The Hundred Story Home: A Memoir of Finding Faith in Ourselves and Something Bigger
Kathy Izard was a graphic designer, wife, mother of four daughters, and volunteer at Charlotte’s Urban Ministry Center when an unlikely meeting with formerly homeless author Denver Moore changed the course of her life. Inspired by Denver’s challenge to do more than serve in this soup kitchen, Kathy quit her job to take on what seemed like an unimaginable task in her second half of life—to build housing for Charlotte’s homeless.
Woven together in this motivational story of a call to social action is Kathy’s personal journey to define the meaning of home and her own struggle with faith, family, and fulfillment. Reading this book will not only make you believe you can change the world, it will also end up changing you.
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's review- A story, a time and a challenge- not to get through without feeling a connection to the author. The writing style is heartfelt and pure, with so much to offer as far as inspiration and take aways. You could read a chapter quickly but then think about it for days. I am so glad there are such good hearts in this world and that the author was able to open up and share her ups and downs in a way that is not boring or overly done. To Kathy if you read this review, I need to say thank you for helping what society sometimes feels wasted and unloved people and reminding my spirit to be more humble.
