The Kindness Challenge: Thirty Days to Improve Any Relationship, by Shaunti Feldhahn, presents a marvelous plan for improving any type of relationship. It proves helpful with spouses, coworkers, children, friends, in-laws, and more.
The book presents three main steps to taking the Kindness Challenge. For thirty days, one should do the following three things: Say nothing negative to the other person or about them to anyone else, find one positive thing that you can sincerely praise or affirm about them and tell them and one other person, and do a small act of kindness or generosity for your person daily. The author proceeds to offer specific ways to be kind, something people often think that they know but truly do not. Some of these are: perform small acts of service, give or share something precious, don’t respond in kind, focus attention on the other person and be approachable, be fully present in their world, and assume the best. The book ends with specific plans for husbands or wives to use with their spouses.
This book was well-written and would be useful for anyone attempting to improve relationships with someone else.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
