This book will change you; gently, kindly and surely. In the celebrating of our common humanity, Michael and Tom invite us to be open and present, to watch the changes in our own heart ripple into the world around us. --Wm. Paul Young, author of The Shack, Cross Roads, and Eve
Never feel alone! No darkness is too deep when we can share and relate to the depth of heart conveyed in these pages! --Terri Roberts, author of Forgiven: The Amish School Shooting, a Mother's Love, and a Story of Remarkable Grace
With poignant scenes and engaging stories, Michael and Tom share with readers the wisdom they've gleaned while ministering to those who are weak and worn and weary. By their example, Michael and Tom remind us that seemingly simple gifts, a warm meal, a gentle touch, a listening ear, and open embrace, can be powerful sacraments of healing, compassion, and grace. --Sarah Thebarge, author of The Invisible Girls and WELL

Their latest book gives further voice as to who they are and how their ministry of listening is life-changing. The title says it all - they are "Moved WITH Compassion," not moved BY compassion. Their approach is proactive, not reactive. They go to where people are hurting and share the presence of God. The book is full of examples of this, but a line from the book really hit home for me. At one point they talk about a heartbroken father who had been corresponding with them for a number of months. But just after he had lost a young daughter, he wrote to them, "Please help me embrace pain and burn it as fuel for the long journey of my healing" (p. 226). Michael and Tom deliberately put themselves in a position of trust for that man to be able to open his heart to them and to receive grace in return. As they state on the next page, "it is how compassion is meant to be." It's a good lesson for us all.
