“You can change the world!”
“A Pocketful of Seeds author and social-change agent Debbie Johnson issues a challenge to herself and her readers: let’s sow “seeds” into the world every day for a year and watch how we – and the world – are transformed.”
This 365-day devotional book has encouraging words and a challenge for the day. Each passage is rooted in scripture and offers an opportunity to change the world, in your own patch of the “garden.”
For example, for a day in November, the passage talks about life-changing moments and how we may not love hearing about someone’s mission trip or vacation, but to the person who went on the adventure, it altered their world. So if we see their journey in photos, we can understand the emotion behind it better, because we can literally see change happening, or lives touched. That day challenges readers to “capture seeds of change in photos”, as in pictures of differences being made in their world.
The book is laid about beautifully and each day has an easy-to-read piece that inspires you to help others and do some good. I found the words uplifting and felt spurred by each challenge, determined to activate each of them. The author shares that we can put into action generosity, kindness, hope, and love. It all starts small. It starts simple. And it starts with us. She firmly believes that our actions will create a domino effect, spreading these seeds from one person to the next.
