More than A Bucket List: Making Your Dreams, Passions and Faith a Reality by Toni Birdsong is a cheesy but a fun read. Good to use as an add-on to a daily devotion. It is a reminder to slow down and smell the roses. We all know what it is like to be too busy to reach out and grasp the dreams that we once held dear.
The goal of the book is to help inspire you to seize and act on all kinds of creative dreams that we have ---- things from visiting the Holy Land (which I highly recommend), to donating blood or time at a soup kitchen, a reminder to learn to climb a tree or to take the time to help a child learn to read.
Every few "days" the book includes a list of recommended things to do. Most of them are no-brainers, but sometimes we just need the nudge and get going. One of the best was toward the end of the book in which there are a list of messages that we need to change in our lives.
The list of bucket items is divided both thematically and blended with Scripture.
I think that this book would be great for a graduate, newly married couple or just somebody who wants to get motivated once again.
