Worth Getting in Bed For? Yes. And Worth Getting Out of Bed For This is a quick yet inspiring read about the author’s 12 day trip to Uganda with her son and Church group and how it impacted her life. This isn’t flowery prose but heartfelt narration and stories from various participants. Lisa is a board member for the organization that she represented and she lets yo know that throughout. But set that marketing aside and you have a call that any one person can give a little and make a big difference to someone who seemingly has nothing to give in return but a smile and love. Seeing the gratitude, smiles, and love changed the lives of her group and she encourages readers to find their call.
I found her story friendly and easy to read as well as inspiring. I especially liked the idea of taking a trip like this with your school age son like she did or daughter like another participant What small thing are you doing to make a difference? Sponsoring a child, donating canned goods, volunteering at church, offering a prayer or a simple thank you… I know I can up my game, what about you?
