Book Description

Women are the caretakers of the world. Yet global HIV and AIDS and extreme poverty can seem overwhelming. Even if these things break our mother’s hearts, how is a busy, full-time mom to get engaged and make a difference? Global Soccer Mom shows that everyday moms care deeply about these issues and long to engage the world in a meaningful way. Busy women everywhere will resonate with Shayne’s story as a mother of three who learned she could make a difference on the global level. Follow Shayne’s journey—sometimes humorous, sometimes poignant and learn how you can get involved too. Activist Shayne Moore knows the challenge of managing a home and the desire to make a difference for those who are suffering. As a full-time mom, she has journeyed from an insular suburban world into the arena of global advocacy, where she’s worked alongside media superstars to effect change. Using the power of story, she inspires women everywhere to start right where they are and make a real difference. Moore’s work has taken her far beyond her comfortable suburban home. She’s travelled to international summits and was featured in a commercial with Julia Roberts, George Clooney, and Matt Damon. She’s been interviewed by CNN, NBC, and The Wall Street Journal, and featured in a photo shoot in Vanity Fair’s “Africa” issue. You CAN make a difference. Real change starts right where you are.

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

As a œsoccer mom turned activist, Moore has watched her life take a turn she never expected. Full-time homemaker and mother of three, the author lived in suburbia when she felt God moving her to educate herself and those within her sphere of influence about worldwide illness, hunger, poverty, and abuses against women and children. What Moore never expected was that she would become a noncelebrity spokesperson for the Campaign to Make Poverty History and would rub shoulders with the likes of Bono, George Clooney, and Julia Roberts. Moore describes her journeys to other countries in vivid and heartbreaking detail. While the worldwide need can appear overwhelming, this caring mom shows by example the way to making individual powerful choices to alleviate suffering, no matter where it finds its home. Moore offers the resources for getting educated and getting involved in this no-excuses primer on changing the world one small step at a time. (Feb.)

'What would happen if you decided to change the world? All it takes is one person. In Global Soccer Mom, Shayne Moore reminds us that you don't need to be rich, powerful, or influential to make a difference in the world.' -- Richard Stearns, President, World Vision US <br><br>

5.0 out of 5 stars Down to Earth Inspiration to Change the World March 17, 2011
Shayne writes with an authentic voice and down to earth style about the spirit and struggles of taking steps to put faith in action on behalf of the poor, especially those impacted by the global HIV/AIDS pandemic. She is honest, hands-on, and practical in her approach. I appreciated the great variety of quotes and statistics added to each chapter. Most of all, she her words echo my thoughts and the ache in my heart for the church to do more to make a positive difference for justice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational January 27, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Shayne Moore does a great job of both creating an inviting narrative and inspiring others to follow her lead--investing their time and talents in helping others, particularly in some of the more demanding issues such as global poverty and AIDS.

Most importantly Shayne gives specific details of things that any person can do and lists some great organizations that are relatively easy to engage with strong effectiveness.

The book is a fire-starter and proof that it only takes a spark (or a spark plug) to start a movement. I was personally stoked that she mentioned GrowersFirst [...], one of my favorite charities developing sustainable solutions to rural poverty with coffee farmers through traceable transformation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful and inspiring January 27, 2011
Through the power of story, Shayne Moore has crafted a wonderful, inspiring book that balances humor and poignancy in good measure. Sharing the details of life-changing events across oceans and cultures in her own life, Shayne's down-to-earth tone makes the telling all the more personable, as if you are listening to an old friend share the stories that changed her and are sure to change you in turn. Each chapter closes with important statistics and facts on HIV, AIDS, hunger, disease, and more, and there is plenty of guidance on how to get involved, leading others to real action in their own lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Global Action from Home January 27, 2011
Shayne Moore inspired me to realize that my everyday life matters and that it makes a difference around the world. That I can make a difference for families around the world without having to actually pack it up and move to Zambia. That my daily routine, my prayers, my thoughts and my advocacy matter. Shayne made helping others attainable and manageable and best of all, she made it real. "Global Soccer Mom" is a must read for those ready to make a difference yet still nervous as to how to actually pull it off. Thanks Shayne for the wisdom and insight to go for it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Read It And Weep February 1, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Shani shares her passion and compassion for those (especially women and children) who are suffering from poverty, abuse and AIDS in a very compelling way. I appreciate that she weaves us into her own experiences and emotions as whe writes of her visits to worlds so opposite from her own. Her storytelling helps me feel what she felt.

I hope and pray that many young moms will be infected with this desire to reach beyond their homes, husbands and see God's love working through them to make a profound difference in the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring story, a great read! January 27, 2011
By H. Lee
Shayne Moore is not just a soccer mom; she is a fabulous storyteller and a woman of deep faith whose heart was moved to make a difference in the world today. But what I love most about her book is how accessible she makes "changing the world" to the reader--instead of being overwhelmed with the problems we see around us, Shayne inspires us to take action in tangible ways that can all add up. It's a great read that leaves you inspired and energized to follow her example. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Empowering January 27, 2011
Too many people cower or run when they hear the words "change the world." Shayne Moore shows everyone--moms, dads, daughters, sons--why there's no need. Shayne uses her own story of moving from detached suburban mom to a "world changer" in a way that inspires anyone reading to make a difference in their own way. Her story proves that we can make a difference on a global level--that we can right some of the wrongs of the world--no matter where we live.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wealth of information January 27, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Global Soccer Mom has a wealth of information on the HIV and AIDS crisis along with those suffering from extreme poverty. I am still in the phase of life where I am worried about "strep throat that won't go away" so I needed something that summarized this complex and layered issue concisely. The book is easy to read with authentic and humorous stories that describe Shayne's journey from Bono to Africa and back.
