Amazon Reviews:

“This is such an excellent little book! Never thought, when I started reading it, that I could REALLY learn something. I mean, something I could use in my everyday life. I liked the title… and found that Gail Woodard’s analysis of what simple rules of life (that we take for granted or that we don’t think much of), can bring to you is wonderful! It is never written in a negative motion but, in the contrary, tries to show you good ways to re-think things and make you feel more comfortable with yourself. It makes you aware, and focused and it brings you… joy. The whole book should make you feel on top of… your life! Happy reading!”

“This read was everything I was hoping for and then some. In addition to being well-written, it was interesting and kept me thinking long after I had finished it. I especially benefited from the chapter about choosing your own faith. Overall, I highly recommend this one and I’m super glad I stumbled on it.”

“I love this book so much that it has a permanent place on my bedside table. Gail’s style of writing and wisdom is a guide to becoming a better person.”

Everything in this book is gently offered with an invitation from the author to try it and see for yourself what happens.
