Yesterday for day 9 of our 31 days of compassion, we spent some time watching a movie or documentary highlighting issues of poverty or another culture from around the world. We would love to read your thoughts and experiences, and we will post our reflections soon as well. Today’s post is for those of us who love to read. We are also very excited to have our first-ever blog giveaway available. Please read on for further details on how you could win!
Today, we are choosing to read and review a book about issues of poverty, God’s heart for children, and spreading the love of Christ through kindness and compassion. I will be reading “Too Small to Ignore” by Dr. Wess Stafford, President Emeritus of Compassion International. I look forward to reviewing this wonderful book here on the blog when I am finished reading it.
