The Ultimate Gift


Based on the novel by Jim Stovall, The Ultimate Gift tells the story of trust fund baby Jason Stevens. When his wealthy grandfather dies, Jason anticipates a big inheritance. Instead, his grandfather has devised a crash course on life: twelve gifts designed to challenge Jason in improbable ways, sending him on a journey of self-discovery and forcing him to determine what is most important in life: money or happiness.

Jason thought his inheritance was the gift of money and lots of it . . . but Jason thought wrong. He had a very simple relationship with his impossibly wealthy Grandfather, Howard “Red” Stevens. He hated him. No heart-to-heart talks, no warm fuzzies, just cold hard cash. So of course he figured that when Red died, the whole “reading of the will” thing would be another simple cash transaction. He figured that his Grandfather’s money would allow him to continue living in the lifestyle to which he had become accustomed. But what Red left him was anything but . . . simple. Red instead devised a plan for Jason to experience a crash course on life. Twelve tasks, which Red calls “gifts”, each challenging Jason in improbable ways, the accumulation of which would change him forever.
