David Green believes that generosity and building a legacy based on giving can lead to getting back what you really want: a family that stays together, prays together, and shares life joyfully. Green tells the story of caring for the small things and starting Hobby Lobby in their garage. He shares the difference between the worlds of “having and hoarding” and a world of “giving and generosity,” the principle of working for God and not for men, and that now is not too soon to consider what you want your legacy to be. As proof of how living by those principles can change your life, Green shares that when Hobby Lobby came close to bankruptcy in 1986 and when the Supreme Court challenged the Hobby Lobby’s right to life beliefs in 2014, the company emerged with its integrity intact. Green sees the life of giving as a life of adventure. But it’s a life that pays the best rewards personally, offers a powerful legacy to your family, and changes those you touch.

The retail industry has undergone enormous changes during the last thirty years. But there is one retailer that not only has remained consistent in the fluctuating?even tenuous?market, but also has grown in the process. More Than a Hobby takes you inside the story of David Green, the man who built the phenomenal success of Hobby Lobby. Green went beyond surviving in a competitive retail market to thriving, ultimately expanding his $600 start-up company into a $1.3 billion per-year enterprise. Green’s incredible accomplishments were based not on business-school theory but on his grassroots experiences as a store manager and his creative application of cutting edge ideas, including: Allow managers to spend no more than thirty minutes per day on paperwork Instead of paying a middleman, assemble as much of the product as possible in-house Give buyers the freedom to purchase without restraint—but within the realm of common sense Keep God and family first More Than a Hobby is a practical field manual, filled with revolutionary ideas for all those who dream of success in the world of retail business.

The exact circumstances of Larsen's (1891-1964) birth are uncertain; but it is known that she was a child of mixed race who was raised for a few years in Chicago as if she were white but then, while an adolescent, was sent off to the Fisk University Normal High School with the understanding that she would prepare to assume a position among the black middle class. She wrote two successful novels--Quicksand (1928) and Passing (1929)--and gained literary prominence in New York; but after 1930 she dropped from the limelight and lived the rest of her life out of the public eye. Davis has undertaken to profile Larsen's enigmatic life and personality. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
