Want to do something for God but don’t know what? Want to help others but don’t know who? Want to know what it is you’re really good at doing? Your gifts may feel small and insignificant. But God can use them to work a miracle! Inspired by the biblical story of the feeding of the 5,000, “Live to Give” delivers a message of hope that we all have something to give. Written in the down-to-earth, candid voice of the gifted young man who as a kid founded a relief ministry that has saved and improved countless lives in Africa, “Live toGive” is the message that every teen needs to hear: You are more special than you know, and you can do big things. Jesus proved that no gift is too small when He used five loaves and two fish tofeed a crowd of thousands. And if no gift is too small, too ordinary, or too random, there is no limit to what the youth of today can accomplish! A teenage philanthropist who has built a high school, two medical clinics, and a dormitory in Africa—all before the age of 16—Austin Gutwein shares how totake what may seem like the simplest of talents, gifts, and interests and use them for something Jesus can use to move mountains.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Live to Give. The author, Austin Gutwein, is only 18 but has already made an incredible difference in our world. Live to Give is written to young people, but really, anyone regardless of age will be inspired by this book. Live to Give is now going to be required reading for my teenagers.
