"Outlive Your Life" and "One Hand, Two Hands" by Max Lucado

We have all seen the stories and pictures on the news, of the suffering and needs that exist in the world. In just the last few weeks we have seen floods and earthquakes tear apart people's worlds. And close to home we see poverty, hunger, and prejudice making life difficult for so many people. What if we had an opportunity to change that? What if we had an opportunity to make a difference in the life of one person or the lives of many?


In Outlive Your Life: You Were Made to Make a Difference Max Lucado shows you how you can do that. Armed with stories of Biblical and contemporary greatness, Lucado introduces you to the many people who have outlived their lives and left a legacy in this world. In each chapter, Lucado will help you overcome the obstacles in your life and give you inspiration to go out into the world and do so.


This book will definitely challenge you and inspire you to look for ways you can make a difference in your neighbourhood and the world at large. Each chapter is short, to the point, and full of real-world examples. The discussion and action guide will help you delve deeper into yourself, the Bible and your potential. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for ways to make a difference.


One Hand, Two Hands is a book about the amazing potential a young ones hands have to make a difference in this world. It shows children that not only are their hands capable of helping them (brushing teeth, picking up toys) but capable of helping others (writing letters, wiping tears.)


This book is perfect for young children, pre-school age and early school age. I read this with my 3 year old daughter and she loved it. The message is simple and easy for children to understand and the illustrations are perfect for kids who aren't reading yet. The book easily leads into a discussion between parent and child about what kids can do to help others.


Little ones will love One Hand, Two Hands and so will parents. Being able to read this with my daughter as I read Outlive Your Life was a wonderful experience and is a perfect tool as we teach our daughter the importance of helping others.
