Overview

A thrift store in inner-city Kalamazoo, Michigan.
Exactly the place where you'd expect to meet Jesus, right?

Jane Knuth's middle-class, suburban, church-going background had not prepared her well to serve as a volunteer at an inner-city thrift store. Reluctantly, she decided to give it a try.
Thrift Store Saints is a collection of true stories based on Jane's unexpected, soul-stirring experiences at the St. Vincent de Paul thrift store in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Rather than viewing society's poor as problems to be solved, Jane begins to see them, one at a time, in a completely different light-as saints who can lead us straight to the heart of Christ.
Jane's transformation is rooted in the prevailing message of the book: When we serve the poor, they end up giving us much more than we could ever give them. Each chapter introduces readers to new "saints," as Jane thoughtfully, at times humorously, describes how her frequent encounters with the poorest people were really opportunities to meet Jesus-25o at a time.

Excellent insight into how volunteerism changes our lives ... there is much to be learned from those we serve.

This is a great read! Very meaningful and inspiring but with light hearted humor. Makes you think about life issues but not take yourself too serious. I love this book!

This book was wonderful. Once I started to read it, I couldn't put it down. It is a very easy read. The author Jane Knuth wrote about how God had a plan for her and how she recieved so much from it. That is all I am going to say. If you enjoy learning about how God has touched people in different ways this will open your eyes to a world that not to many of us understand. Enjoy!!!
