“How do we learn about giving if we don’t talk about it?” Lori Guenther Reesor asks in our latest issue, which includes a special focus on money. 

“Listening to generous people share how they learned to give is a joy I recommend to everyone,” continues Guenther Reesor, who is a speaker, writer and consultant on Christian giving. “Generosity can be contagious.”

In the following video, produced last year by Abundance Canada, Guenther Reesor and her husband, Barry Reesor, talk about their generosity journey:

“We’ll always have enough,” Guenther Reesor says in the video. “You can’t make yourself broke by being generous, you really can’t. You’ll always have enough to share.”
