Alive and active campaign

I am big on gratitude. I make a deliberate conscious effort to stay grateful to God.
I thought about people like me who are swarmed with work load, chores, responsibilities etc,  that are living simple but honest lives. Those who seek the greater good, even those who do not yet know how to begin and are trying to find their footing.  This Campaign is my way of acknowledging God's mercy and grace. It is we saying "Thank you for loving us" despite all our wrong doing and lack of gratitude sometimes.
This is a simple and fun way to express our gratitude, simply put up your photo with the hashtag #ALIVEANDACTIVE  And take a moment to tell God how grateful you are for the gift of Live and another day to try again.

So far I've read just one out of the list... I know, 29 more to go; but I will do my best to read them all. Most of these books can be found as e-books online. So go ahead and search them out. 
Below are a list of over 30 books of unparalleled prose, packed with wisdom capable of igniting a new understanding of the world. Everyone should read these books before their 30th birthday.
