    "What can I do?"

    That was the question Diane Latiker asked herself as she watched the teens in her Chicago neighborhood succumb at an alarming rate to gangs and gun violence. Her answer started small, as she invited ten kids into her living room to talk about their struggles and dreams. But over the years it grew. With the help of God, her family, and many others along the way, Diane's Kids Off the Block morphed from a personal crusade in her community into a nationally known program that has helped more than three thousand at-risk Chicago teens.

    In this powerful, energizing book, she tells her incredible story to those of us who are sick of sitting behind our keyboards watching the world crumble and are ready to do something to make a difference. Through doubt, financial strain, and deep grief over lives lost, Diane has never wavered in her faith that God called her to this life-transforming work. In these pages she'll show you that God is calling you to do something too.

    Maybe something that feels small . . . definitely something that will change the world.
