The Noticer

I am a noticer,” he said. “It is my gift. While others may be able to sing well or run fast, I notice things that other people overlook. And, you know, most of them are in plain sight.”

The Noticer, by Andy Andrews, is a wonderful and rewarding book. An elder man named Jones, whose character reminds me of Jesus, has the knack for showing up in a small Alabama town just when he is needed most. He notices things about situations and people that produce perspective for them. That’s what most folks lack—perspective—a broader view. So Jones helps them to see that broader view . . .”

An inspiring read, The Noticer, will stir and challenge its reader to contemplate what the effect would be in their community if they decided to notice and befriend fellow community members—especially those who look to be in need or those that others seem to avoid—without any thought for personal reward, on a regular basis.
