Goodness Abounds: 365 True Stories of Loving Kindness

In this #1 bestseller in multiple Amazon categories, over 275 authors shared true stories of generosity and loving-kindness to help turn up your "Goodness Radar." Whenever I have a low day, I can flip to any page and find a story to lift my spirit and restore my faith in humanity. I contributed three stories to the book about a Japanese nurse, my 6th-grade teacher, and a talking cat!

Scroll down to hear the stories I contributed. I bet you can relate to one if not all of them.

30 Minutes and a Blue Bucket

In 2012, I spent 3 weeks in the hospital for hip replacement surgery. Remembering the kind nurse who helped me one day still brings me to tears. I feel so much gratitude for all the nurses out there healing hearts.

Mr. Mickelson's Tall Girl

At 5'11" (179 cm), I'm considered a tall woman even in the U.S. where I was raised. My 6th-grade year became a whole lot easier by the surprising way my teacher helped me boost my self-confidence and embrace my height.

People Are a Problem

A walk along the river and a quiet conversation with an unlikely teacher renewed my faith in the goodness of people.

How can I get the book?

If you enjoyed my three stories, I encourage you to get the book. It's full of stories from communities who came together for a worthy cause, help from complete strangers, and family and friends making a positive difference. Goodness Abounds and the other four books in the 365 Book Series are available on Amazon.

The creators of the 365 Series, Jodi Chapman, and Dan Teck donate 5% of all profits from sales of their books to the Jane Goodall Institute.
