So I just finished reading this book called Christmas Jars by Jason F. Wright.  Now I’ll admit it is a predictable story but I think it sends a message everyone should hear.  This book is not just about giving money… no it’s about something much more than that.  It’s about giving of ourselves, our full selves.  Opening up and taking the time to see the people around us.  So many people are involved in their own lives that they miss the things that are right in front of them.  And sometimes it’s those things we need the most.

This story tells of a family that has a special tradition every Christmas of giving a jar of money away to people who need it.  And it is this tradition that changes the lives of so many people.  Giving the gift and not expecting anything in return and not telling people is selflessness.  I feels it shows the true heart of giving.  I think that this book demonstrates a concept that is hard to comprehend.  So many people want to be thanked for their gifts but is that truly giving?  What do you think?

I would recommend this book because it is a quick read.  I’ll admit that many people may find it predictable and cheesy, but they’ll also find it inspirational.  People may think I’m corny for liking an inspirational story but how many people go see and love movies like “Remember the Titians” or “The Blindside”?  I like a little dose of inspiration in my life because we hear so much about bombings and shootings, sometimes I just need a story that ends happily.  What are you’re opinions on the book?

    I liked the book. So do many others, otherwise this book would not have been sold out at all the stores this time of year. You could not find it anywhere!!! There is a sequel as well. It too is hard to find. So with that said. I think everyone needs a little dose of inspiration. Keep on reading and writing. I agree with your review and suggest that you keep on reviewing. Review more books I like it.

    This is a great approach to what, for some, may be a suspect topic. Very well though out post. – Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life. – Immanuel Kant

    Thanks for your article. One other thing is when you are advertising your property on your own, one of the concerns you need to be aware of upfront is just how to deal with property inspection reports. As a FSBO owner, the key about successfully shifting your property as well as saving money on real estate agent profits is awareness. The more you are aware of, the more stable your sales effort will likely be. One area where by this is particularly significant is home inspections.
