You Matter More Than You Think : What a Woman Needs to Know about the Difference She Makes
Do you wonder if your life makes a difference in this world? Do you think you should be a clone of Mother Teresa or a replica of Catherine Booth--or at least more like the woman down the street? The truth is, God created each of us as an original. Gold Medallion Award-winning author Dr. Leslie Parrott believes that whether you know it or not, you are already making a distinctive difference by the life you live. In this book she helps you see that the more you understand the difference you are making, the bigger that difference will be.
Am I making a difference? Does my life matter?
"How can I make a difference when some days I can't even find my keys?" asks award-winning author Leslie Parrott. "I've never been accused of being methodical, orderly, or linear. So when it came to considering my years on this planet, I did so without a sharpened pencil and a pad of paper. Instead, I walked along Discovery Beach, just a few minutes from our home in Seattle.
"Strange, though. All I seemed to ever bring home from my walks on the beach were little pieces of sea glass. Finding these random pieces eventually became a fixation. And, strangely, with each piece I collected, I felt a sense of calm.
What could this mean? What was I to discover from this unintentional collection?"
In this poignant and vulnerable book, Leslie shows you how each hodgepodge piece of your life, no matter how haphazard, represents a part of what you do and who you are. While on the surface, none of these pieces may seem to make a terribly dramatic impact, Leslie will show you how they are your life and how when they are collected into a jar--a loving human heart--they become a treasure.
