I read a great ipad accessories review at iPadAccessoriesOnlineStore.com
I just found a new place to find and list giveaways – Giveaway Scout – All blog giveaways, contests and sweepstakes in one place. It’s a giveaway search engine that scans thousands of blogs daily and automatically post them to their site and email their subscribers. They also have a widget displaying the latest giveaways.
Same Kind of Different as Me is the inspirational true story of how 2 men, Denver, a former modern-day slave and hobo, and Ron, and international art dealer, forge an unlikely friendship. Brought together by Ron’s wife, you see how one woman changed both of their lives forever.
I’ll admit when I received the book I was interested in it only because it is set in Louisiana and Northeast Texas. (I’m from Louisiana and just returned from a visit there.) I did not expect to enjoy it as thoroughly as I did and I definately did not expect to be as moved by it as I was. Reading about Denver and Ron overcoming their prejudices I was forced to face my own. I was also encouraged by their ability to perservere through life’s many challenges.
This is a book of prejudice and injustice, hope and faith and perseverance through adversity. I have been recommending this book to anyone who will listen. No matter your walk of life you will take something away from this book.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com
