This book will teach you in plain language how you can bring a "cup of cool water" to soothe the parched lips and revive a person who is dying of heartache thirst.  And, if you will let it, it will lead you into the greatest adventures of your life as you follow God's command to care about the people around you.  Look at the Contents, but please understand this--the real book is much tidier than the Contents list below.  I know how to write a book; I'm not a website designer!

The book is paperback, 6 x 9, 252 pages, with 2 CDs.
