Love Does | Bob Goff
Available through Amazon.
You know all those memes with The Most Interesting Guy in the World? I think they have the image wrong. The face that should be familiar to everyone belongs to Bob Goff. Goff is the author of my April Book Club pick, Love Does - Discover a Secretly Incredible Life in an Ordinary World.
This is a man that spent 16 days bobbing atop the Pacific Ocean with 5 other college students and a case of canned meat. He is someone that took his kids on a world ice cream sampling tour. A man that pursues his passions regardless of status or opinions on whether or not he has the credentials or where-with-all to succeed. Yet succeed he does.
Or rather, Love Does.
One of my favorite quotes from the book, sums up a belief and mind-set that Goff and I share:
"Living a life fully engaged and full of whimsy and the kind of things that love does is something most people plan to do, but along the way they just kind of forget. Their dreams become one of those "we'll go there next time" deferrals. The sad thing is, for many there is no "next time" because passing on the chance to cross over is an overall attitude toward life rather than a single decision.”
This is the kind of attitude that brought an unbelievable career to a small town girl with few talents but a whole lot of determination. It's the attitude that gave me my big, beautiful, incredible family. It took me to Africa where I was called to help the helpless, and it's the same attitude that carries me down wooded paths with my youngest daughter looking for signs of faeries. It compelled Goff to spend three long years pursuing his wife before she'd even consent to go out with him and got him into law school when he in no way (on paper) met the acceptance criteria.
Chock-full of nearly unbelievable stories from a very believable guy, Bob Goff. The premise of Love Does is that you can't just feel it or talk about it, you must DO it! And when love does... beautiful things happen. It's love in action!
