veyd5 Stars Out Of 5In Positive Awe of Human(Kind), by a Gifted WriterApril 10, 2020veydHeartbreaking at times, funny in the most unexpected ways, heartwarming throughout. Tears and laughter; "ouches" and insights along the way. You won't read this book without being drawn into the writer's stories. In them you'll discover (1) challenge, (2) at moments, emotional relatability to the experiences in your own stories, (3) new & honest possibilities for personal reflection, and (4) valuable learnings that inspire all of us to see & respond to the good in ourselves and in others. Ultimately, through pain and triumph, I love how Human(Kind) calls and guides us to be better, and to be kinder ... together. Plus, it is beautifully written.
Trinitee Riggins5 Stars Out Of 5Kindness - the secret weapon for detecting the intrinsic worth found in every personApril 9, 2020Trinitee RigginsQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Ashlee shares her journey through this book full of stories, circumstances, and experiences from her life where she felt both joy and pain, fear and contentment, defeat and boldness - learning through it all how to engage people in love. She bases her book on the call the apostle Paul gave the church at Ephesus in Ephesians 4 to "get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you". Embracing the worth in each person we encounter through kindness is Ashlee's challenge through what she has learned in her life stories that she shares with us. Such an inspiring, refreshing, and motivating read!
Monica R5 Stars Out Of 5A Must ReadApril 7, 2020Monica RQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We are all lost in the day to day hustle of life in one way or another. This lends itself to a cluttered brain that can be quick to speak and slow to listen. Human(kind) address the fact that we need to slow down to see and let ourselves be seen. Ashlee addresses the need for kindness and dignity in a beautiful and raw way. Her experiences that fill these pages brought joy, laughter, tears, questions, and excitement out of me all at once. These words matter, kindness matters, humans matter. Dive in!
BethanyAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Kindness Goes A Long WayMarch 18, 2020BethanyAge: 25-34Gender: femaleHuman(kind) is a book about showing kindness in an often unkind world. This book was not quite what I expected, because instead of a guidebook on kindness, it was more of the author's personal story. However, I found that to be engaging. Even though I did not agree with all of Eiland's personal beliefs, I applaud her for being willing to be vulnerable and tell her story. I also appreciated her message on still showing kindness and reaching out to other despite our differences. That is a message that is very timely in our world today.
"We all have burdens we've had to shoulder in life - circumstances that were hard to carry, that we never thought we'd live though. Some will never understand us, no matter how hard we try to tell our stories or justify our positions. But if we're willing to release some of ourselves for the sake of another in the spirit of radical kindness, to let go of power, control, or other lesser gods that we've been gripping so tightly, with enough attention, care, and love, we can still acknowledge the complexity and sacredness of one another's lives, even if we never understand the whole story."
I received a copy of this book from the publisher, in return for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
