Dr. Brene Brown has coined a phrase "wholehearted living." Summary? Be who God made you to be and be that perfectly well. The premise is how to cultivate practices and a mindset to engage with people/the world from a place of self-acceptance and worthiness. One of my favorite books of hers so far!
This perhaps is one of the most life-changing books I have ever read. I enjoyed it so much that's part of the reason I am in the process of working on an e-book about boundaries. It is something that will challenge you on a personal level, and also help you evaluate/learn how to implement these tools in all types of relationships, especially the crazy-making ones.
I got this book for Christmas a year ago. Since then I have read it probably 3 times. Over the last few years, I have grown to love and strive live out the words of the serenity prayer. Think of this book boundaries on a spiritual, faith level. Also very good!
Who the heck doesn't need more practice in accepting the things we cannot change?! I do.
This book made challenged me and think a lot. While I don't consider myself pro- death penalty, it really made me think about why and how the justice system as we know it today exists. It reaffirmed my understanding of the importance of this pro-life issue, and a good place to start in having that conversation well.
What would you add to this list? I do love a good book recommendation:)
