Being empathetic in today’s world is not popular. Author, Lauren Casper shares how she learned to show more empathy. She provides different examples from her life from fostering to adoption, to listening to those of other ethnicities, to realizing how a rebuke from her younger years helped her gain more insight. Lauren also, includes different Bible stories that show empathy in action.
This book made me think of times I’ve been rebuked by family and how at the time it can raise your shackles, but looking back you can see their reasoning. It also, made me think of how by being raised in a certain community you may be biased to a particular viewpoint. Hearing views different from your own is an important step into learning how to be empathetic towards others who are different from you.
I received a complimentary digital copy of Loving Well In A Broken World by Lauren Casper from Thomas Nelson, care of TLC Book Tours and NetGalley. The views are mine and my choice to post. To grab a copy off Amazon and find out more about the author. This book is a good read, but if you aren’t a Christian there may be some Christianese verbiage to wade through.
