Book Review-'You Were Made to Make a Difference'

I was recently provided a copy of 'You Were Made to Make a Difference' by Max Lucado and Jenna Lucado Bishop to read and review.  Max Lucado is a well-known author, and this is co-written with his married, young-adult daughter.  The book is aimed at the teenage population, to inspire them to make a difference in their community, but I could see any adult getting knowledge and inspiration from reading it. I enjoyed the style of this book. It is not overwhelming in size, a fairly quick read.  Many different fonts are used throughout, which would keep a teen's attention.  The sections are written by and labeled 'Max' and 'Jenna', which is great to get both of their perspectives.  There are cute illustrations, photos, and blank sections to answer questions asked. At the end of each chapter is a prayer. There are many true stories and analogies in 'You Were Made to Make a Difference', and frequent scripture references.  This book convinces kids that they CAN make a difference, even now before they are adults.  It encourages them to start in their own community, with small acts of kindness.  I really enjoyed this book, and I'm looking forward to having my kids read it!  I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
