More Than A Bucket List

More Than A Bucket List

By Toni Birdsong


This is a cozy sized hardback book that includes short one page devotionals or positive writings among the many lists that inhabit its pages.  List lovers will probably go crazy over this one.

My favorite parts were the devotionals that focused on God and the Real Life Challenges scattered throughout the book. 

For those unfamiliar with the term “bucket list”, it is intended to be a list of things you hope to do before you “kick the bucket”. 

To me, many of the writings and the lists of things to do were directed towards people who have been financially blessed.  It seemed to be written without consideration for the fact that some people may never have the means to enjoy traveling the world and fulfilling their every wish.  Not to say that all the lists were unrealistic.  But most focused on travel, expensive visits, expensive foods, expensive hobbies.

I still liked the book because it is full of lists …and I love lists.  My favorite part out of the whole book was the suggestion to make an “unbucket” list.   The author describes this as a list of things you have already done in life.  To me, this would bring more contentment than focusing on all I have NOT been able to do in life. 

I was given this book to review for free in exchange for an honest review, which I have provided here.
