Blue Like Play Dough — I loved Tricia’s candor in this book on motherhood. She doesn’t pretend to have it altogether or to have it all figured out, but just shares encouragement from her own journey from her years as a young single mom to now being a mom of three teens. You’ll be blessed, inspired, challenged, and encouraged through her stories and insights.
Try Giving Yourself Away — My mom picked up this book at a thrift store a number of months ago and loaned it to me awhile back. I finally had a chance to read it yesterday as I was flying back from VA and was so motivated to look for and take advantage of opportunities to bless others in simple, practical ways. Just taking a few minutes to drop an email or pick up the phone or say an encouraging word to someone can often mean a great deal–and you’ll likely find that you’re blessed in seeking to be a blessing!
Against All Odds — While I thought the play-by-plays of martial arts competitions got a little monotonous, overall, this book was an interesting and encouraging read. Chuck has experienced many, many setbacks in life and, instead of being discouraged and disheartened, he’s turned them into comebacks.
