Same Kind of Different as Me by Ron Hart and Denver Moore is one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. The book runs through the lives of two very different men that are brought together by Ron’s wife, Deborah. This is a true story and is a wonderful read.
Denver Moore is a homeless man that lives on the streets of Ft. Worth, Texas. He grew up in Red River Parish, Louisiana working as a share cropper and living day to day, working for the Man. Ron Hart happened upon a career selling famous artwork and begins to do charity work with his wife after a marital mishap. The two men meet because of a dream that Debbie has and from this dream unfolds a story about how powerful God is in our lives.
My favorite line from the book is, “We woke up.” It references a homeless man in the story that everyday, he is grateful just because he woke up. This story makes you realize that we are all the same, and that we can learn a lot from each other. I was humbled by Denver. He has an amazing connection to God and his faithfulness makes you really believe that there is someone out there watching over us. I highly recommend this book.
