For five days, beginning on June 06, 2014, I held a contest on my professional Facebook page. Each day I gave away a signed copy of my book The Door to Heaven to randomly selected individuals who commented on each contest’s one rule. On day one, contestants had to comment on the best compliment anyone had ever given them. Day two, contestants had to comment about the best day they had ever had. Day three, contestants had to comment about what happened on the best day they had ever had. Day four, contestants had to comment about the most beautiful thing they had ever seen. Day five, contestants had to comment about the best advice anyone had ever given them.
The comments were so many and so wonderful that I decided to compile them into this little book, which I am giving away for free. This book is meant to be read as a book of hope, to anyone in doubt of goodness in the world. Each comment by each person is a witness to the goodness that other people have done for them; a witness to the surprising way life helps us make one more step forward, just to get through one more day.
May this book help you too. May it be a sign to you that no matter how fearful you might feel, no matter how you might feel weak with weeping and worry, something good might be right around the bend, waiting for you. May the words in this book fill you with hope.
