Megan5 Stars Out Of 5So inspired to love on people!March 6, 2017MeganQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Love Lives Here is a balm to the weary soul, and an inspiration to go forth and love on people.
I was very excited to read Maria Goff's first book. I read and loved her husband's book (Love Does by Bob Goff). And, Love Lives Here does not disappoint!
Her husband affectionately calls her Sweet Maria, and the pet name is as advertised. The author is sweet and gentle while delivering kick-you-in-the-gut truths. I found myself moved to tears without warning in some chapters (in a good way) as she imparts lessons learned through her personal experiences.
My personal favorites of the lessons taught in this book: how to overcome loss ("Sad is okay, stuck isn't helpful."), the concept if finding a "board of directors" for your life, loving your neighbors, being healthy yourself is the best way to serve others, simplifying hospitality, and making a safety net for your husband and children at home.
Side Note: For those of you who read Bob Goff's book, she tells their love story from her side, which is fantastic. I also love that she gave her and Bob's Enneagram numbers in the book. Knowing this, I could understand and relate to them even more!
Her writing style is very similar to her husband's. There are no verbatim Bible verses, but many Biblical truths and Bible story retellings in simple language.
