Proud to be Weird {a review}

I am so excited about this book I am about to tell you about. My friend Laurie Wallin worked hard on this project and it is oh so good!

Why Your Weirdness Is Wonderful: Embrace Your Quirks and Live Your Strengths has an unique perspective on all those little quirks that we are always trying to change about ourselves.

 I have a lot of quirks if you will. I sometimes wonder how in the world I am supposed to be using them because they aren't always the most positive things in the world. When I hurt, I really hurt and when I am passionate about something, I am really passionate about it. I love delving in and learning more about the things that grab my interest but I am not good at memorizing things. I love creating things but hate having to clean up the mess that I will make doing it. So how in the world do I take all of that and do what God would want me to do.

 Well for one, I write on here. It brings me a lot of joy and peace to write in this space. I love being able to create a passion in others for those causes that have grabbed my heart like Sole Hope, End Bible Poverty, Compassion International, and Exodus Road. I love reading all the history of life and traditions back in the era of the Bible, and I love being able to throw that into discussions with John. I don't memorize things well but I can summarize them and also point out where it fits in with other areas.

My point is that God gave us all kinds of quirks and we need to learn how to use them. This book brings in a lot of unique techniques for doing that. Things that I have never thought about before. This book made me proud to be as weird and quirky as I am. I can't say enough good things about it. Of course I am going to direct you to Amazon to buy this book. But I really want you to click over and buy it. I feel that strongly about it. If you have any quirks that you just think that you have to change to be "perfect" and a better Christian- you need this book. Because that quirk is there for a reason. You need to figure out how to use it to the level God wants you to and also in the way that God had in mind when he gave it to you. That is where this book is going to be your best friend. BUY THIS BOOK! BUY THIS BOOK FOR ALL YOUR FRIENDS!
