My Review
Yet another book which has been recently telling me that I need to be more involved. I think God's telling me something. Almost everything lately has been about compassion, helping others or orphans. The stories in the book are great. They're not so long that you can't read a few in one seating. It took me only 2 days to read the whole book. There are so many stories and each one is linked to Scripture. I can see this being a good devotional or a great gift book.

I was provided with a copy of the book in return for a review. No additional compensation has been received and I was not required to write a positive review.
