I have always been a people pleaser and needed approval from everyone in order to feel good about myself after reading this book I finally know and am able to not need anyone to make me feel secure about myself but me.it is very important to accept myself as I am .
Ties together all the characters in the Seasons of Sugarceek Series. I was sad to see this was the last book. I grew to love all the characters and glad the author each gave them a story esp. Judith and Caleb Graber.
excellent book on self esteem. Wish I would read this sooner. I have been lacking confidence and this book helped me to see that I could change /that I can change . By having faith in God and trusting him all things are possible.
Sad story about 2 people who really loved each. Dana and Christopher Reeves lives both eneded on sad notes but their love will live on forever through their son. I was truly amazed the strength Dana had throughout her husband's paralysis and her own illness. Their story was full of hope and strength which edured right up to Chris's death and eventually her own.
This book is about living in the now. There are 2 parts to this book. Part I has 99 meditations to read and ponder over.Part II is about people's stories in how they live in the now.I enjoyed this book and found it very important to live in the now!
I found this book to be very helpful and informative esp. when dealing with conflicts of any sort. The main point the author is trying to make is that relatiionships are built on trust, honesty, and respect.The author lists 9 rules to drastically improve any relationship of any kind. They are as follows:1.Show genuine enthusiasm when you greet the person.2. Show respect. This meansnot criticizing the person harshly and certainly never in front of anyone else.This also means you show reverence when you are not with this person by not gossiping or speaking poorly about her to anyone else. And when she is speaking to you give her your full undivided attention : do not read or have your focus divided.3. Be supportive. 4. Give her the benefit of the doubt. 5. Let her know you appreciate her. It seems that in all kinds of relationships the only time we say something nice is when we have done something wrong.6. Giver her a chance to contribute to your life7. Wait 24 hours if the person does something that angers you8. Talk about what is bothering you. 9.Share yourself and open up a bit with this person
Again another excellent book in the Seasons of Sugar Series. I read the 1st two. This also was just as good.I liked how the author interwined all the characters throughout the series. She did a great job of developing all the characters as well as show the reader that the amish do have trials and tribulatiosn just as the English Folk do. There is one more book that is also part of this series . It is called Christmas at Sugarcreek ,which I am currently reading.
I just could not put this book down. I finished it in two days. Tim Grabor arrives in Sugarcreek to help his aunt and uncle with there farm. One day he comes across Clara(the amish school teacher) sitting by the creek. He is charmed by her and does not care about the physical scars Clara has. They goes through a few hurdles until they finally end up together.
