Book Review: How To Love Your Neighbor Without Being Weird

How To Love Your Neighbor Without Being Weird
By Amy Lively

When I first received this book I wasn't too sure about it. I mean, how much interesting information can there be about going out and meeting your neighbors?

Then I read this book!

There is a wealth of knowledge and advice in this book. It is the kind of book you will want to keep handy so you can refer back to it for encouragement.

So many neighborhoods are filled with people who don't know each other. Not even the people living right next door to them.

Jesus commands us to love our neighbors. This book gives you the support to do that. Yes, it is scary to put yourself out there. But what if someone in your neighborhood needs you? What if you need them too, but you'll never know because you never knocked on their door and said hello? Don't wait for a disaster to strike to meet your neighbors. Believe me, I have been there!

We are missing out on serving and obeying because we lock ourselves away in our houses.

Are we all not starving for fellowship? I know I am all the time. How amazing would it be to have women living around you to have that fellowship with? It would be a huge blessing!

I highly recommend this book as a tool to reach out and minister.

I was given a free copy of this book from Bethany House for my honest opinion.

I'm all for letting everyone have their privacy, being such a private person myself. And one of the reasons I love about living in my current home is that I don't have to socialize with the neighbours, I don't know their names etc. LOL But what is so hard in saying "hi"?? Even a nod would do for me. All of the neighbours that I have actually chatted with seem very nice, so maybe the others are just shy as they don't seem not-nice either??
