The Hundred Story Home: A Memoir of Finding Faith in Ourselves and Something Bigger by Kathy Izard
What if you just trusted the whisper of calling placed on your heart?
Kathy Izard was volunteering at Charlotte's Urban Ministry Center when an unlikely meeting with a homeless man changed the course of her life. She realized that serving at the soup kitchen was feeding her soul, but not actually solving the needs of the homeless population.
Rather than brush it off and avoid what she now felt called to take on, she quit her job and took on what seemed like an insurmountable task--building housing for Charlotte's homeless.
Woven together with this uplifting story of social action is Kathy's personal struggle with faith, forgiveness and fulfillment. In telling her story, Kathy invites you to consider rewriting your own.
What's calling you? As crazy at it seems, it may be crazier not to try. This book will push you to do so much more than you ever thought possible.
