Earlier this week I shared about two books that are on my Spring Reading List. You can read about them here: Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World by Michael Hyatt and More Than Enchanting by Jo SaxtonThe third book is by my friend Noel Yeatts. Noel inspires me every single time I’m around her.

Awake: Doing a World of Good One Person at a Time

AWAKE by Noel YeattsFrom Amazon’s description:
If we’re being honest, most of us live comfortable, safe, and relatively easy lives. We enjoy a quality and ease of living that most of the world could not even imagine, let alone pursue. After all, even the poorest people in America are amongst the top five percent of the wealthiest people in the world, and the faces of those who suffer the most across the globe are distant and unfamiliar to us. As we busily navigate the path towards the American Dream, another dream has been forgotten–the hope that what is broken in this world may be restored to its intended fullness. The truth is we know we should help those less fortunate than us, but the needs of the world are so overwhelming. Where do we start? Where can we make the most impact?

This compelling, story-driven book urges readers to open their eyes to the needs of a hurting world. It is a gripping, to-the-point challenge to get involved in realistic, positive change–one life at a time. Building on more than twenty years of experience in humanitarian relief efforts and community development around the world, author Noel Brewer Yeatts urges readers to realize that working to build a better world is not about guilt, handouts, or charity. It is about justice, compassion, and personal investment. She encourages readers to live a life fully AWAKE. . . and doing a world of good.

AWAKE is available for pre-order on Amazon for $10.39 in paperback. (You can use the widget below.)

Disclosure: At the time of this writing, I’ve paid very little attention to affiliate marketing. This post is an experiment to see how one “pins” items from Amazon onto Pinterest and whether or not any sales would reflect an increase. Just curious, but wanted to be upfront about me raking in the cash. :)
