Winning Wednesday - What Difference Do It Make?

During November, I gave away a copy of the Same Kind of Different As Me: A Modern-Day Slave, an International Art Dealer and the Unlikely Woman Who Bound Them Together by Ron Hall, Denver Moore and Lynn Vincent. This was a book I couldn't put down once I started it, so when I saw they had written a second book, I wanted to read it also. I read it, liked it and want one of my readers to be able to enjoy it also.
 So this week's Winning Wednesday is a copy of:   
 
by Ron Hall, Denver Moore and Lynn Vincent 

Whether you've read their first book or not, you will enjoy this book. It's filled with new, stand-alone true stories of hope and healing - some of the stories are the authors and some are sent in by readers of Same Kind of Difference as Me. 

Reading about the love these two men have for each other and for God is a joy.  And seeing the difference they make to people around them gives me hope and confidence that I can make a difference in this world also. It's an easy read, but packed with wisdom and encouragement. 

I like the honest, fresh comments from the authors. In one chapter, Denver is tough on Christians ... he wonders why some of them are so busy studying the Bible - they don't have time (or don't want to) do what it says. He also says, "Everbody's lookin for God everywhere on the outside. He ain't in no book, and He ain't in no preacher, and He ain't in nothin or no one on the outside. You got to go inside 'cause that's where God is - in the deepest place inside you." 

I like this man and his logic.  

Leave your name for a chance to win this hardcover book.
Winner will be posted on Friday.
