The most healing thing a lonely, lost, or just plain bored person can do is place the concerns of another human being above their own.
Denver, CO, January 11, 2011 -- The most healing thing a lonely, lost, or just plain bored person can do is place the concerns of another human being above their own. It’s almost selfish in its effectiveness. MORE Than me: Step Out of Yourself and Into Humanity, written by Denver husband-and-wife team Eric L. Mott and Kelly Jo Eldredge, puts a refreshing spin on volunteerism and simple good deeds.
MORE Than me: Step Out of Yourself and Into Humanity reveals stories from all over the world of ordinary people—and several celebrities—reaching out to help others and in turn experiencing beautiful and unexpected changes of their own.
The authors of this book discovered the transformative power of volunteerism. Once they experienced its benefits, they began to collect similar stories like precious stones. Each one affirmed their growing belief in the sheer power of “we” rather than “me.” Lives were completely transformed simply by helping someone else who was in need.
The truth behind this outstanding collection is that the uncomplicated act of helping someone else helps the giver in very significant ways. It becomes a makeover from the inside out. Reaching a hand out to someone in need, whether through organized volunteer activities or simple good deeds, feels great. It immediately increases confidence—and it might also decrease worry lines.
MORE Than me will inspire readers to stand up and volunteer for a unique and lasting transformation that starts with an outstretched hand.
ABOUT 4 Cats, Ink - The 4 Cats, Ink story began when Kelly and Eric, met, fell in love, married, and discovered their mutual love of writing. Their biggest challenge involved introducing Eric's two cats, Kyle and Maggie, to Kelly Jo's two cats, Yin and Yang. After much yowling, posturing, and raised hackles, they have reached a state of truce, if not downright affection. The cats learned to get along, too.
