Synopses & Reviews
In the hurly burly of this busy world, simple kindness and goodness can get left behind in the rush to be first in line, to the top of the corporate ladder, and to have the most likes. But, what does it all mean at the end of the day? Isn't being a good person and making real contributions to the world more important than anything else? Author Brenda Knight, part of the team who made the world a better place with Random Acts of Kindness
as well as a little more thankful with The Grateful Table
, writes "At the end of life, I feel sure having lots of money, fancy cars, and real estate is not nearly as important as how much love you gave to the world." This realization was the inspiration for Be a Good in the World
, a book of "good days" filled with ideas for making a difference.
Its wonderful to be reminded that even a small act of kindness can make a difference in the world. And if we all try to do better, even if it is in small ways, maybe things wont have to be so bad. Thats how Knights Be a Good in the World” inspires.
Praise for The Grateful Table:
"Knight has lit the path of gratitude and spurred us to make this important spiritual practice the center of our lives. The quotations, exercises, and inspirational passages reveal the author's deep understanding of the bounties of spirituality put into our relationships, activities, and rituals."
