More or Less

So, I did something this weekend that I haven’t done in years!

I read a book from cover to cover within 24 hours!

The book is in-cred-i-ble!  I had never seen the book, never heard of it, had no friends or blog sisters recommend it.  The cover caught my attention in Sam’s Club when I went to get laundry detergent and decided to stroll by the books on my way to the checkout (imagine THAT!).

In essence, it is a challenge to living a lifestyle of extreme generosity.

More or Less

See all the places I have marked? They are the ones with the pink and purple tabs.  SO much good stuff in this book! One of the first quotes I have marked is:

“I believe anything we find that is more than enough creates an immediate opportunity to make others’ lives better.”

Amen and Amen!

Maybe it’s just that I found this book at the exact time that my heart was headed in the same direction as the author’s. I have leaps and bounds to go before I live it like he and his wife do, but he was able to put into words and into practice, the urgency and necessity I feel to be out blessing others with our Acts of Kindness Adventures.

If I haven’t told you before, I am in love with our Acts of Kindness Adventures! I think about them most of the time. I turn over ideas in my head, brainstorm how I can get more money to fund them and to be able to do them more often. {This book gave me a few ideas for that too!} When I see things on clearance, or abundance in my cupboards, our adventures and people I don’t even know are the first thing I think of.

I will share more quotes and ideas in the coming days but for now I just had to share my excitement and this wonderful book with you. Have you read it?  If anyone out there already knew of it and read it, I would love to hear what you thought of it.

It is a challenge to be sure, but honestly, it is nothing that Scripture doesn’t also challenge us to be and to do! We have been blessed so that we can be a blessing!

Excited to Move Forward With You!
