Publisher's Summary

Almost any parent you asked would tell you that they want their children to be happy, successful adults. But many of us forget (or never knew to begin with) that lasting personal joy is not necessarily found the way the world says it is - through reaching a certain socioeconomic status, having a certain job, buying a certain house, or having a certain amount in one's bank account. In fact, says Kristen Welch, popular blogger and author of Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World, personal satisfaction comes not from grabbing onto things but from holding them with an open hand and, very often, giving them away.

In this inspiring book, Welch shows parents how to discover for themselves and instill in their kids the profound joy that comes from sharing what we have been given - our time, our talents, and even what's in our wallets - with those who have less. Through powerful personal stories as well as stories from Scripture, Welch offers a tantalizing alternative to status quo parenting that has the power to impact not only our own families but the entire world. At the end of each chapter, one of the author's kids offers their perspective on what it's like to be raised as a world changer.

wasn't expecting the Jesus

By all means, religion is like what kind of ice cream flavor you prefer. I got this book with an open mind but there was too much Jesus for me to hear a clear message. I'm sure it's helpful to some but it just wasn't my cup of tea.

generosity

I will never forget the question, what can I do today to help someone. I want to go with my church on their next mission trip.

Great Book

loved this book! The reader was engaging and pleasant to listen to. And the content was amazing! A great reminder of our calling as parents to show our children how to be World Changers by DOING.

A must read!

I got this book thinking it would change how to parent my children but walked away knowing it changed ME.

I am still processing my action steps, but I know our life, how we view others and our lifestyle will never be the same.
