Same Kind Of Different As Me Book
Ron Hall and Denver Moore
While every person has different upbringings and varying circumstances, nearly every person has this one thing in common: What you go through, and how you go through it, can lead to massive changes in your life.
In this true story, author, Denver Moore, tells of his upbringing as a sharecropper on a plantation and a divine connection to co-author, Ron Hall, at a shelter while being homeless. Through their “chance” encounter, they began to realize they had the opportunity to change each others lives as well as the lives of countless others for the better.
This timeless book is an incredible lesson for life...What you go through in life can and will absolutely change you, the question is will you allow it to change you for the better?
Embracing change and living life!
On the other side of change, we often forget who we once were and what we once experienced. And even if we remember, we don’t always remember in great detail.
This is where a simple tool (and practice) like a journal can come in handy and make a big difference. As you navigate change in your life, you’ll want to remember the changes that are taking place, the feelings you experience as you go through change, and the impact the change has on your life.
Make it a practice to write a few short entries each week detailing fears, doubts, hopes, celebrations, and dreams. Then, 30 days later, make it a habit to go back and re-read what you’ve written to see how far you’ve come. This simple practice will empower you to embrace change and live the life God has called you to.
Helping other through trying times.

Tracking Your Spiritual Progress
As you fill out each section of the Spiritual Inventory, consider how God is challenging you to grow in the area of connection. Take into account where you are, how far you’ve come, and where God is leading you. But don’t worry; this isn’t a test to see if you’re perfect. The Spiritual Inventory is designed to engage you creatively, thoughtfully, and in a fun way! Be encouraged by where you feel strong, and take note of where you can grow.
