a recommendation



with my toes soaking in the baby pool this morning,
i finished this book.
{for the second time}

my sister gifted it to me several months ago.

SUCH a worthwhile read.
so insightful & inspiring.

loved it the first time,
and picked it up again for round two
because i'm really wanting to learn how to
better implement it's teachings in my life.
{*harder than it sounds.}

it's really got me thinking about how i treat people,
the way i view myself & others, and my intentions in relationships.

it opened my eyes to my pride {my natural man}
and how destructive it can be.

it's inspired me to start listening more keenly
to that little voice inside of me {the spirit}
that always suggests kindness, goodness, and peaceful behavior.

and though this book is not churchy at all:

it reminded me that the only sure way to overcome
my bad feelings & personal inner battles
is by & through the atonement of jesus christ.

i'd highly recommend this book.
but, reading rainbow style-
"you can't take my word for it!"
