Everybody can help somebody--even "you"
""I used to spend a lotta time worryin' ""that I was different from other people . . ."
"But I found out everybody's different--""the same kind of different as me.""
Little Denver grew up very poor, and he didn't get to go to school. As time passed, Denver decided to hop a train to the big city for a different life. But that life was difficult, and Denver spent many years as a homeless man. But God showed His love through two people who were very different from Denver.
Based on "Same Kind of Different As Me," the emotional tale of Denver Moore's life story, this unique children's book includes Denver's original art. Parents and children alike will be moved by this powerful story and will never forget the unexpected and life-changing things that can happen when we help somebody.
""Nobody can help everybody, but everybody can help somebody.""""
