Challenge, comfort and hope.
on 7 October 2001
This book offers a reading to reflect and meditate upon, for every day of the year.
The author writes from personal experience and,with knowledge of the world and how people relate to it and each other, she encourages and challenges us to examine who we are as individuals and how we live, think and work.
We are offered the opportunity to grow in our spiritual thinking and in our lives, and can also begin to become more disciplined in setting time aside for ourselves. Space for stopping and reflecting is important in this world where we rush around, living life at break-neck speed.
This book certainly encourages us to love ourselves more, respect others and learn to have a fullness of life, which many struggle to find and some never do.
The language Melody Beattie uses is rich, yet easy to read. She writes with relevence for today and has the skill and gift to make each reading personal.
This is a book well worth investing in. The personal gain is invaluable.
