Thursday Giveaway: You Were Made to Make A Difference

Kids everywhere are making a difference. I learned just yesterday that MUST Ministries was started by a local youth group handing out sandwiches to their homeless neighbors – 39 years later, it serves individuals, families, and children all over the Marietta, Smyrna and Canton/Cherokee county communities!

Or there’s also Zach Hunter, who at the young age of 12, launched the Loose Change to Loosen Chains program to help combat modern-day slavery.

There are countless other stories of young people who have a passion who are helping others and making a real difference in the world around them. I recently read You Were Made to Make A Difference by Max Lucado and his daughter, Jenna Lucado Bishop. You might remember I previously reviewed Outlive your Life by Max Lucado – this is the teen version of that book.

I thought it was well written and a great resource, but honestly – I don’t know too many teenagers that are in the business of reading for fun! This is a great book to keep on your shelf as a resource when you want to encourage the passions of young kids to make a difference. I also think it’s a great resource to use as the basis of a curriculum on helping kids understand their purpose and value in life.

This week, I’m sharing the wealth – and passing on my copy to one lucky reader! There’s a catch though – if you win, you have to be willing to share with us, here on Soul Munchies, how you’ll use this book and how it’s making an impact in the lives of kids around you! To enter, simply leave a comment below. For an additional entry, share information about Soul Munchies on Facebook or Twitter and leave us the link below.

Comments will be closed at 11EST next Wednesday, November 24. US entries only, please.

    My son is a reader and a teen. I think this might be a good catalyst for him as he thinks of his Eagle Scout project.
