The Power of the Word

Books have opened my eyes to ideas that I’ve never been exposed to before. They have shaped my life and given me a deeper understanding of principles of truth. I love being able to see things from different perspectives. I’m often reading two or three books at a time; choosing which one I’ll spend time with depending on my mood.

There came a time in my life when I was compelled to dig deep, be resilient, and craft a different “fairy-tale ending” for myself than the one I’d envisioned. Several books helped me re-imagine my future, forge new habits and feel confident in moving forward on unfamiliar ground.

There is a scripture that states, “Seek ye diligently and teach one another words of wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom . ..”

Here is a list of my favorites. I have been awakened, educated and empowered by what I’ve learned through these amazing books. I guarantee that each one is fantastic and will be totally worth your time.(Check them out on the Suggested Reading tab.)
