Love Does ~Discover A Secretly Incredible Life In An Ordinary World~ By Bob Goff
Ha-ha-ha! I wasn’t expecting to find myself laughing out loud. Such adventures! “Love Does” is a pretty amazing book. Filled with interesting, comical, remarkable stories! Bob Goff relates how to live a life that is “out of the box” extraordinary! He seems to know how to wring every drop of life out of a day!
This book is very well written. Interesting from beginning to end…one of those books that you can’t wait to get back to. (I think I’ll read it again!) I can’t imagine living as he has lived–such adventures I have never dreamed of! He has made an impact on his own children and so many others around him. One of the stories that comes to mind is how his children responded to his question, “If you had five minutes in front of a group of world leaders, what would you ask them to help make sense of life, faith, hope and the events that are unfolding around them?” This invitation to his children began an adventure that they will always remember as will the leaders they interacted with…incredible! All I can think of is that is what it’s like to live life to the fullest. It challenged me to rethink my own life…find my God-given passion and live like I mean it.
Yep, read it and see if your heart doesn’t resound with inspiration. Love is an action word–“Love Does.”
I give this book 5/5 stars*****
