What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher
“Keri's journey of compassion is truly reflective of a woman who wants to impact her community and her world. Throughout these devotionals, Keri tells the story of many courageous people who have made bold choices to live a lifestyle of compassion and justice. I think these stories will stir others to do the same.” -- Heather Larson

“In an age that wrongly separates devotion to God (Mary) from serving others (Martha), here are thought-provoking, weekly digestible morsels to cultivate the compassion of Jesus in your heart and move it into your hands.” -- Jan Johnson

“True devotionals are not just books filled with fluffy stories and neat anecdotes, but books that should stir us to devote our lives to something bigger than ourselves. Here is a devotional that will not just warm your heart, but will actually break your heart with the things that break God’s. Simple Compassion is a weekly reminder that things are not right in the world, that this matters to God, and, perhaps strangest of all, that God doesn’t want to change the world without us.” -- Shane Claiborne
