Discriminate in your reading–plant seeds of hope

All reading is not created equal. Discriminate. Find reading material that is hope-giving, uplifting, challenging, and healing. Read books that fill up your heart with love, compassion, and understanding, not books that trash your heart.

Everything you read puts a seed in your mind. Plant seeds of love and hope, not seeds of anger and despair.

Train yourself to read something inspiring and healing, everyday. An uplifting book will blow the dust off your heart and help you see life more clearly and joyfully.

If you’re ever discouraged about your life, reading Off the Race Track will give you a new perspective and make you feel fortunate. Try it and see.

Have you ever wondered (even a little bit) how race became such a big deal in America? To criticize black history when you’ve never even read a book about it is like criticizing a food you’ve never tasted.

Read about my haircut from Oprah’s dad, in chapter 1 of Off the Race Track–From Color-Blind To Color-Kind. Find it at this link. Here’s a picture of the back cover.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
