So many thoughts about this book… it needs a whole blog post! First of all if you are even thinking about reading this book the answer is YES. I am not a reader at all, but I couldn’t put down this book. If don’t know anything about this book, just know it’s by Bob Goff, one of the greatest guys on the planet.
A short one sentence summary would be: He teaches you how to love people like Jesus loves people, even the ones that seem impossible to love.
This is a really hard topic, but Bob Goff makes it seem so simple. You just have to love Everybody, Always! No matter what. I know it’s a lot easier said than done though! The way he writes this book makes it so easy to read because you feel like you’re just having a conversation with him. Every chapter is a different story so it makes it interesting, but also is so inspiring I never thought I would be able to cry in a book, but I cried multiple times reading it. I not only cried, I laughed, smiled and was surprised almost every single chapter. This book made me feel all the emotions!
I read this book with my small group, and each week we did challenges that went with the chapters. It really pushed me out of my comfort zone, and made me move towards people that I usually wouldn’t hang out with or have conversations with. It taught me how to forgive, accept forgiveness, and also to leave all judgement behind! No matter who you are you will learn something from this book, I promise!
Another lesson I learned from Bob Goff was to always be available for people. He does this by putting his personal cell phone number on the back of the book, which I think is pretty cool. He also has a book called Love Does that I can’t wait to read next!
Basically read this book, and comment on this post what you think because even if you hate reading you will love this book! You can buy Everybody, Always here, or if you live in Fairhope you can borrow mine!
