Bob Goff’s “Everybody, Always” isn’t just a book; it’s an experience. It’s a warm hug from a friend, a jolt of inspiration, and a gentle nudge towards a life lived with more love, more laughter, and more of that beautiful, messy authenticity we all crave.

Bob’s writing is captivating. He weaves personal anecdotes, hilarious mishaps, and profound insights with the skill of a master storyteller. You’ll find yourself laughing out loud one minute and wiping away tears the next, wholly engrossed in his infectious enthusiasm.

He doesn’t shy away from sharing his hilarious misadventures, from skydiving shoe-less to befriending Ugandan witch doctors. Each anecdote becomes a stepping stone, leading you closer to the core message: love everybody, always.

Bob acknowledges the challenges, the setbacks, and the “difficult people” that make loving everyone seem impossible. But with his trademark wit and wisdom, he offers practical tools and real-life examples to show how even the most minor acts of love can ripple outwards, creating waves of change in our lives and the world around us.

Favorite Quotes

People who turn into love don’t keep track anymore. They don’t memorize the good or bad they or anyone else have done. They memorize grace instead.

Maybe God isn’t speaking because he’s confident we already have all the information we already need. He’s allowed us to experience a lifetime of other things to prepare us for what’s coming next.

Perhaps we don’t get all the answers and confirmations we ask for because God loves seeing us grow.

It’s given me a lot of comfort knowing we’re all rough drafts of the people we’re still becoming.

I think Jesus meant something different when He said “enemies.” He meant we should love the people we don’t understand. The ones we disagree with. The ones who are flat wrong about more than a couple of things. I have plenty of those people in my life, and my bet is you do, too.

Love isn’t something we fall into; love is someone we become

“Don’t wait to join a movement. A movement is just a bunch of people making moves. Be a movement. Figure out what your next move is going to be, then make it. No one is remembered for what they only planned to do.

The promise of love and grace in our lives is this: Our worst day isn’t bad enough, and our best day isn’t good enough. We’re invited because we’re loved, not because we earned it

“He wants us to love everybody, always—and start with the people who creep us out. The truth is, we probably creep them out as much as they do us.

Loving people the way Jesus did means living a life filled with constant interruptions. Take the calls. Interrupt your days. Be excessively available, and you’ll be just like Jesus.

If you’re looking for a book that will uplift your spirit, challenge your perspective, and inspire you to live a more loving life, then “Everybody, Always” is a must-read. It’s a ray of sunshine in a world that often feels dark, a reminder that love truly can conquer all.

Bonus: If you still need convincing, consider this: the book is so good, it might even make you want to go skydiving (with shoes, of course!).
