Everyone knows that all it takes to start a fire is one small spark. Within each of us is the power to meaningfully change our world by unleashing this spark, or creative idea. This book shows readers how to increase their creativity for maximum influence. And all thatís needed is one idea for the world to be forever changed.

That may sound pretty astonishing, but the author backs up his words by allowing readers to follow the formation of, which is one of Americaís largest online citizen action networks.

He clearly shows the results of taking a creative idea to the finish line of success.

The lessons in this book are written with a powerful voice that will both direct and encourage everyone. The author makes this concept a realistic goal that can be attained with some diligence and practical planning. There is a definite excitement within these pages, which will grow into a desire to emulate the example of Steve Elliott.

Whether people will start their grassfires in their own homes or across the globe, everyone will benefit from this book. Our God is known as the Creator, and the author reminds believers that the spark of creativity is inherent in each one of us. These pages are highly combustible and are only waiting for a spark from every reader to get some more grassfires started! -- Joyce Handzo, Christian Book
