Make Their Day: 101 Simple, Powerful Ways to Love Others Well
By Karen Ehman
2020 was a year of a lot of hate and negativity but not much love, positivity or action.
If you’re looking to break that mold by shining some light, sharing some love, and sprinkling kindness everywhere you go but have no idea how to go about doing that, then look no further!
Make Their Day: 101 Simple, Powerful Ways to Love Others Well by Karen Ehman is a short book packed with practical wisdom, tips and consideration on how to live a joyful life that overflows into the lives of others.
Make Their Day is a quick read, containing only 142 pages, that offers the reader applicable ways to reconnect with family and friends, develop habits of purposeful intention, celebrate holidays and the ordinary days, prioritize encouragement and selflessness in a world that is cruel and selfish, and serve neighbors, loved ones, those who are neglected and others within the reader’s community or sphere of influence.
Friend – no matter who you are, what you do, or where you live, you have influence and a unique opportunity to make an impact! Even if you feel like you lack the time, talent or skill, Ehman will inspire you otherwise. Using her signature recipe of relatability, practicality, and creativity, Ehman offers 101 ideas to help you be the change you wish to see in the world. She includes ideas on everything from offering to watch someone’s kids or kidnap their laundry to sending a meal or befriending an initial service worker. There are so many options to choose from, there is no choice that is stale or that you could ever overuse.
Yes, it is possible, but first you must remove your blinders so you can consider those who need your exact brand of love and kindness. Make Their Day will assist you in serving those you do life with by focusing groups of loved ones into 8 different categories – your friends, immediate family, your community, those you interact with in the internet world, those you love but don’t live near, those who are hurting or need help, those within the universal Church, and those who enter into your home. Likewise, the eight sections each offer about 10 different ways (on average) to make someone’s day EXTRAordinary!
Make Their Day is a must read, must need book for the current season we are experiencing as a country. It will motivate you to do something good, positive, and kind. It will guide and direct you to pursue Jesus in all that you do so you can reflect His light and show His love to a world that is hurting. It is a handbook of easy, doable acts of service that will lead you to go above and beyond the status quo.
