Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0978639480, Paperback)What would you sacrifice to change the world? Your job? Your lifestyle? Your money?
We need a smaller footprint. The pursuit of the American dream has left most of us empty, stretched in nine different directions and self-absorbed. Aside from the occasional natural disaster, we've all but forgotten about the people around the world and down the street who need us and need us to live differently. We need to live more simply.
We want to make a bigger handprint. In a world crying out for help, we struggle to believe we can make a difference. But reformation starts with people who have one idea they believe can change their world and the power of God s love changes everything. We need to love more extravagantly.
The world is changing whether we like it or not. The question that begs to be answered is this: Will you sit by idly and watch it change for the worse or will you allow God to put you on the forefront of changing it for the better? Small Footprint, Big Handprint is your invitation to embark on a journey for the latter.

If we're not careful, our stuff can own us. Before we know it, we have high mortgages, high car payments and a lifestyle that we wished wasn't ours. What about those simpler times when technology didn't dictate our lives or when we weren't enslaved to making payment after payment? Author and pastor Tri Robinson has found that simple living for simplicity's sake isn't the answer. There must be a reason we all desire to render our lives down. As followers of Jesus, that innate desire within us to fall back into a simpler lifestyle is the yearning within us for our lives to count, to matter, to be part of something bigger than ourselves. When we render our lives down for the sake of the Gospel, we suddenly become more available to be used by God than ever before. Discover how you can put this biblical principle to work in your life and change the world around you!
