AlaskanAmyAge: 45-54Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Another Great Book by Karen EhmanDecember 31, 2016AlaskanAmyAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I love Karen Ehman and look to her as a mentor in my life even though I have never met her. She always gives wisdom to women in any stage of life. Listen, Love and Repeat did not disappoint me as it made me rethink how I often I show kindness in everyday life.
I loved her idea to listening to heart drops of those around me. I kept heart drops in mind when I purchased Christmas gifts this year. I have a job where I talk to other moms daily and I am consciously trying to show kindness and a listening ear to them.
Karen is an inspiration for hospitality and I was reminded in this book that people would rather be loved in an imperfect home than not be invited at all. As always Karens recipes never disappoint and her Peanut Butter Monster Oatmeal Cookies are a new favorite for my children.
I received an advanced copy of Listen, Love and Repeat, but I would have definitely bought this book to add to my collection of Karens books. Most of my books end up at the used book store, but this one will be reread yearly.
Linda5 Stars Out Of 5Let's start a movement!November 22, 2016LindaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was given an advanced reading copy of Listen, Love, Repeat by Karen Ehman for an honest review of the book.
This is a wonderful book written with much love and insight. Our world needs this kind of book, especially right now. The subtitle of the book says it all Other-centered living in a self-centered world. It seems that today people are more concerned about getting their voice heard than listening to others. They want to make sure they get what they want and have no concern for what anyone else may want or need.
This book sets out to change that. It prompts you to look at others differently; not to see them as those that get in the way of what you want but as an opportunity to give back; to lend a helping hand; to show love and kindness. What makes Karens insights particularly helpful is that she doesnt just tell you to get over yourself and start being nicer to others. There are real, practical ideas in the book. She addresses different types of people that you may come across and fun easy ways to sprinkle kindness as she puts it. She even helps to uncover methods you can use to bestow kindness on those around you that may be hard to love like the grumpy neighbor or the unruly kid. Everyone can use some kindness shown their way, the hard to love most of all.
I really enjoyed the book, the lessons, the personal stories and the ideas! I hope to encourage my family to spread kindness now and throughout the new year. If you are tired of all the negativity and anger going around in the world today, get this book and follow the suggestions to bring more love and kindness to those around you. Maybe it will start a movement!
KyannapCedar Rapids, IAAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Relatable & you'll start acting upon what you read.November 21, 2016KyannapCedar Rapids, IAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book will make you STOP to Listen, Love, Repeat. The personal stories that Karen shares not only make her relatable but the purpose of the book relatable. You will find yourself scattering kindness and maybe even stepping outside of your comfort zone to do so. I not only tuned in more to my family members, but to other people that crossed my path throughout the day. The movement that came out of this book, #5dollardash, will warm your heart. This is a quick and easy read. There may be a little bit of repetition throughout chapters, but hey, that's how we talk. I bought a couple of copies to share with friends and family. My hope is that they pass it along to their family & friends. Disclaimer: I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Best book I've read on selfless livingNovember 16, 2016bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This may be the best book yet that I have read about living a life loving others. The insights are great and the examples inspiring. If there is one book I'd recommend to practically learn about a selfless life, this is it.
Ehman reminds us that we live in a self saturated society. Living as a person who thinks of others first will take effort on our part. But that effort will be much easier after reading this book. Ehman gives practical suggestions to bless others. She pays particular attention to the physical and emotional needs of others.
People around us are longing to be loves, Ehman writes. She reminds us we need to be proactive in our faith, living alert and opening our lives to sacrificial living. She draws from examples in the Bible, from her own life, and from the lives of others. She has a great section on what to say and not say when others are hurting. She includes 39 passages from the New Testament that tell how, and how not, to treat other people. She has excellent suggestions for interacting with those who are grieving. She inspires us to use our homes and our stuff to show our love for others.
And practical Ehman is. She is down to earth in her suggestions. Having others over? Forget the fancy recipes. Have a baked potato bar or build your own burger dinner. Better lots of meat loaf and mashed potatoes than a fancy new dish you saw on social media having ingredients no one recognizes. Her suggestions for touching the heart of the cantankerous are worth noting. I love the idea of giving unbirthday gifts and scattering kindness.
I highly recommend this book to those ready to live a selfless life. You will find great encouragement and very practical suggestions.
Food for thought: Sometimes the best strategy is to keep your mouth shut and your hands open. (181) And, The only way to go about loving the difficult is to expect nothing in return. (182)
I received a complimentary copy of this book through Icon Media. My comments are an independent and honest review.
