The Buttefly Effect
Did you know the slightest ripple of action can alter the earth’s atmosphere on the other side of the globe?
But this book provides examples of actual events, small tokens of doing the right thing that have resulted in an outcome drastically different from what ‘it could have been’ had these individuals not stepped up to the plate and taken action that made a real difference.

I watched the first two seasons and then they changed their night, changed the time, and I fell off the bandwagon. I’m a single mom – I only have so much time and can only adjust so much of my schedule around television and no, I don’t own TiVo. So two more seasons went by, then three, and I became “lost” to what was going on; but still fondly referred to them as a fav TV show. And this year (their final season forever) I have started watching again.
A few months back I was able to pick a book to review from some recent releases from Thomas Nelson. And there it was. My book. The book that was written (READ MORE...)
