One of my students recommended a book to me which she is using to start a book club with her friends. The book is called “Be Beautiful, Be You” by Lizzie Velasquez. My student was so excited I read it myself, and while it is written on a simple reading level, the story of Lizzie’s struggles with health, bullying, and learning to trust in God is profound to any reader. Lizzie was born with a very rare, yet unnamed, medical condition preventing her from gaining weight or muscle mass, along with being blind in one eye. This book was very practical, and I am thankful that Lizzie has taken the time to share her story with the World.
Reading books changes us, but reading them and then passing them on to people who they can impact in a positive way, may just be a great way to change the world. So although you may not finish a new book today, next time you finish a good book, make a difference by sharing it with someone who means something to you. :-)
