Thankful Thursday - Light

“One man’s candle is light for many” Talmud

Someone emailed me, asked if I'd review her recently published book, and write a review. She's overcome an eating disorder and depression. She wants to give hope to others who are where she was

You bet I'll do it. Her heart wants to give back and give hope. There's nothing's better than that. 

Passing the torch to others struggling with darkness...showing that freedom is possible....It's what I've been doing since publishing my own book, In the Eye of Deception, in 2009. I remember how much struggled to write what I lived, but I knew it was time to tell, to give hope to others fighting their darkness. Many people over the years have told me or written me how much my story came to them as a message of hope. 

And every time I read about someone overcoming and giving back the hope they found, I'm in their corner, cheering them on because hope is the light turned on. 

Shannon will send me her book and after reading it I'll post a review. For now, if anyone wants to google her book it's Pound by Pound by Shannon Kopp. 

Happy Thursday, Guys. It's raining like crazy. Stay dry out there.

I love the quote you have chosen for today's post ...

Sometimes, we do not realise how we can (and do) help others. We are fellow human beings, (although sometimes our world does seem to forget this) but surely shouldn't helping each other be top of the list?

Enjoy your Thursday and have a Happy Easter Weekend

All the best Jan

Nikki, I love that you are giving back and helping others... I think that is what life is about. I want to get a copy of your book, I'll talk to you about it next week on FaceBook xox

Passing the torch is such a blessing to others! Anytime we have overcome something big is a chance to share and perhaps be a light to someone else. You, among many others, are doing just that. Thanks for the encouraging post, Nikki. Have a lovely weekend.

Easter hugs and blessings,

So much hope.

Passing the torch, paying it forward - when Jesus is involved, the ripples go on and on...
