An incredibly interesting and inspirational tale!!,
This review is from: Conquering Your Goliaths: A Parable of the Five Stones (Paperback)
When the company she works for relocates to another state, Virginia Bean loses a job she's held for ten years. With no replacement employment lined up, she's floundering trying to figure out what to do next. Showing up for a job interview, she finds herself embarking on an unexpected spiritual path. Insights, like the fact she hadn't been happy at her previous job, begin to reveal themselves.
Conquering Your Goliaths~ A Parable of the Five Stones by Kathryn Elizabeth Jones is a self-help book contained within a fictionalized story. With each stone Ms. Bean is given, she begins to apply its meaning to her life to make significant changes. Readers follow along with her as she motivates herself to overcome negative thinking and acquire new skills. She also learns to accept that every negative experience she's ever had has been necessary to develop her independence and overall well-being.
Author Kathryn Elizabeth Jones has written a wonderfully interesting and inspirational tale. Listening, Trust, Optimism, Tenacity, and Constancy are the five essential elements required to live a fulfilled existence. By reading this book, anyone can learn to apply them to his or her life. Only when individuals begin to accept the fact that an easy life without trials isn't really worth living, will they truly understand the lessons life is teaching them.
