it's no secret


this rockin’ slash ultra amazing book was recommended to me by my awesome little brother ryan {of whom i’ll blog about later this week}, my adorable co-workers les & steve & my fake friend, oprah. on saturday night i was having a little trouble sleeping, so i decided to crack it open. i didn’t really intend on retiring to my beddy-by at three o’ clock in the wee am hours, but once i started...i was heavily addicted! and i must say, it totally rocked my angela dunn world!

it is a book about positive thinking. it is a book about the law of attraction. it is a book about believing in yourself & others. it is a book about being genuinely grateful for all that you have been given. it is a book about finding true joy & peace.

it reiterated to me in a very powerful & profound way, simple truths that i already knew & fully believe in my little angie heart:

-that i am a child of God, who loves me deeply

-that i have infinite worth & potential

-to “trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. in all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
proverbs 3:5

-that i have meaning, purpose & direction in this life

-that fear is the complete opposite of faith

-that “the tender mercies of the Lord are over all those whom he hath chosen because of their faith, to make them mighty even unto the power of deliverance.”
1 nephi 1:20

-that {as mr. baser would say} i am a miracle. and i can do anything.

-that “that whatsoever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
mark 11:24

-that thoughts become things

-that “with god, all things are possible”
mark 10:27

& lastly,

-that “men are, that they might have joy.
2 nephi 2:25

so basically, anyone that’s in the mood for a life changing read...check it out!

I don't know if you know who I am (I was good friends with Myron in the "single" days- and I am Staci (Brinton) Allen's sister). Anyway, I found your blog on my sister's website and it is my favorite blog ever!!! I usually just check out the pictures on people's blogs, but I read all your entrys because they made me laugh...I loved them!! And I LOVE your stools!! I saw some like that on Pottery Barn and searched for months before I thought I found a good deal on imitation ones (I got red also), but nothing like your good deal!! 13.27 each...WOW! And they look amazing!!
