The Hundred Story Home, Book Review

The Hundred Story Home by Kathy Izard 

Kathy Izard was a graphic designer, wife, mother of four daughters, and volunteer at Charlotte’s Urban Ministry Center when an unlikely meeting with formerly homeless author Denver Moore changed the course of her life. Inspired by Denver’s challenge to do more than serve in this soup kitchen, Kathy quit her job to take on what seemed like an unimaginable task in her second half of life—to build housing for Charlotte’s homeless. 
Woven together in this motivational story of a call to social action is Kathy’s personal journey to define the meaning of home and her own struggle with faith, family, and fulfillment. Reading this book will not only make you believe you can change the world, it will also end up changing you. 
"Kathy Izard tells two compelling stories in one: About her journey toward fulfilling her life's purpose and about Charlotte's journey to finally treating its chronically homeless with compassion and dignity. Each has twists and turns, each has a happy ending.” —Taylor Batten, Editorial Page Editor, The Charlotte Observer

My Thoughts: I was offered this book by the publisher so I could review it, and I was immediately drawn to the beautiful cover (yes I know the saying not to judge a book by it's cover). What was inside was even better. This is an honest autobiography about personal grown and success of a professional, who found themselves lacking purpose. Her transformation is inspiring and amazing. A great read for anyone going through a spiritual crisis.
