You Changed My Life - Max Lucado

Synopsis (from Barnes and Noble):

If someone has changed your life for the good, now is the time to celebrate by letting them know how much they matter. Often times true heroes of faith don't stand out in the world, but they have made a lasting difference in someone's life-they're a hero to someone. This gift book celebrates their story by first providing a dedication beginning with "You changed my life by___" to be written in detail by the giver to the recipient. To follow are stories told by Max about others who have answered the call of their convictions and took steps of faith (both big and small) resulting in lasting change in the lives around them. It's a message that honors the person who receives the book, and inspires us all to see that real people with remarkable hearts can change lives.

I got this book, read it and immediately thought of a friend who has made a huge impact in my life so I ordered one for her. This is a collection of short stories of people who have amazing things happen in their lives thanks to amazing people. A sort of Chicken Soup style if you will. It's definitely sweet and will even bring a tear to your eyes. The author is a well known author who has never written anything un true or not a best seller. He has a way with words and stories that makes you want to change and become better in any way. And if you have someone in your life who is amazing, send them this book! Amazing gift!
