How far would you go to Bekindr? Kindness is vital to our relationships and health. It uplifts us and makes us more optimistic about humanity. Bekindr is filled with 64 stories of how people from across the United States and three other countries whose lives were changed by the kindness of strangers. Bekindr also features the author’s research into the science of kindness, her actionable top tips to help you to Bekindr, and dozens of inspirational quotes. Bekindr was inspired by the author’s father, who was the beneficiary of awe-inspiring kindness: He received a heart transplant. The book features heart-warming, soul-filling stories, such as:
• A remarkable love story that emerged out of the darkest of times
• A love story that’s so unusual it became the subject of a Broadway show
Bekindr was created by the nation’s premier kindness expert to help you cultivate your best life―a life overfilling with kindness!
