    The Moment of LiftI cannot say enough good things about this book She is saying, advocating and calling to action with words that are persuasive to me and are hitting me right in the heart Read this book.

    The I read, the I got into the book Chapters 5 and 9 are my favorite ones In Chapter 5, I loved reading about Melinda s personal story with Bill and showed me what an equal partnership really means Chapter 9 wraps up the book beautifully with much wisdom about people living in the margins and how we should face the pain and instead create a world of inclusion.Below are the book passages that I took note of on OneNote, as I was reading the book.Pg 149
