5 Books That Inspired Me

  1.  9 Things You Simply Must Do to Succeed in Love and Life by Dr. Henry Cloud

Dr. Henry Cloud, psychologist and best-selling author, discusses 9 principles in which to respond to certain types of people and situations. Sometimes things that are so simple are not always so obvious.

  1. Thieves by Trey Smith

Trey Smith is the author and founder of The God in a Nutshell Project. He has many documentaries on You Tube. This book is based on his life, which sounds like it could be fiction, but it is a true story. To me, this book is his testimony; all of those events helped shape Trey Smith into the man that he is today.

  1. The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman

This is part of a series of love language books. As with most couples, we discussed this book during premarital counseling. It gives you a better understanding of your mate and yourself as it relates to the expression of love. It could be through physical touch, words of affirmation, gifts, acts of service, or quality time. Some of us have more than one “love language”.

  1. Miracles Happen by Mary Kay Ash

All Mary Kay Beauty Consultants receive a copy of Mary Kay’s autobiography when they join. On September 13, 1963, Mary Kay Ash started a company with only a dream that is now a multi-billion dollar company. After 11 years, I’m still a believer in the products.

  1. The Magic of Thinking Big by Dr. David J. Schwartz

My Sales Director recommended this book when I first started as a Beauty Consultant. Just as I believe that words are very powerful, so are your thoughts.

Lately, I have re-read a couple of these books. Sometimes you need a refresher.
