Review of latest book read and Giveaway

I've been enjoying my new book I ordered from Amazon. I have read the pre-published book written by my sweet sister in Jesus, Deidra Riggs, on my Kindle. But it's so different than having the real feel of the paperback and opening up of the book...the spine crackling and pages beneath my fingers. 

 After lunch on Sunday, I pulled out the book, "Every Little Thing", from my pile by my desk and grabbed my reading glasses. I decided to read a chapter. This book has drawn me in to re-discover what really living fully for God means in my life. I've been a Christian for the majority of my life. But the longer I journey, the more I learn and grow in my walk with God. I've always known that being courteous to other people makes life easier. Getting out of my comfort zone at times to help or by just saying "hello" to someone when they look sad or tired can make a difference in their day. I don't know what they are going through in this point of their life. I've often prayed for people, whose name I don't even know, asking God to help them through their day, come what may. These past couple years I've prayed for the construction workers on the bridge as I pass by on my way to/from work.  We'll never know this side of heaven what happened to keep them safe, out of danger, felt God's touch, were fed, given work.

It's not about me and what I do and become prideful.
It's about "God delights in us and he has asked us to be his hands and feet here in the world. He doesn't need us, but he has chosen us to work out his will through us.....God is extending a hand in your direction, hoping you will join him. When you say yes, God works in you and through you to bring about significant and lasting change for good and for the kingdom. God wants to do a new thing in our world and in our time. Chances are good that you are the perfect person for the job. .......we want to be convinced we're hearing right and that God is truly on our side and leading the charge. "

Certainly sounds like a great read. I would love to be considered for your giveaway if you are including everyone from the other side of the pond. I would understand if it is USA only as the postage is so expensive. Have a great week.

That sounds like a wonderful book. I am woefully inadequate in the area you described. I have the best of intentions and then fall flat in the carrying of them out in real life. I would love to be included in your giveaway.
