Book Review by Sarah


Same Kind of Different as Me by Ron Hall and Denver Moore

GREAT book I just read and really recommend. This book was actually given to me a couple years ago, but my Dad was reading it during his time here visiting and said it was a must read. During a couple nights of insomnia I gobbled it up. Truly an incredible, humbling, and inspiring story. It is written by two men, Ron and Denver, who paths and lives couldn't be further from the same, but God weaves them together in an extraordinary way. You come to love and respect both these men and fall deeply into their journey of learning about the 'other' and how we are actually so much more similar then we could ever imagine. The themes are of race, poverty, and love, but this story will touch you deeply and move you to see others differently.

Grade: A+

“But I found out everybody’s different- the same kind of different as me. We’re all just regular folks walkin down the road God done set in front of us. The truth about it is, whether we is rich or poor or somethin in between, this earth ain’t no final restin place. So in a way, we all is homeless- just workin our way toward home.”

I've read this book, too! I don't remember where I got it but I read it early this summer and loved it! It's such an inspiring story and what makes it even more amazing is that it's TRUE. Also, we hope Kieren had a lovely 1st Birthday (Wooooo!!!) and we wish you all the very best. Miss you tons!
