Books…At different level of our lives, we each grow to see the world differently. This can be because of our beliefs, our way of living, or our way of thinking, our strengths and weaknesses; which means, each of us may get different messages from reading the same book at the same time.
Remember, you don’t have to agree with every step each book has to offer. The important thing is to pick a few things that work best for you and take the time to know you; be open to learn new ways with an open mind and open heart. We hope each book will provide you with the steps needed to change your way of life for good. Be kind to yourself and others, now and always. Best wishes to all.
