10 Day Without: Daring Adventures in Discomfort That Will Change Your World and You by Daniel Day is a conversationally toned book which introduces readers to a positive Christian lifestyle. It also helps readers develop knowledge of fundraising for those in need, and become closer with God. Christians often look for their purpose on earth. They may find themselves doing good deeds for others such as giving spare change to a homeless person, or donating money to an online charity. But many, after those deeds are done, just go on with their own lives, in their own comfort zones. Daniel Day tells readers of his experiences in wanting to do more than just give a little here and there. Daniel wanted to physically, mentally, and emotionally connect with those who he was trying to help. Thus, came 10 days without.
The author raises money for those in need by setting up a fundraiser and blogging about his experiences with each cause. For example, Daniel shares his experience going 10 days without a coat in hopes to raise money, and donations of coats for those in need within his hometown. Ever go 10 days without a coat in the dead of winter, 10 degrees or less outside? The author felt the need to physically feel what people without were going through and write about it in order to spread the word for extreme need for others to help with the cause. Another example is when the author went 10 days without shoes and vividly describes walking into restaurants, gas stations, office buildings, and out in the elements of weather, in order to allow readers to understand that people all over the world are in great need of pair of shoes and go without every day. The author not only found himself becoming closer with God during these experiences but he became closer with others who joined him each step of the way.
Daniel Day's 10 Days Without: Daring Adventures in Discomfort That Will Change Your World is an inspirational read that will truly change your life, and motivate you to do more with God and others in need. This book is a great read for readers of all ages.
