The Moment of Lift by Melinda Gates


Flatiron Books, 2019

A Non-Fiction pick by Wendy

I thoroughly enjoyed the empathy Melinda’ s writing stirred in me.  I felt motivated by her personal stories and how we all can feel connected and that we belong.  Melinda Gates shared specific ways to empower women, yet she was real and made me feel like we were sitting on her sofa for a conversation.  The story about Anna (who the author stayed with in Tanzania) has made such an impression on my heart that I keep returning to reread it.  It prompted me to listen more and realize that I too need to change.

I don’t want you to miss out!
