A Book to Read to Renew Your Spirit [A Book Review]

As we look ahead to 2019, we are all likely making plans to get healthier, exercise more, eat less chocolate, read more books, watch less TV, and maybe even go on a social media detox. How many of us pay attention to the needs of our spirit though?

Refreshing your soul is essential to your overall health and for 2019, I suggest adding "refresh your spirit" to your list of resolutions. For me, I need that most of all, especially after losing my job a few months ago.

And if you need some guidance, I recommend taking a look at the book Time to Refresh by Karen Brown Tyson. Here is a bit about this book:

What I Thought

I lost my job around the time I had the opportunity to read this book. The author takes you through a day by day journey through her own layoff and gives you words of inspiration, scripture references, and prayers to take with you each day. It's a book that to truly obtain a sense of renewal that the book describes you must take action each day that is described in the book. It may be a fast read but in reality, taking it one day at a time, it's the perfect length.


Losing your job isn't easy but Karen's book helps you get a better outlook and see it as an opportunity, not just a loss.

Be sure to purchase your copy of Time to Refresh by visiting Amazon.com.
