The Love Revolution review & GIVEAWAY!! CLOSED

This giveaway is now CLOSED! Congratulations to Katie, Hil'Lesha, giggling kids, Leslie, and ellie for winning.


Full Description

(taken from the Hachette Book Group website)

Joyce Meyer is not satisfied with the status quo. She believes that we each need to become a revolutionary and practice love every day. And if Joyce has her way, the revolution will spread - person by person, house by house, town by town, until the old culture of selfishness and greed gives way to a new culture of concern for others.

The book is a revolutionaries' manual, a hands-on primer for bringing the Golden Rule to life in the twenty-first century. Meyer starts out by giving some stunning statistics. Right now...210,000 children will die this week because of poverty; 640 million children do not have adequate shelter; every day, 3,000 children are abducted into the sex-trafficking industry; every day, 16,000 children die from hunger-related causes. She goes on to say that although crisis is global, the solution is local. We can't solve the world's problems, but that isn't a reason to remain idle.

LOVE REVOLUTION focuses on personal behavior on the local scale. It's not just a call to action; it is a call to being: being the person who goes out of your way to encourage someone who's out of hope; being the one who smiles at a stranger; being the one who is willing to do something for nothing. The paradox: when we do something for nothing, what we often get is something far greater.

About Author

MY REVIEW

I really like Joyce Meyer. I enjoy her speaking and her writing. I love her down-to-earth teaching style. The Love Revolution is a great book that I am certain we could ALL learn from. The topics range from overcoming evil with good to making people feel valuable and Meyer even suggests practical ways we can show love. The Love Revolution would make a wonderful group study as well. I would definitely recommend this book.

I love this quote from the back cover:

I take up compassion and surrender my excuses.

I stand against injustice

and commit to live out simple acts of God's love.

I refuse to do nothing. This is my resolve.

I am the Love Revolution.
