We are starting a new addition on our blog. We will be posting a Book of the Month each month! We hope these books inspire you and build you up just as much as they have us.
December’s Book of the Month is “Kind Is the New Classy: The Power of Living Graciously” by Candace Cameron Bure
Carla mentioned this book to us a few weeks ago and she has loved it so far! This book is about more than just being nice to people and moving along with your day. Kindness is a lifestyle choice, one that has many benefits to everyone involved when used to its full extent. Kindness isn't only about being kind to others; it's also about being kind to yourself and once you do that, showing kindness will come more naturally to you.
The following is the description of the book on amazon
As a woman in today’s world, you know what it’s like to feel pressure on all sides from clashing cultural expectations. How can you stay true to who God has uniquely created you to be in the face of the script you’ve been given? What’s more, how can you stand your ground with grace?
The classy confidence you know and love—whether it’s on set at Full House or Fuller House, Dancing with the Stars, The View, or Candace’s Hallmark films—is no act. But it hasn’t come easy. In fact, learning to stay true to herself with grace has been one of the biggest fights of Candace’s life.
The secret, she has learned, is kindness: it’s classy, unexpected, even counter-cultural, and ultimately wins the day.
In Kind Is the New Classy, Candace reveals the thought patterns and practices that have empowered her to stay centered in who she is while practicing radical graciousness toward others. Whether you’re navigating major life choices, questions of calling and career, relationships, or personal goals, this book will show you how to:
Keep your cool under pressure
Respond to criticism with grace
Stay grounded yet go places in life
Stay true to who you are despite the expectations of others
Stay centered in what ultimately matters the most
