Be You. Do Good: A Book Review

About The Book:

You were created for a meaningful life
Are you looking for purpose in your life? Trying to find a career that is a calling? Each day you can make a difference by being yourself and doing good. The greatest impact you can have is probably just around the corner, within your grasp, and embedded in your heart. It may not be easy, but it is accessible.

Jonathan Golden takes you on twelve adventures to discover not just who you are but how you can have the courage to find your calling and do good in the process. As a pastor and the founder of Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee Company, a multimillion-dollar social enterprise, he is living out his unique calling to promote social, spiritual, and economic justice in the lives of thousands of Rwandans, while at the same time giving you a great cup of coffee. For ten years he has invited millions to "Drink Coffee. Do Good." and now he invites you to Be You. Do Good.

My Review:

Pursuing our dreams and goals to do what God wants for our lives seems to be a theme in many of the books I have been reading lately, and once again this theme comes to life in Be You, Do Good by Jonathan David Golden. It was a very good read and I love that the author wrote in a very simple, conversational manner, making it feel like I was right in the room listening to him, or sitting and having coffee with him and listening to his story. The book will will give you little steps to help you be you so you can do good for His plan in your life. It is encouraging and challenging in one and is a book I quite enjoyed. Also great is that each chapter has a few questions that will allow for personal reflection as you pursue your dreams and goals. This book was a great reminder that we don't have to completely change our lives to do good. We can do good right where we are, with the tools we have at our disposal, but we do have to get up and get our of our comfort zone sometimes to do just that! 

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up. 

BUY IT: You can purchase Be You, Do Good at your favorite Christian book retailer from Baker Books, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
