Format: Paperback
This book is a great "how to" manual for feeding 50 or 1000+ people at Thanksgiving. It contains all of the nuts and bolts you need to know to recruit and manage volunteers; get, sort, and deliver all that food (an entire chapter draws on the author's professional experience as a fundraiser); partner with existing agencies; and individualize the information he shares to best fit you and your ministry. This book is much more than a how to manual though. The author pours out his heart for leaders and shares hard learned lessons from founding and running A Day of Hope for 5 years. Mr. Scott coaches you in discovering your strengths and leading out of your strengths, celebrating successes and persevering through challenges. He shares valuable, easy to understand principles such as "pay now, play later" and "do what you love, find someone to do the rest." Although his humility is apparent, he makes no excuses for how hard this work is. Rather, he encourages you to remember that "persistence trumps talent." And through it all, he draws us back to the main goal: we do all this in order to help our neighbors in need.

Christopher Scott created the manual for getting involved in your local community. Whether you want to create, sponsor or volunteer at something in the winter, spring, summer or fall, here is a guidebook for getting started, staying involved and celebrating afterward. Here's a short video calling out a few powerful quotes from the book.

[...]

Later on, after reading the book, I realized there are gems within each chapter. (For those of you who are managers/leaders, be sure to check out the information on running meetings that starts on page 92!)

Chapter 6 is where it gets very powerful...You'll have to read the whole thing, but let me share one quote with you (in italics): "Persistence trumps talent."

Go...Get started, and see what happens!
