You Matter More Than You Think: What a Woman Needs to Know about the Difference She Makesby Leslie Parrott
Synopses & Reviews
A Gold Medallion Award-winning author helps female readers realize they are making a distinctive difference by the life they live. In this book she explains that the more one understands the difference she is making, the bigger that difference will be.
Am I making a difference?
Does my life matter?
"How can I make a difference when some days I can't even find my keys?" asks award-winning author Leslie Parrott. "I've never been accused of being methodical, orderly, or linear. So when it came to considering my years on this planet, I did so without a sharpened pencil and a pad of paper. Instead, I walked along Discovery Beach, just a few minutes from our home in Seattle.
"Strange, though. All I seemed to ever bring home from my walks on the beach were little pieces of sea glass. Finding these random pieces eventually became a fixation. And, strangely, with each piece I collected, I felt a sense of calm. What could this mean? What was I to discover from this unintentional collection?"
In this poignant and vulnerable book, Leslie shows you how each hodgepodge piece of your life, no matter how haphazard, represents a part of what you do and who you are. While on the surface, none of these pieces may seem to make a terribly dramatic impact, Leslie will show you how they are your life and how when they are collected into a jar--a loving human heart--they become a treasure.
