What would the world be like if everyone took the time to be kind to each other? That’s the world Candace Cameron Bure is trying to help create through her advice in Kind Is the New Classy. Most of her ideas are obvious, but sometimes we need a little reminder. This book is very religious, filled with scripture quotes to back up what she is saying and why she is saying it. It’s very conversational, like two girlfriends having a chat about how to make the world better starting with themselves. She makes a lot of really great points. She is also very honest. She’s willing to describe times when she failed in being kind and what she learned from that failure and how she tried to make it better when she recognized what she had done wrong. It’s sprinkled with little tidbits here and there about her time on The View, Fuller House, and her personal life in general. If everyone truly implemented even just what one chapter of what this book describes doing, world suck would decrease exponentially. I bought the book as soon as it came out over a year ago, but for some reason I didn’t read it until now. As I read, I felt like God was telling me that I was reading it at the exact right time because of what I am doing right in the kindness arena and also what I need to work on that I now feel motivated to do thanks to Candace’s words and my current receptivity to them. I very highly recommend this book to all religious women who want to help make this world just a little bit better.
