Ripple Effects: Discover the Miraculous Motivating Power of a Woman’s Influence
Pam Tebow’s latest book “Ripple Effects” was an inspiring book that will remind you of the power of prayer and how not to give up even when circumstances are not going as you planned.
“Pam believes that every one of us can be influential—and that deep within a woman’s heart is the desire to use her influence for good. InRipple Effects, Pam uncovers and explores the miraculous motivating power of influence we can have on this generation and the next, no matter where we are planted in life. Whether we are in the midst of endless diaper changes, climbing up the corporate ladder, or simply doing our best to live, love, and serve well each day, Pam will encourage us to maximize our God-given opportunities for influence—and watch how far the ripples will spread.”
I especially loved each personal story Pam shared and how she kindly yet boldly reminds the reader that God hears and answers our prayers, even if we find ourselves in a place of doubt. She covers topics ranging from mastering your mindset, making prayer a priority to the power of your words.
My favorite thing she shared was the this poem by Edgar Guest, which she would often recite to her now famous son Tim Tebow.
There are little eyes upon you, and they’re watching night and day;
There are little ears that quickly take in every word you say;
There are little hands all eager to do everything you do,
And a little boy that’s dreaming of the day he’ll be like you.
You’re the little fellow’s idol, you’re the wisest of the wise;
In his little mind about you no suspicions ever rise;
He believes in you devoutly, holds that all you say and do
He will say and do in your way when he’s grown up just like you.
Oh, it sometimes makes me shudder when I hear my boy repeat
Some careless phrase I’ve uttered in the language of the street;
And it sets my heart to grieving when some little fault I see
And I know beyond all doubting that he picked it up from me.
There’s a wide-eyed little fellow who believes you’re always right,
And his ears are always open and he watches day and night;
You are setting an example every day in all you do
For the little boy who’s waiting to grow up to be like you.
