Be the Sunshine: A Celebrate Lit Tour

About the Book

Book: Be The Sunshine Author: Sunshine Rodgers Genre: Christian Nonfiction Release Date: August 26, 2022

The one difficulty with having the name Sunshine is that people expect me to be…. well, sunshine all the time.

I have learned over time to embrace the Sunshine-ness that is my name. Yes, I may not always be joyful or exuberant all the time, but I have learned that if I rely on my friends, my family, and my faith, I can conquer each day head-on and live every moment with an expectation of goodness.

And that’s what I wanted to share in this book, Be The Sunshine. It’s not a book about how to be happy or seven ways to stay positive. These pages are about being yourself, showing the world your true colors, and being mindful of the moment. These chapters contain personal stories so that we all can experience love and joy for ourselves as well as shining that light on those around us!

So, just follow my voice. When it comes to being the sunshine, well, I know the way!

More from Sunshine

Be The Sunshine is a 5-Part message about spreading love and kindness out into the world.

Part 1 is about Acting in Kindness (how to serve, share peace and offer forgiveness).

Part 2 is about Shouting Goodness (building up the body of Christ and emphasizing Church Unity).

Part 3 is about holding A Fresh Perspective (standing on God’s Promises and focusing on blessing others).

Part 4 is about The Power of Love (loving God, loving your neighbor, loving yourself)

Part 5 answers the question “Why do we not help?” (the excuses we make and the fears we create)

87 Bible verses were used representing 9 different Translations for clarity, easy to understand passages and relatable terminology. I interviewed 6 Christian leaders and mentors who add their personal testimonies to this piece.

My Review

“Look for ways to be an inspiration to others. Become the best version of yourself so that you can help other people be the best version of themselves. If you talk about how you volunteer at soup kitchens or how you attend a Bible study and set prayer times each morning, your passion and faith will fan the flame to those who hear it.”

With a name like Sunshine, how could one ever be crabby? Sunshine Rodgers had to come to terms with the fact that she did not always have to live up to her name. But she also realized that her name could inspire her to make a difference in the lives of others. She wants to use her platform to be a blessing.

I appreciated the abundance of verses that are included in this book. It is clear that the author looks to the Bible for wisdom. She wants to point people to Jesus.

This book is full of encouraging thoughts. Sunshine wants to use her experiences to motivate others to also make a difference. Her positivity flows off the pages. Occasionally she came off a bit like a hyper cheerleader, but there is not doubt that is an optimistic person.

Sunshine decided to use her book as a way to highlight life experiences of her friends as well. She interviews several people and asks for their perspectives on her chapter themes. While I appreciate the fact that she wanted to honor others that she admires, their input was not quite as meaningful for me since I do not know them personally.

Overall, the book is encouraging and full of positive content. If you are looking for inspiration, this book could provide it. I was given an advanced copy of this book for a tour. All opinions expressed in this review are my own.
