On 9/7 Elizabeth Ingersoll wrote: This short gift book packs a lot of message into just over 100 pages. Essentially, it tells you how just one event, no matter how tiny or mundane it seems, can have far reaching implications that you may never even see.

On 9/7 Elizabeth Ingersoll wrote: This book tells the story of a young boy, Norman, and what he did that changed the world. That then leads into the next story of a second person and makes you wonder if, in fact, that person really changed the world.

It's because God is, and He uses Max to let us all know it. The first chapter made me cry. The second chapter made me cry. And I just thought ... Don't be afraid - just read "Fearless!"
On 9/7 Elizabeth Ingersoll wrote: I finished "Same Kind of Different as Me" around Christmas (I think), but just never got around to reviewing it. I should have. This is an awesome book! Told through the voices of two very different characters, Ron and Denver, you can really see the big picture. Below is the book description provided ... Absolutely read this book!
On 5/25 Elizabeth Ingersoll wrote: There are two kinds of good books: some that are so good you just can't put down, and some that you read slowly and soak in every word. Put Your Dream to the Test is the latter. In fact, I'm reading it so slowly that I haven't even finished it. If I waited until I did, this review may not be written ...

I was interested in this book because Billy's family lives in my area, and I drive past his training center, The Cove, every day.
