You must read this book. I mean you have to.
I'm so excited to share it for our (virtual) book club selection for May!
It's about a woman from California who owns a talent agency in LA (one of her closest friends is Candace Cameron's mother. How fun is that?!).
While hosting a party in her own home, a woman whom she did not know commented on the photos of her sponsored children taped to her fridge. This woman was convinced that all those types of nonprofits are a farce, a front for companies just taking our money. She continued on to persuade Shelene (the author) that her money was lining the pockets of many rich CEOs.
Those words and the concept of such a horrible joke haunted Shelene for weeks until she told her husband that she wanted to travel to Uganda to meet these children. To make sure they were real and actually in need.
And the trip changed her life.
This is how Amazon describes it...
In this whimsical yet inspiring book, Shelene tells the stories of real-life paths God took her on to learn some simple truths that changed everything in her life—everything for the better.
By loving how our Creator made us to love; skipping comfort and safety to help those who can never repay us; and taking a risk to jump into the epic journey God has for our lives, the reality is we are all just one yes away from changing everything.
Don’t miss out on the incredible adventure God has for you. Say yes to God—love, skip, and jump your way to his plans for you!
(Here are some more reviews)
I've not finished the book yet myself, but I am absolutely pouring over it. It's the kind of book that makes you want to get up and DO SOMETHING! ANYTHING, GOD!
Ok Father...seriously. Use me.
What do you want me to say yes to??
So whether you read the entire book, half of it....or even just a chapter or two, please swing by!
I CANNOT WAIT to hear what you think of the book and how God may be using it to help you to start loving the adventure of yes!!
