent together, more use of our talents, more interest in strangers, more forgiveness of hurt, more of what Jesus taught us each day of His life. This book focuses on helping children grow generous hearts, tender spirits, and a deep compassion for others. Filled with biblical reasoning, real-life anecdotes, practical resources, and start-this-very-second activities, "When More is Not Enough " is for families who are ready to move from seeing generosity as a series of tasks and instead, turn it into a way life.
