A Generous Life: Our Podcast Interview with Kim King

Kim King is on an adventure. Like most, there have been fun and exciting moments as well as scary and unpredictable ones. In When Women Give: The Adventure of a Generous Life, Kim assumes that Christian women are committed to blessing others with the blessings they’ve received from God — including their finances. Her book helps us learn how to be generous. It’s full of stories of generous women and their giving experiences as well as suggestions on discerning where and how to give. She offers a number of helpful resources, including some worksheets to get started. She tells her own story of how God has enriched her life as she’s walked with him in this journey. And she invites us to join her.

We think you will find this book helpful as you consider your own giving, both now and in the future.

You can listen to our interview with Kim here or at Apple Podcasts — the first episode of our podcast, WAPpy Hour.
