As a “soccer mom” turned activist, Moore has watched her life take a turn she never expected. Full-time homemaker and mother of three, the author lived in suburbia when she felt God moving her to educate herself and those within her sphere of influence about worldwide illness, hunger, poverty, and abuses against women and children. What Moore never expected was that she would become a noncelebrity spokesperson for the Campaign to Make Poverty History and would rub shoulders with the likes of Bono, George Clooney, and Julia Roberts. Moore describes her journeys to other countries in vivid and heartbreaking detail. While the worldwide need can appear overwhelming, this caring mom shows by example the way to making individual powerful choices to alleviate suffering, no matter where it finds its home. Moore offers the resources for getting educated and getting involved in this no-excuses primer on changing the world one small step at a time. (Feb.)
