Same Kind of Different as Me

I just finished the book, Same Kind of Different as Me. This is a book that will tug at your heart in so many different ways. It's a about a modern-day slave from Louisiana who finds himself in Fort Worth, TX, an international art dealer, and a determined women who loves God. I love how this book is written, it goes back and forth between two peoples point of view.

This story is filled with faith and love and will truly make you re-evaluate where they fit into your life. The main thing that really pulled on my heart is what God's purpose for me is in this life and am I allowing myself to hear what God is directing me to do for his kingdom. Am I making excuses to avoid His will? I love to see what God does in the lives of people. I love to see where He starts and all the little off-roading He does that we don't understand or notice until after it's all said and done. This book is filled with examples of this.

I HIGHLY recommend this book. It is extremely easy to read, very inspirational and thought provoking but will also give you a new love for God's people.

Kelly, I just finished reading this. Thank you so much for posting your review, because this book really is phenomenal. I checked it out at the library but I plan to buy it now so I can reread it every so often. WOW, really makes you think about your life and the direction it's going in. Also, like you said, about loving others - I already have been looking at people differently and need to be praying that I don't lose that!!
