Publisher's Summary

What if you, personally, could make the world a better tomorrow?Debbie Macomber knows the secret to doing exactly that! In a world that seems too often stingy and grudging, she has witnessed how one simple act of generosity can yield unforeseen miracles.You are about to discover, through true stories, what happens when we commit intentional acts of generosity. Lives are changed in ways we never envisioned. Come with Debbie late one evening through the checkout line at the grocery store. Visit a midwestern train station. Discover the link between a submarine, a few bread crumbs, and some minnows. Visit ancient Galilee as a young boy volunteers his fishes and loaves to Jesus, only to see his meager gift multiplied many times over to feed five thousand. Listen in on a touching phone call with an elderly widow. You will stand amazed at what God accomplishes when we make ourselves available through simple acts of generosity.This blend of true stories and motivating messages will delight and surprise you as you discover how giving the gifts of time, encouragement, hope, laughter, prayer, hospitality, service, and even forgiveness can have lasting, life-changing impact, not only on the recipient of such gifts but on the giver as well.Debbie Macomber, through the power of story, invites us to live with open hands, offering who we are and what we have to God, to use in the lives of others. When we do so, lives--including our own--are changed in ways we couldn't have imagined. All it takes is one simple act.

Would you consider the audio edition of One Simple Act to be better than the print version?

This is a book I will play over and over.

What did you like best about this story?

I am a huge Debbie Macomber fan (think I have read all her books) and must not have read the description of this one, I thought it was just another one of her fiction books. Was I suprised it is a non-fiction book on a subject that we all should pay attention to...paying it forward.

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend this book for all to read/listen to. The best part of audiobooks is playing it over and over.
