reading: 10 Days Without

I live a life full of good intentions. Ask my wife, my boss, my employees. They’ll tell you.

Good intentions are cans of paint that could have become amazing works of art… but never did.” – Daniel Ryan Day in 10 Days Without

Daniel Day documents his stories of literally putting himself in others’ shoes (or going without shoes) to experience life outside of his own comfort zone, to change his world and himself. He took the Bible verse James 2:17 – “faith without works is dead” – and challenged himself with it, and does the same for his readers.

Each chapter not only catalogs his own story, whether it’s going 10 days without speech, shoes, or human touch (to name just three), but each chapter also presents challenges to us, encouraging us to do the same. To join him in this quest for discomfort, to experience life outside of our modern creature comforts. Daniel invites us to create a plan for how we’ll do these things, and why we do them.

Ten days without furniture may not seem like a big deal. But, as Daniel discovers, it can change the world, at least one person at a time.
