About the Book

This is a book that honors and celebrates the compassion of people who serve the needs of others in very positive, meaningful, and sometimes, life changing ways. Why do people who serve others open their hearts so freely? This book features sixteen stories of everyday, ordinary people who have become truly extraordinary by helping others. These people have extended themselves by helping vulnerable people in need not for glamour or glory but because they simply observed hurt and pain and felt compelled to take positive action. In this book, the experiences, events and circumstances of their lives are examined through the lens of Appreciative Inquiry-a strength based perspective that focuses our attention on the conditions and factors that enable us to act at our very best.

Learn how you can use the process of 'Appreciative Life Reflection' to examine the Noble Path of your own life with all of its twists and turns and apply what you learn to the discovery of your Noble Purpose-Serving the Needs of Others.
