    I got this in the bargain section of Mardels It's reads like a Pinterest blog but converted to a book Nevertheless I found a few items that were motivational and picked up a few ideas for future bucket list type hobbies and activities It's a good book to browse through nothing too profound but not anything that I regret reading

    After being in the hospital for nine days in February I have read a few books this year on fulfilling dreams and making bucket lists I realized that while I have done so many things there are many adventures I still want to go on and many of them need to be planned So when I had the opportunity to review More Than a Bucket List I was excited because this is exactly the type of book I’ve enjoyed reading this yearThis is a smaller book it’s a suare hardcover and looks like a gift book There are 278 pages but pages 272 to 278 are blank lines allowing you to make your own bucket list of 49 items Personally I have than 49 items on my list and beyond that I like my list where I can see it and I keep it as a file in my computer Unlike other books in this genre I have read this one is decidedly Christian It gives suggestions such as “Go to a big tent revival Respond” and “Hold Communion once a month in your home with your family” I did like the emphasis on volunteering and community I haven’t seen that in many other books like this I have read The one thing that disappointed me with this book was there were some suggestions repeated I read it in two sittings so it was noticeable than if I used this book like I expect some people would picking it up and flipping through it and setting it on the shelf for a while I believe living debt free and writing a love letter to God were both repeated Both admirable both good but to me the point of this book was to get ideas of things to do and accomplish and I didn’t see the need for anything to be repeated Also a few things depend on others Growing old with the one you love is an example Sometimes you can’t depend on others What if you never find a person to grow old with When writing my bucket list I try to avoid adding items that depend on another person People change circumstances change and if you wrote in pen in this book you could have a sad reminder of what could have beenI did enjoy this book especially the author’s commentary about the things she has done from creating a family cookbook to her life in Germany The author’s comments were rare but they were my favorite part I also very much enjoyed her suggestion to create a “reverse bucket list” about things you have already accomplished I want to do this myself I’ve done some amazing things and it would be very fun to see them all in one placeIf you are creating a bucket list this is one book you’re sure to want to check out if you are a ChristianFTC disclosure I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a review This in no way influenced my opinion

    This cute little book is a collection of ideas recommendations and words of advice about things to put on your “bucket list” or things to do before you “kick the bucket” As soon as kids come along I think its easy to feel like adventures are a thing of the past I think specifically mothers are prone to feeling tethered to the routine of the daily grind and they forget that there are still millions of things to do as we each cross things off our bucket listsI found this book to be perfectly inspirational and motivating to go and do Just as the title suggests this book is than a list of things to cross off or merely bullet points of places to go and food to eat On nearly every page there is a new goal to aim for introduced with encouragement about why this idea is something you will want to achieve before you dieThis book was full of ideas both broad and specific One page would be titled “Reframe failure” or “Be a true contender” and then the next to “Bicycle through Provence” and “Plant something to celebrate” It was almost hard to focus because I got so excited with ideas My mind would go off on tangents of how and when and whereI appreciate that almost every other page had a religious or Christ centered idea or call to action which really helped keep a heavenly perspective on many of my dreams passions and goals that are and should be regarding my faith Some of my favorite items on my new bucket listTry every flavor on the Ben Jerry’s menuWrite out your testimony Have a long and a short versionCross the states by trainBuild a birdhouse and enjoy its visitorsStop being afraidKiss your sweetheart under a waterfall in HawaiiPan for goldLive with compassion Every page was like a mini devotional and a match ready to set fire 278 pages made it a thick little book one that you might want to pull out every night over the course of a few weeks All in one sitting might be too overwhelming Of course I recommend this as a super “go and do” kind of book If you’re like me you might close it and want to get straight to work on your own bucket list I think More Than a Bucket List would be great for a high school or college graduate gift or anyone looking for a little inspiration on what to do next

    When I first saw the book More Than A Bucket List of Toni Birdsong I was under the impression that it will be somewhat similar to 20000 Days and Counting that it will be about a call to action of doing some things that creates greater impact towards the people around you but so that it has the same compelling message of having a sense of urgency Well it is somewhat the same thinking about it now minus the sense of urgency I like that the book is broken down in little categories or one paged chapters Basically it is just a whole bunch of suggestion coming from the author on what items we could put on our own bucket list of things we want to accomplish in our lifetime The traveling itinerary is rather very lofty and may not be suitable for an average Joe with minimal dough hey that rhymes hehe There's just way to many items on the list Some were as simple as coming up with a resolution to exercise and sticking to it and doing some random acts of kindness and gratitude like picking up the check at a restaurant of a police officer or a fireman or visiting a former teacher who made a positive impact in your life and treating himher out to dinner which I actually intend to do sometime this year and some other really small acts of kindness that is bound to overwhelm the receiver in ways than one The only thing that boggles me about the book is if the author actually had to experience at least 34 of the items she wrote there it would have been much easier to relate to her had she mentioned which items were already ticked off her bucket list And I guess I wished she talked a little about her life because I kinda felt that the book was rather impersonal since she has not shared a lot of things about her life and what moved her to write the book Over all it's an OK book for me rather apt that I picked it up on the first month of the year

