God's Guest List by Debbie Macomber is a must read!

Here's a bit from the publisher:
Who is on God’s “guest list” for your life . . . and why? The answers may surprise you!

Through touching true stories and inspiring insight Debbie Macomber takes readers on a journey to discover the shaping influence others have on us and the power we have to shape and influence those whose paths cross ours.

Perhaps the greatest treasure this book holds is the power to grasp our own power to influence others, and even to anticipate what lives we have yet to touch. In the tradition of How to Win Friends and Influence People, Macomber casts a vision to seize every opportunity to be a positive and faithful influence on others. With this realization comes the willingness and anticipation to live with the door of our lives wide open to greet each new life God brings across the threshold.

God's Guest List is filled with true stories and rich insight that will forever change how you see the people in your life.

My Review:

Each chapter is full of personal stories, in the way that only Debbie Macomber can write. It's then followed by a section which discusses the ideals and/or lessons that she's learned along her life and wishes to share with us.

At the end of each chapter there is a wonderful "RSVP" section that allows the reader to examine their own lives. It also has suggestions on how the reader may wish to apply the lessons to enhance their own lives as well as those around them.

Debbie's honesty and openness in sharing her faith, her own personal struggles as well as her blessings really brings truth to her words. For me, this was a wonderful inspiration!

This book carried a message that spoke deeply to my heart and just lifted me up to a new level. It helped me to find new positive ways of looking at my past, my present and my future and helped instill in me a greater need to impact others lives in such a positive way as well.

I highly recommend this book!
