About Plastic Donuts

Once you see your gifts from God’s perspective, your giving will never be the same.
When she was a toddler, Jeff Anderson’s daughter opened his eyes to how delighted God is with our gifts. She brought him a plastic donut from her play kitchen, and he was surprised by the intensity of his reaction. His delight in receiving this simple gift—and his daughter’s joy in giving it—led him to dig deeper. Anderson would not rest until he found the scriptural connection between our gifts and God’s heart. 

Plastic Donuts removes the awkwardness and uncertainty that often accompany discussions about giving. Now you can think differently-and biblically-about what and how you give.  

Your gifts can capture God’s attention and connect you more intimately with His heart. Plastic Donuts brings everyone—leaders and followers, teachers and learners—onto the same page.

What I first noticed about the book Plastic Donuts was the adorable size, it's maybe 4 x 6 like a photo with a nice hardcover binding. I really appreciated that this lil' book packed a lot of punch in thoughts and scriptures on giving, but did not come across intimidating in nature. Jeff Anderson writes in a very easy way to follow about giving being an overflow of our hearts, and less like the preconceived notions we have in our heads about...

Plastic Donuts is the first book I've ever read that was able to bring the topic of tithing and giving to life.

Anderson pulls the reader away from the concrete concept of the "10% tithe" and guides them towards the invaluable...

Jeff's beginning story of his toddler daughter bringing her dad a plastic donut and being so excited when he accepts it and pretends to eat it was...
