About the Book
Oh, the power of a story! No matter the setting, share a slice of time when a simple act results in a real life changed, and everyone listening will gladly leave their seats and step into the narrative.
Show Up is a collection of inspiring stories comprised of fourteen fast-paced chapters, each a self-contained and yet integral-to-the-whole essay. Readers meet people willing to step out of their own busyness or biases and into someone else’s world for a meaningful moment, a month, maybe much longer.
