More Than A Bucket List


~*~
by Toni Birdsong
Fun ideas of things to do, places to see, and ways to make a difference! 
Description:

Everyone dreams about places to see, people to meet, and things to do in their lifetime. But too often we lose sight of those dreams and get buried in everyday busyness and demands. More Than a Bucket List will inspire you to seize and act on a range of dreams—anything from visiting the Holy Land, donating your time at a soup kitchen, learning to climb a tree, or helping a child learn to read. The book also includes ideas to make lasting memories as you marvel at a new sight, laugh like crazy with an old friend, or change a life. 

The compilation of bucket list items is divided thematically and blended with Scripture and personal stories. Pages at the back allow you to write your own bucket list items. Are you ready to finish this life well and start checking off items from your bucket list?

Wow. I really enjoyed this read, and garnered fabulous treasures among More Than A Bucket List. So many of the topics sparked a fire under my bum to do what is right, what is good, and what is--ultimately--fulfilling.

This book doesn't champion an unreasonable to-do-before-you-die-list, but everyday gestures, outlooks and attitudes that will not only enrich the reader's life, but others he or she comes in contact with. There are short excerpts sharing a shining moment or a scenario in which the reader has a choice to make, and suggestions to choose choices that bring essence tot he reader's character.

I love my Kindle version of More Than A Bucket List, but wish I had it in print form as well so I could give it as a gift.
