Along comes a book by a storyteller who holds the power, in true stories well told, to offer a motivating and healing balm for those thirsting and eager for somebody to remind them to “say YES to life, slow down, wake up, let go, hold on and LIVE!” As readers listen to Baumbich’s stories, laugh and cry, and then revisit their own stories, they will discover the sovereign hand of God not only loving them in the midst of adversity but wooing them to live life to the full.
Readers should fasten their seatbelts for this warm, fun, provocative, heartwarming ride. “We are so busy running our lives that we are often not enjoying them, giving thanks for them, or realizing our joy and potential,” Charlene says. “But if you learn the lively and releasing art of listening to and mining your own stories, you’ll learn that your life is, indeed, better than you think!
I do not usual read self help type books. But because I have been down in the mouth with Lymphoma I thought it might be a good book to read to help lift me up a little bit. And honestly it did lift me up a little bit. Although personally I am already applying most of the things she talks about to my life. And I have been for some time.
So while I didn’t get as much out of it as others might, I do think it would be a good book for someone who is trying to make some major changes in their life. It gives you some good ideas, and ways to do it. It offers insight and thoughts on how not to miss your Life. As the title says.
So if you need a little help just learning how to live. This will be a book you should sit down and look at.
