“I hope you enjoy reading The Gift is in the Giving as much as I enjoyed living it.”
The book that you are about to read chronicles five journeys that travel from tragedy to triumph, illustrating the power of the human spirit. We have all read Dicken’s Christmas Carol and O. Henry’s Gift of the Magi as works of fiction, but this book shows actual stories, true to life stories of people in dire situations, who were relieved by small acts of kindness. Each story documents a person or family in need of emotional help, material help and sometimes both. The Gift is in the Giving shows how by offering a minimum of compassion to others, the happiness you bring returns to you tenfold.
About the Author
Bill is a husband, father, and firefighter; three roles he is proud to fill. As a child, his father (also a firefighter) instilled in him the belief that those who have been given much in life owe a debt to those for whom fortune has been less kind.
It is through these lessons that he learned that helping others brings more happiness and satisfaction than acquiring material goods for ourselves.
