It is Easy! Feb 9, 2004
This book is a great follow up for your New Years Resolutions. Jahner-Byrne outlines in a simplistic and engaging manner the "how to's" of volunteering and getting involved in LIFE! She redefines failure as success turned inside out.
In the volunteer victories section I was interested in her choices of story lines. The three individuals profiled come from different walks of life and offer a different reason for becoming involved in their communities. It is a gentle reminder to get involved in our own community and become richer for it.
This is an easy read. It's so very nice to read an inspiration book that helps us in our civic and professional lives. Get a head in your business, personal life, professional and volunteer work. If you need resources the write offers many in the last section along with websites. I thought this was a terrific read.
New Year's Resolution Jan 1, 2003
This was a Christmas present that will be used today and in 2003. I have many years experience from Cub Scouts to community theatre. I didn't realize some of the volunteer organizations that are out there.
As I sit down today to write my thoughts about what I would like to do in 2003 I was given several inspiring hints where to go for advice. The websites listed in the book made it so easy to get started. Idealist.org is terrific and one I wouldn't have known about without this book.
This is an area of my life that has been missing. We can learn from Volunteer for Life! I did.
A good book to read and pass along. Jan 1, 2003
The book is simple and written for all ages. I would have liked to have read more about the author's exciting experiences and the not-so-exciting volunteer adventures. The reference section has many ideas for a start in your own community no matter what your interests are.
Achieve!! Feb 16, 2002
What a great story! How inspirational! Kelly's book is so simple as is her story. A winner never quits. Having had the opportunity to see this author speak for a volunteer group and now get the book...that's winning combination.
Winning! Sep 21, 2001
Volunteer for Life is a neat book. I was at an event recently where the author spoke about achieving goals. The book reveals a goal setting exercise that's helpful. She is an eloquent speaker with a message that is timely! The book is interesting, fun and thought provoking as well as helpful in finding a match for a new volunteer organization to apply your time. I was pleasantly reminded that volunteering SHOULD be fun and CAN be truly rewarding. I will use the reference guide to find a new opportunity to serve my community. We could all use a little more service in our lives and our communities will benefit!
