I know, I am a few days late with September’s book and I apologize, BUT with Amazon Prime, you can order today and have just in time for the weekend, right?!
Also, thank you to those who reached out to make sure they hadn’t missed this month’s book. I reassured in fact they hadn’t – it was just crazy with the holiday weekend and traveling. With that being said, I am SO excited for this month’s book: Everybody, Always by Bob Goff. If the cover alone doesn’t make your heart happy, just wait until you read all the pages that follow.
After seeing a friend on Instagram post this book in her stories, I knew I had to read it. I had no idea what the book was about, besides the fact that I LOVED the cover and it spoke right to my heart. As soon as I started reading, I seriously could not put it down and ended up reading the entire book in one day. Christian or not, this book is a MUST READ.
Everybody, Always talks about what it means to love without inhibition, insecurity or restriction. From finding the right friends to discovering the upside of failure, this book guides the way to embodying love by doing the unexpected, the intimidating and the seemingly impossible.
One of my favorite quotes from the book is: “I don’t think people grow old. I think they just lose their imaginations and end up looking old.” In his chapter “Be.Not.Afraid.” Bob talks about how important it is to find a place that reminds you of yourself and who you’re becoming. He emphasizes on the importance of having a place to go that allows you to reconnect to your imagination, creativity or simply makes you forget about all the other things going on. Gosh, I couldn’t agree with him more! Do you know where this place would be for you?
What Bob writes makes one believe that anything is possible. He includes stories about his own failures and struggles, retelling them in a teachable and relatable way. I hope you will find this book inspiring and challenging to live out the life you want, even when things and people can be difficult.
I hope you are excited for this month’s read! Can’t wait to hear what you think of this book.
