Synopsis: The runaway New York Times bestseller! Can a simple concept shift your entire world? Bob certainty thinks so. When it comes to loving your neighbors, rather than focusing on having the “right answers” or checking the “right boxes,” what if you decide to simply DO love? To shamelessly show love and grace to those around you? What would that look like? It might look like spending sixteen days in the Pacific Ocean with five guys and a crate of canned meat. It might look like taking your kids on a world tour to eat ice cream with heads of state. It might look like taking a road trip with a stressed-out college student–even though you just got married a few days before. In Love Does, Bob shows you how to live a fully engaged life; how to stop putting things off until “next time” and instead find your place of imagination, whimsy, and wonder today; and that God usually chooses ordinary people to get things done When love does, life gets interesting. Light and fun, unique and profound, the lessons drawn from Bob’s life and attitude in this collection of stories just might inspire you to be secretly incredible, too. If you love Love Does, don’t forget to check out Everybody, Always and Dream Big for more of Bob’s delightful and inspiring stories!

My perspective of this book!

I adore this book.  The author takes us through countless adventures showing love to others by saying Yes to every opportunity that is presented to him.  Some of these stories are down right crazy.  Many times these stories are endearing and sweet.  The stories encourage us to step out in faith and say Yes to all of what life has to offer us. The author shows us that following Jesus isn’t perfect but it is worth your life and makes an entertaining story or two.  All of our stories will be different but as long as we are trying to be love, we will be fulfilled.

My Favorite things about this book!

The author has an inviting story telling style.  At the end of many chapters I found myself laughing at the antics of Bob and his family.  I absolutely love how he calls his wife Sweet Maria.

If you like Love Does, you will love Bob Goff’s next book Everybody Always or Dream Big.
