Same Kind of Different as Me

All I have to say is that you need to run (not walk, RUN) to your local bookstore and pick up this book. It is absolutely amazing and will make you laugh, cry and pray as you read this real life story about:

"A dangerous, homeless drifter who grew up picking cotton in virtual slavery. An upscale art dealer accustomed to the world of Armani and Chanel. A gutsy woman with a stubborn dream. A story so incredible no novelist would dare dream it."

It is one of those books I could not put down. It is a fast read (even for a slow reader like myself). It is truly a touching story and I literally do not have words to describe it. All I know and all I pray is that I can some how live a life like Mrs. Debbie's, and that I can somehow hear the Lord like Denver. The book was encouraging, uplifting and spiritually challenging. It opens your eyes to multiple facets of this world and is truly touching. 

Please email me  your thoughts after  you read it! 

P.S. It is set in Dallas/Ft. Worth and I will be out west for a wedding this September. I am hoping to tack on a few days to the trip to make a few stops at places talked about in the book. I am also praying about a few other things in relation to the book....I will share more on that later. 
Pin It Now!


  1. can I borrow your copy to read, please?

  2. I have heard great things about this book...I'm looking for some great/easy/fun/quick beach reads! Would this possibly make the tentative list??? :-)

  3. I've heard that's good and I plan on reading it once I get it from Half-Price books....

    BTW-we live in Dallas! If you make it out here let me know and we can meet ya for dinner!
