When More is Not Enough

When More is Not Enough! This is Amy’s big day!

Have you ever dreamed of giving your gifts away. If I ever make enough money, I’d love to… well Amy didn’t wait. ALL proceeds of her book are going to Transformation Village, a housing ministry for women and children founded by Asheville Buncombe Community Christian Ministries. That extravagant generosity is Amy, and you will love her book.


She empowers us all to be givers and to raise givers with her smart, compassionate and funny voice. She gives birth on the side of the road, converses with imaginary critics and struggles through her daughters first years on permanent oxygen. Her journey to generosity is transparent, honest and down-to-earth.

God wanted more. He expected it. God desired to take what we saw as ours and turn it into his.”

Amy encourages us to leave behind the term youth entitlement. She offers practical ideas for our world, our community and in our home. I especially love the dinner table dialogue sections.

She also goes beyond the most often shared service ideas and challenges our hearts to serve through forgiveness, prayer and rest. What a beautiful invitation, that in order to serve we must rest. We must pray. And we must be ready to offer forgiveness. Providing rest, service and prayer for others is also an act of service.


This kind of heart shaping, deeply loving, extravagantly generous service shapes a beautiful life. We know this from the voice and life of Amy.


I’ll be giving away TWO copies of the book!

Just comment below to be entered. What is your biggest giving dream? What is your families best giving ideas?

Lets give Amy lots of proximity love! You can share her book, follow her journey on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and subscribe to her blog by email! We love you Amy and so beyond proud of you and difference your book will make!

  1. What a fabulous giveaway – I am SO excited about this book! My greatest giving dream is more a feeling than a goal, and it’s hard to put into words. But I guess it boils down to this – I want this world to be a little bit better, a little bit kinder, a little more gentle because of my life. If I can encourage people to live with their eyes and hearts and arms open … What greater tribute to my life can I think of? Congratulations, Amy – I can’t wait to read this book!

  2. I would love my kids to be givers and have a servants heart. I find it hard to think of ways to do this and to get beyond making them give to them wanting to give.

  3. So looking forward to reading this book — thank you for hosting this giveaway! One of my favorite giving examples has been from some friends of mine in South Africa, who started the “Egg on Toast Fund.” Instead of going out to eat each weekend as a group of friends, they would go to someone’s house to have eggs on toast instead. The money they saved from not eating at at a restaurant was used to support missionary friends.

    Congratulations, Amy, on your book release!
