Welcome to Day 7 of our 30 day celebration of the 5th Anniversary of
Giving Thanks: The Art of Tithing, by Paula Langguth Ryan – where we’re answering 30 questions about tithing!

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, which is why I published Giving Thanks in November. Since we’re at the end of the first week of our 30 day celebration, I thought I’d share with you a fun little tithing success story I received just before last Thanksgiving:

Hi Paula! I’m taking “Giving Thanks” with me to NH this weekend and will read it cover to cover… today was spent at the Flower Market in Boston and then home to make lots of bouquets for the VFW to deliver with their meals to shut-ins tomorrow.  I had gotten a check from by biz and used 1/3 of it to buy the flowers and make the arrangements.  My way for making up for not tithing for a while… On my way into town, I stopped at “Sixbucks” for a Chai, and bought the next guy his coffee. I came home and got another check from my company! There may be something to this “tithing” business after all.  Thanks for the reminder! – Lisa V.

Peace and prosperity,

Paula Langguth Ryan
