In a world of fast-paced schedules and priorities, conversations about what makes for a life well lived are a rarity and a luxury. But what if the daily pace of life held in itself the way to make choices more significant? What if the daily to-do lists gave a glimpse into how people might change their future? What if the daily grind, as arduous as it might seem, held the key to a life full of meaning and potential? What if everyday, simple steps, instead of some complex list of seemingly unattainable principles, showed how to make life matter?

Making Life Matter answers these questions and shows that the steps for making life matter are found in rather ordinary decisions, attitudes, and patterns found in normal routines. This book is about our story and our journey, and what we do and feel along the way.

My Thoughts On This Book!

In this book, Shane Stanford usues his own story in showing his readers how they can change the course of their lives and make life matter, no matter the circumstances. The author overcame being HIV positive, a disorder that came from bad blood, literally. In the day and age that HIV was pointed to the gay community, this was especially difficult for the author, But he survived, and so can you.

The author also tells the stories of several other people who overcame their difficulties in life to go forward and live a successfully fulfilled life. Join Shane Stanford as he relives the most difficult moments of his life in order to help others overcome theirs.

I recommend this book to anyone facing any difficulty. As you follow the authors tips and suggestions, those he followed in his own life, you will be able to live a life changing successful life.

This book was provided by PUYB and Abingdon Press. I was not expected or required to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine only.
