If you’re wanting a closer look into the lives of those who are in poverty, look no further. This book perfectly exemplifies how you never know someone’s true story. This story takes you on a journey of self contemplation as it makes you think about your own actions in life and how you treat other people. More often then not, we tend to overlook the outcome of our actions, this book covers how one man’s life has helped thousands.
For me, it was cool to read about how this took place only 20 minutes from where I live. It was nice to be able to relate to some of the scenarios these people went through based on location and how they went about life.
This must-read is definitely a emotional ride through these people’s lives, and the amount of love and compassion I built for these people as I read through their life was a very personal traverse.
I enjoyed reading this book and I know you will too. It’s a very personal and engaging story full of passion, joy, confusion, anger and peace. I hope that this book rekindles the fire in your heart for helping others and making a change.
There are many stories of wives living a deep faith without sharing it with their husbands who are so busy providing for the family and short on time
or possibly just not interested in matters of faith and volunteerism. This husband was different because he went along reluctantly with his wife.
He was a Christian too, but his faith was just not as deep as his wife's. Her activities were o.k. as long as she did her volunteering 'on their side of the tracks'.
The other half of the story is a homeless drifter born in the deep south and enslaved in the "boss man - share cropper system". Orphaned at a young age, shifted from relative to relative, absolutely no chance for education, doomed to work for the boss man for his bare existence.
Until the day he decided to break loose and hitch a ride on the railways, joining the group of drifters from one place to another, more often than not hungry, sleeping under bridges, begging on street corners for just anything to eat or alcohol to drink - always hungry and/or drunk.. a bum , an outcast. That is until God and Debbie intervene..
Debbie hears of a Mission for the homeless in their city and is determined to volunteer there. Her husband Ron agrees to go with her, but mainly to protect her from the unsavory homeless (his attitude), God's children (her attitude) Debbie has never met a stranger, but Ron has met many.
There is one particular man that Debbie urges her husband to befriend, and therein lies the story. As the pages turn and as tragedy strikes, I shed many tears and vowed to see the homeless in new lights, they are human, God's children, who one day may have had a family, and now just need a touch from a compassionate heart. Denver, the homeless man Ron befriends, will warm your heart. Well written, absorbing. and life changing
with not a dull moment.
I only give it 5 stars because that’s the limit.
There really is NO LIMIT to the STARS I’d rate this Book.
Don’t let another day pass without reading “Same Kind Of Different As Me.”
I ordered multiple copies to share with anyone and everyone who enjoys reading.
Read it and pass it on....
Or get several copies like I did, because for me, I wanted to share it, but this one’s a KEEPER.
On my Bookshelf, is MY COPY.
It won’t ever be loaned out because it is one of my TREASURES.
