Love Does!

What can I say about this book other than I LOVE IT!
This is my second time through the book, which means it was worth the time to reread.
It was assigned reading for my protege program, but I definitely don't mind.

Bob Goff is just as great as a speaker as he is with writing this book. I saw him speak in October at Catalyst.

Donald Miller mentions in the forward that Bob "will wreck your American dream and help you find your actual dream" (x). This book has challenged me to not take life so seriously, dream bigger dreams, and put love into action.

"I get the invitation every morning when I wake up to actually live a life of complete engagement, a life of whimsy; a life where love does. It doesn't come in an envelope. It's ushered in by a sunrise, the sound of a bird, or the smell of coffee drifting lazily from the kitchen. It's the invitation to actually live, to fully participate in this amazing life for one more day. Nobody turns down an invitation to the White House, but I've seen plenty of people turn down an invitation to fully live." (80)

Get this book and read it ASAP!
