Summary: Do you find yourself chasing “something more”? We are people seized by longings we can’t seem to satisfy. It’s built into us—in our very bones. We were created with an innate desire to be a part of a world and a story bigger than ours. Sadly, however, most of us spend our lives blind to the fact that this story and this world are right in front of us, beckoning to us to come and play our part. We keep on with our focused, relentless pursuit of everything else and find ourselves dissatisfied. In Do Something Beautiful, York Moore shows you how to:
reframe your own story and begin seeing God’s story breaking into your life in the everyday moments, leave behind mediocrity and be a part of that beautiful story, and make your life count for something that matters.
Don’t give up on your “something more.” Chase it better.

This book was unusual in that it isn’t written like most books. Every chapter something new is introduced but than that concept is tied back in to the ones before it. Words such as beauty, righteousness, bounty, embrace and sacrifice are discussed.

Honestly the beginning was a bit slower than the last half of the book but overall it was a good read and it gave me lots to think about.  I especially liked the stories from the author’s life, especially the story of his daughter Gabby and how God brought her to his life, it’s an amazing story.

If you want to read more about evangelism and how you can make a difference by sharing Jesus with others and treating others as Jesus would have, then you want to read this book. That’s what it’s mostly about.

The book was full of great quotes too but my favourite is:

“Worship is the right response to beauty. The proper response to all beauty is to worship the source of the beauty, not the sub-expressions of beauty. We shouldn’t worship the sun, but the source of the sun’s fire. We shouldn’t worship the snow, but He who spun it into being.” – pg 88-89
