Moment Maker by Carlos Whittaker

Carlos Whittaker is a musician, a worship leader and a blogger, so he is a pretty popular presence on social media. 

In his book, he explains the Moment Making theory and method. He breaks it down into three basic approaches: Created Moments, Received Moments and Rescued Moments. Each of these approaches contains an introduction and some personal examples of each of those moments. His stories are motivational and funny.

I liked his enthusiastic and passionate take on life, the Moment Making theory and then the explanations that come later in the book. All these determine you to be intentional about your Moment Making journey and at the same time, they give you some tools for starting with some pragmatic steps.

I loved the book and I would recommend it to those who want to enjoy life every little moment at a time, to those who want to get the best out of it, and to those who want to:
Live with purpose and on purpose.

Currently reading...

I have received some goodies in the mail last week: Economics: The User's Guide by Ha-Joon Chang. I've won this book at a GoodReads giveaway a few weeks ago. Can't wait to finish it and write a few thoughts about it.

"As you set out on this journey of Moment Making you will discover that things rarely go according to plan, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. The most important thing is that the unexpected is actually a gift. It presents opportunities to take that moment you meant to make for someone else and allow God to put his spin on it. When you open yourselves to the new, you open yourselves to unforeseen possibilities. It's there, right there, that we find our ability to grow and explore!"
