Hope lifter-Book Review

“You cannot open a book without learning something.” 
― Confucius                                                                               

I had the opportunity to receive this book called Hopelifter by Kathe Wunnenberg to read and review and  it was an enjoyable book.  We can all offer hope to someone we know by supporting them as they are going through trying times, crisis or hardships in their life. Many of books I have read in the past are generally to encourage us but this book goes beyond that and shows you how to reach out to others when they are needing encouragement in their lives. This book will lift your hope and is a great inspiration and teaching tool to help us see needs in others lives and shows us ways to meet others needs.
Sometimes when we are going through our own struggles and hardships in life we sometimes can get self absorbed.  There are other people in our life that may have a need and we all have God given talents to use to minister and help others.

This book was very enlightening. eye opening and encouraging and a great teaching tool!

My mother used to say when she was having a bad day, whether she felt discouraged, or stressed or whatever it was she would go and take someone a pie, soup or whatever she made.  That was her ministry or talent to cook and bake.  In doing so she would be blessed, she was giving hope or being a hope lifter.
In order to receive a blessing from God in our life we need to sometimes be a blessing.  I know sometimes myself I get in a rut and was in one but am so glad this book helped get me out of it.

We all have talents that are God given and we should tap into them and use them to encourage others and give hope.

Be Blessed and be a Blessing!
