More Living
was created with these truths in mind:
• Boomers can change the world by giving more and being more for God’s glory.
• The “me” generation can become the “we” generation.
• It’s time to reawaken passions and embrace possibilities.
• The best choice is always Do What Matters.

And just because we like you, here’s a recipe taken from the preview edition.
Spiced Fig Jam
Makes one 8-ounce jar
1 cup water
3 tablespoons sugar
10 to 12 figs, destemmed & roughly chopped
Zest of 1 orange (or lemon)
1 cinnamon stick
3 cloves
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
juice of 1/2 orange (or lemon)
Stir water, sugar, and figs in a heavy saucepan over medium heat until dissolved. Add orange zest, cinnamon stick, cloves, nutmeg, and salt. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes or until most of the liquid evaporates, figs are tender, and jam thickens. Take off heat and remove cinnamon stick and cloves. Stir in orange juice. Allow to cool, then place in an 8-ounce jar. Keep refrigerated for up to one month.
• When using dried figs, soak in water for 15 to 20 minutes before chopping.
• If you prefer smooth jam, pulse in a food processor. If jam is too thick, add water a little at a time until desired consistency is reached.

    I have a little bit of a problem with the idea, if this IS the idea, that the Boomer generation is a “me” generation. I don’t see that at all. Boomers have given a lot and in many cases in this day and age, are forgotten in the move to the future idea of what is “we”. Just a thought from a Boomer.

    JoAnn, thank you so much for your comment! Allow me to clarify. There is no doubt that the Boomer generation contributes in so many ways. I didn’t mean to imply that Boomers are selfish; much to the contrary, this generation is already giving their time, love, and resources, which is why LifeWay saw a need for More Living magazine. I think the idea is more about coming together as a unified group. In every issue, this 78-million-strong, youthful generation will find applicable, authentic information and wisdom to help them help them make the most out of this wonderful season of life by living the message of John 3:30 – “He must increase but I must decrease.” Hope that helps!