    Everyone dreams about places to see people to meet and things to do in their lifetime But too often we lose sight of those dreams and get buried in everyday busyness and demands More Than a Bucket List will inspire you to seize and act on a range of dreams—anything from visiting the Holy Land donating your time at a soup kitchen learning to climb a tree or helping a child learn to read The book also includes ideas to make lasting memories as you marvel at a new sight laugh like crazy with an old friend or change a lifeThe compilation of bucket list items is divided thematically and blended with Scripture and personal stories Pages at the back allow you to write your own bucket list items Are you ready to finish this life well and start checking off items from your bucket list After reading the description I knew I wanted to review More Than a Bucket List by Toni Birdsong Several years ago my sister and I each wrote our own “Bucket List” I was anxious to see if there would be anything in the book that I would add to my own list It didn’t take long for me to start adding to my list I have added Yellowstone National Park Washington’s San Juan Islands Big Sky Montana a family mission trip and panning for gold to my “Bucket List” I was surprised to see a few things found in More Than a Bucket List had already been crossed off my list the most recent one being seeing Mount RushWhile the book offered many things to see and do I especially enjoyed the Scripture references provided throughout I would highly recommend More Than a Bucket List to anyone looking to add fun and meaning to his or her life This book was provided through the Booksneeze program in exchange for an honest review

    I read More than a Bucket List in exchange for an honest review from BookSneeze The book was written by Toni Birdsong The book was published by Thomas Nelson I chose this book because I have so many dreams but I am not working hard on making them a reality The book started off good The first section discusses laughter God gave us the power of laughter Laughter can heal souls Birdsong encourages us to find friends clean comedies and other things which makes us laugh Then the next section focuses on living your dreams Write a book Go skydiving whatever it is Live your dreams The book also discusses honoring people for their strengths instead of their appearances stereotypes or personal prejudices Get to know people for who they are instead of who you think they are or who you want them to be Other suggestions in the book includeFighting for loveBeing a good samaritan Be merciful Help others who are going through something Practice being positive instead of negative Practice forgiveness Laugh Surround self with positive people Trust God in all things Practice Compassion Help others Volunteer Learn to uit uit cursing uit enabling others uit lying uit selfish behaviors uit living for others uit being late Stop comparing yourself to others The book provided good suggestions for creating a new bucket list for living The suggestions are based on love faith and forgiveness Not to mention developing a relationship with God At the end of the book for those who purchase the print edition there is a fill in the blanks bucket list I will definitely continue to peruse this book this year especially when I lack motivation

    I was hopeful this book would be something I'd hold onto and readily pass along but it's not I'm reviewing the Kindle version I actually think this book may be better as hardbackpaperback at times it seemed unorganized in pattern and layout The part I LOVED about this book is the faith based reading The few sections that dove deep into Scripture were nuggets I highlighted and found to be powerful But the rest was uite disappointing to me I felt like it was a lot of do this don't do that And the bucket lists were geared to those who are financially well off For those of us who are middle to low income there is no hope of completing MOST of the items on the suggested bucket lists In fact reading through them can be downright depressing I thought the don't use a credit card was repeated a little too often Overall the message seemed shallow None of the bucket list items seemed to take me deeper in my faith and make me a stronger person in Christ I felt like it was all about the experience here on earth with no focus on eternity which contradicts Jesus' teachings So this is what disappointed me about the book I wish the book would have been centered around a life in ChristDisclosure of Material Connection I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®com book review bloggers program I was not reuired to write a positive review The opinions I have expressed are my own I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR Part 255 Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising

    More Than a Bucket List is a short read but very inspirational Barrow took the Bucket List to a whole another level Everyone has heard of the Bucket Lista listing of things that you want to do before you transition into the afterlife However this list is a way to really look at what’s on your list and what you may want to put on your listI personally do not have a bucket list because I never really got the whole purpose behind it This book was written in a way that showed me how a Bucket List can be a way to organize the things that really mean the most to you and how you can accomplish some of those things while you have time After reading More than a Bucket List I will be compiling my own with great thought and consideration of the things that I really want to do with the rest of my time in my earthly vessel I recommend that anyone that does not have a Bucket List and would like a place to start thinking of what to put on that list to read this book first it brings a whole new meaning of the phrase “Bucket List” If you have a bucket list you might want to peek inside this book and see if your list really reflects the things that you really want to do Very Inspiring
