Unstick Your Mind

Shift Your Mindset, Develop Grit & Break Barriers "Unstick Your Mind: Shift Your Mindset, Develop Grit & Break Barriers" by Mimika Cooney is a compelling journey into the intricate relationship between thoughts and actions. In my first encounter with Cooney's work, this book stands out as a refreshing departure from typical self-help narratives. It offers a practical approach to overcoming limiting beliefs, emphasizing continual learning and the transformative power of neuroplasticity. Rooted in real-world examples and tailored for Christians dealing

Be The Sunshine

A Ray of Positivity "Be the Sunshine" shares the real-life journey of someone named Sunshine, dealing with the pressures of having a name associated with constant happiness. As a first-time reader of this author, I found the book to be a sincere exploration of self-acceptance and embracing one's uniqueness. Unlike typical self-help books, "Be the Sunshine" doesn't prescribe happiness or positivity. Instead, it shares personal stories that delve into the author's life, emphasizing the importance of being true to oneself.

Tangles and Tinsel

A Heartwarming Holiday Novella Jennifer Sienes, known for her compelling storytelling, brings us "Tangles and Tinsel," a heartwarming novella that explores the complexities of human relationships against the backdrop of the holiday season. If you're familiar with her work, you'll appreciate the same quality of writing in this novella. Kimberley Saint John is the main character in the story. She wants peace and happiness during Christmas, especially because her father is now sober. She dreams of building a family, ideally

Marshaling Her Heart

"Marshaling Her Heart" by Mary Connealy was the first book I read by this author, and it was quite an adventure. The story is set in the Wild West, filled with romance, excitement, and some nail-biting moments. The main characters are Becky, a strong-willed ranch owner, and Nate, a former U.S. Marshal. When Nate suggests that Becky's ranch could be a good hideout for a group of marshals who are chasing a dangerous gang, it kicks off a captivating romance.
