How I Learned to Build a Life, Not a Resume

Founder and CEO of MINDBODYGREEN

Jason Wachob

Jason Wachob is the Founder and CEO of the Blog MINDBODYGREEN.  In his book he talks about creating more Wellness instead of Wealth. That life should be more than just about money, but living a life that incorporates a lifestyle of mental, physical, spiritual and emotional health.

The book chapter are broken down just like the website. I have been a subscriber  to the website for years.  So I knew the book would be something I would want to read. Eat.Move.Work.Believe.Explore.Breathe.Connect.Love.Heal.Thank.Ground.Live.Laugh.

Jason Wachob name these as the “building blocks of wellth”. This book is part memoir and prescriptive advice.  I actually enjoyed the personal life stories I felt were full of honesty.  The book will show you a way to have a more fuller and happier life.  This is the type of book that you can always refer back to. The author says to use this book as a guide to help you with your journey to a better life.  Wellth has a wealth of information that you can’t buy.  Who doesn’t want a more healthier and meaningful life.

Gratitude

Gratitude

Gratitude

by Dani DiPirro

This is a little book that has a lot of quotes, fresh insights an activities that motivate and that helps cultivate an attitude of gratitude.

Some of the quotes in this book are:

“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” Marcel Proust French novelist (1871-1922)

“Write down one memory you are truly thankful to have within your heart.”

“Some people grumble that roses have thorns; I am grateful that thorns have roses.” Alphonse Karr French writer (1808-1890)

I started a quote book over a year ago, some of the quotes were new to me and some were not.  Having a book of quotes can help you when you have a rough day. I pull the book out when I am having a hard day and sit it on my desk to a quote that I can read and meditate on through out my day. For people who are looking for ways to stay grateful this book is for you.

I received a free ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

Life is Real

Life is Real

HONESTLY

Getting Real About Jesus and Our Messy Lives

by Daniel Fusco with D.R. Jacobsen

Honesty is a journey through the book of Ephesians.  Daniel Fusco shares two thoughts with us, one God is Real and the other is Life is Messy.    Daniel Fusco is a lead pastor of Crossroad Community Church in Vancouver, Washington.

Daniel Fusco uses the four-parts in A Love Supreme, by John Coltrane to speak about our messy lives. The parts of Love Supreme are: Acknowledgement, Resolution, Pursuance, and Psalms.

This book is about going through the messiness of life by first acknowledging that we have mess.  Whether in our relationships, family, job or church we all have lives that are filled with junk.  Daniel Fusco tells us that the remedy for the mess is God’s grace and God’s peace.  By God’s grace and  peace we can find resolution by putting away our old lives and living a new life as a Christian.  We can’t get around the messiness in our lives without Jesus.  We have to pursue a relationship with God which takes conversation. Prayer and Praise together is the key. We should pray when  life gives us lemon and pray when we are given lemonade. We need to walk on the road God is calling us to walk, a path that he has prepared and equipped  for us. In the section Psalms, it is about love, Love Supreme the perfect love.  The love that God gives us.  The love we give our family, friends, and yes enemies.

This book was provided to me free from the publisher through the Tyndale review blogger program. I was not required to write a positive review and, the opinions I have expressed are my own. As a person who has a been through the good and bad of life.  Life is real. I could appreciate the author’s real approach to live.
