Max Lucado’s You Changed My Life is all about loving people and making a difference in their lives. A marvelous gift book to someone you know have made a difference in yours. I can think of a few people who have made a difference in my own life and that makes me want to just paste my own stories on them in the book. Such and then some, is the impact of a life invested to minister to another.
The stories in You Changed My Life inspirit the reader to make an impact to the people who you influence in your life. I tear up easily whenever I watch movies with this theme and reading through the wonderful stories is no different, with my heart swelling with gratitude for those very people whose lives have made an impact in mine. They are instrumental to why I do the things I do now.
If someone has changed your life for the good, now is the time to celebrate by letting them know how much they matter.
Oftentimes true heroes of faith don’t stand out in the world, but they have made a lasting difference in someone’s life—they’re a hero to someone. This gift book celebrates their story by first providing a dedication beginning with “You changed my life by___” to be written in detail by the giver to the recipient. To follow are stories told by Max about others who have answered the call of their convictions and took steps of faith (both big and small) resulting in lasting change in the lives around them. It’s a message that honors the person who receives the book, and inspires us all to see that real people with remarkable hearts can change lives.
