She Did What She Could (SDWSC): Five Letters That Will Change Your Life by Elisa Morgan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I just finished reading this book and I want to begin my review with a question...okay...a series of questions.
Have you ever watched a program on TV about a situation or group of people in some sort of need and just felt your heart breaking for them? Have you sat through a special speaker at your church or an event who reaches out to people who are sick or living in poverty beyond our comprehension? Have you walked away with a passion to help only to have it fizzle out when you realized how overwhelming the task of helping truly is?
In this book, Elisa Morgan will grab your heart stings and show you how you CAN help...you CAN do something to change the world. It all begins with a simple story of a lady in the Bible who did what she could.
She Did What She Could is all about doing the simple things to help others out of the love you have for Christ. My favorite quote in this book is found on page 64: "Let even your deficits be your offering."
So many of us can come up with a long list of why we can't do anything or why we are not good at some many things. But the point of this book is not about becoming a better person, learning new skills...but rather using the ones we do have...or even as stated above, the ones we don't have to do what we can do. Love others. Serve Christ.
You will put this book down with a renewed sense of hope for what you can do to reach out in simple, little ways. If you have ever wished that you could change the world then this is what you need to read today!
