Can we really enjoy what we have when some of us are going without?
Or would our blessings be more enjoyable if everyone shared them?
What is more important-what we have, or what we have to give.
Seventeen years ago Lisa Eleze Thomas-McMillan was forced to consider these questions when she witnessed a woman struggling to pay for a small basket of groceries. Lisa was humbled to learn just how rampant a problem hunger is, and she made a vow that “nobody should ever have to worry about having enough to eat.” Drawing strength from her family, friends, and community, she opened a food bank and started delivering meals to the elderly.
Lisa walked from her small town of Brewton, Alabama to the state capital in Montgomery, and then to Washington, D.C., to raise awareness for hunger. Along the way, she met countless compassionate people who supported her cause and inspired her to continue believing that hunger could be conquered by providing food assistance to the needy. Lisa shares her story in an effort to bring about a world where no one goes without the most basic necessity of life; food.
This book will help you become the best steward of the blessing you enjoy. God quietly stirs all hearts to work on His behalf and be the miracles His children need. If we work together, we can create a world without hunger and poverty. We can create a world in which need is met with kindness and despair is met with hope.
