Do Good. Love Well. Kathy Izard grew up believing in this family wisdom. And although she had abandoned her faith years ago, she was proud to serve regularly in her community's soup kitchen. Then an unexpected encounter with the formerly homeless and bestselling coauthor Denver Moore made her realize that though she thought she was doing good, serving soup was not enough.
Following an insistent whisper, Kathy quit her job as a graphic designer and began to do what seemed unimaginable: build a home for Charlotte's homeless. Kathy was a mother of four, in the second half of her life, and the task didn't make any sense, yet it proved to be her first step in finding her own way home.
In The Hundred Story Home, Kathy invites us to live out our own stories more fully. "Do you ever have the feeling that what you are doing isn't what you are supposed to be doing? I wrote The Hundred Story Home not to convince you to solve homelessness in your community but to help you solve the homelessness in you." This beautiful memoir reminds us that not only can we help change the world, but in doing so we change ourselves
