Format: Paperback
This slim volume contains a series of clarifying moments one searches for; as contemporary as the evening news, yet it was penned in 1893. In the confusion of a world cluttered with the daily challanges of situational ethics, this book allows you to reset your compass in a direction that will provide meaning and power, not just to your day, but to your entire life. Anna Robertson Brown was the daughter of a Presbyterian minister and the first woman to graduate with a Ph.D in English from the University of Pennsylvania. Her certainty of God was at the center of her tenets on restructuring one's life to dismiss the unimportant, irrelevant, and nonessential aspects of life. We tend to assign such great importance to people and situations in life that only weigh us down, both emotionally and physically. One line in her book provided enough insight to provide a lifetime of reflection. She writes, " We may drop worry...Worry is spiritual near-sightedness; a fumbling way of looking at little things, and of magnifying their value." If one believes that all things are in the hands of God, how can one give themself to worry in any case? In the eternal scheme of things, we tend to view things in an immediate context. She reminds us that there is a much larger picture; a picture of which we most often lose sight because we've put ourselves in the center of the small one closest to us. If you are looking for a read that will take under an hour but will last a lifetime, then do not pass this up. You will want more than one copy so you will be able to pass it along to those you love.

Format: Paperback
A friend of mine gave me a copy of this book recently when I was in the hospital. She gives out copies of it for graduations, weddings, birthdays, and all similar life-marking occasions. I was so blessed to get a copy of it! I also now give it (or suggest it) for just about every important occasion. I plan to reread it every year on my birthday. This is a perfect book for those occasions when we need to take a long hard look at our lives. There's no adult of any age who wouldn't benefit from reading this book, at least once, and really thinking about it. I suggest that you imagine, as you read it, that you are very old and have lived a long life, and you are now looking back at yourself present-day. There are so many things that are unimportant, that get in our way, that take up our precious time, while life is so very very short. How does your perspective change? You'll be amazed at how differently you look at (your new chance at) life when you're finished reading.

It's a small book with a simple message that gained recognition way back in 1895. It conveys a deep spiritual wisdom and message on what really matters which is not the life on earth but our purpose in order to gain eternal life.

I have an original 1893 copyright of this. Wonder if it's worth anything? Read it all just now before typing this. Excellent book couldn't put it down until I was done! !!

Excellent message on what is worth while from many years ago. Still true today and will continue to be so.
