This is a book you need to read this year.
A friend suggested I read it. She didn't really give an explanation of the book. Just said "you need to read it".
So on her recommendation I went to the Library. It was checked out. I reserved it. I finally got the notice it was my turn to read the book.
What I didn't realize it was my turn to share in the personal life of an actual Texas family and a homeless man. This book is written very honest and straight forward. There are two authors and each writes a chapter to tell the same true story from their perspective.
This is definitely a book that I had to read with a box of tissues. But I promise if you read it you will not regret it. It has opened my eyes to see things more compassionately. It has changed my views on some issues. It is a challenging book.
The book title is:
Same kind of different as Me by Ron Hall & Denver Moore
Publisher Thomas Nelson
If you read it, come back and let me know your thoughts.
