    Inspiring Read

    This book demonstrates how we should be compelled to act with love in even the most ordinary circumstances of our life, and how - when we take the simple step of ensuring we act with love, we can grow closer to God in all aspects of our life. I have always wanted to do missionary work, but have not acted on this desire. This book brought home that there is so much we can do to be missionaries of God in our own home and in our own community. I felt renewed and found so many areas in my own life where I have the opportunity to be "compelled by love" in my own small world. I highly recommend this book - especially in a world that is struggling with the loss of material wealth in a faultering economy - we can be reminded how spiritually rich we all are!
