Live to Give by Austin Gutwein

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 to Give" 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 to feed 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 Guerin shares how to take what may seem like the simplest of talents, gifts, and interests and use them for something Jesus can use to move mountains.

My Thoughts

Live to Give is a book that will inspire you to find what gifts and talents God has given each one of us. Once we know what our talents are we can use them to serve others.

Austin Gutwein uses the story of the boy with 5 loaves of bread and two fishes. (from the book of Matthew) He challenges us to use those talents we have to look beyond ourselves and serve others.

This book will inspire you to take the focus off our wants and redirect our focus to reaching out and helping others.

You will be inspired by reading Live to Give!
