I picked up this book several years ago after Josh spoke at my college, and it has been one of the best books that I have ever bought. It hit at the spots in my soul that had felt broken and reminded me of the people I have met in my life that walked along side of me as I healed. It challenged me to be a person that lives authentically and that seeks to bring healing to those that are hurting. It reminded me of what I can do to help those around me. Truly a life-changing book.
I recently went to a seminar of his. It really changed my life and inspired me. I would recommend anything of Josh Riebock's. He really went through so much- his parents died within a month of each other.
