5.0 out of 5 stars Life Lessons and Inspiring Stories, November 8, 2012
This review is from: God Never Blinks: 50 Lessons for Life's Little Detours (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a little gem of a book. It is a quick read - the chapters are very short, but it is well worth your time.

The author Ms. Brett presents a good case for her positions, although it is not necessary for you to agree with them to enjoy the book.

The author put a lot of her heart and personal stories that make her experiences really hit home.

This is one of those books that you definitely want to purchase so you can re-read sections.

It is an uplifting book that has expressions of gratitude for all that life has to offer, along with encouragement to help face whatever comes along.

Here are some sections that give a great example of what to expect:

"A friend of mine signs her e-mails with a Leonard Cohen chorus discounting perfect offerings. She embraces her imperfect offerings of art and music, confident that any cracks in them let the light sneak in."

"I once heard someone say that prayer is more than words. It's a stance you take, a position you claim. You throw your body against the door to keep the demons from advancing and stay put until they go away."

"I've had a great life," he said through the oxygen mask over and over. "No one has had a better life than me." What a great claim to make on your deathbed. To wrap your arms around the life you lived and give thanks for it alone. No regrets. No what-ifs. No should haves."

As always if you have any questions just ask.
