9780801014581: Awake: Doing a World of Good One Person at a Time

If we're being honest, most of us live comfortable, safe, and relatively easy lives. We enjoy a quality and ease of living that most of the world could not even imagine, let alone pursue. After all, even the poorest people in America are amongst the top five percent of the wealthiest people in the world, and the faces of those who suffer the most across the globe are distant and unfamiliar to us. As we busily navigate the path towards the American Dream, another dream has been forgotten--the hope that what is broken in this world may be restored to its intended fullness. The truth is we know we should help those less fortunate than us, but the needs of the world are so overwhelming. Where do we start? Where can we make the most impact?

This compelling, story-driven book urges readers to open their eyes to the needs of a hurting world. It is a gripping, to-the-point challenge to get involved in realistic, positive change--one life at a time. Building on more than twenty years of experience in humanitarian relief efforts and community development around the world, author Noel Brewer Yeatts urges readers to realize that working to build a better world is not about guilt, handouts, or charity. It is about justice, compassion, and personal investment. She encourages readers to live a life fully awake . . . and doing a world of good.

From the Back Cover:

You can change the world--one life at a time.

Most of us enjoy a quality of life that much of the world could not even imagine. It's easy to live unaffected by the injustices and impossible realities on the other side of the world. The truth is, we know we should help those less fortunate than us, but when the faces of those who suffer are distant and the need feels so overwhelming, where do we start? Where can we make the most impact?

This compelling, story-driven book urges us to open our eyes to the needs of a hurting world and to get involved in realistic, positive change. It's not about guilt, handouts, or charity--it's about justice, compassion, and change.

It's time for us to be fully awake to the needs of a hurting world . . . and do a world of good one person at a time.
