When I decided to start this blog, I made a rule that I wouldn’t discuss a book I have already read (unless I reread it). And plus I would be posting way too often. Yet, only five blog posts in, I decided to break that rule.
On March 31st, 2012 Denver Moore passed away in his home at the age of 75. Denver and Ron Hall’s story, as told in New York Times Bestseller Same Kind of Different as Me, shares the powerful and inspirational story of an unlikely friendship between an art dealer and a homeless man hardened by the streets and how faith and an amazing woman named Deborah brought them together.
Y’all, I have never cried so much in a book. It truly is one of the most profound stories I have ever read. It’s always the first book I give to people when they ask for recommendations. This story truly changed my life. So if you are looking for your next read, this needs to be it.
I’ll leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Denver:
“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 is all homeless – just workin our way toward home.”
