I’m pleased to be sharing my review for the smallest book I’ve read in 2020 as part of the blog tour organised by Anne of Random Things Tours. Thank you to the publisher for a paperback copy of the book, my thoughts are my own and not influenced by the gift.
The past few months have made us realise that change is inevitable – sometimes good but sometimes it can be cruel and makes your world go out of control.We might experience anxiety, low moods, night sweats, exhaustion or worse.
We lose all hope and feel that there is nothing to look forward to.
Little Book of Hope helps you find your way back again – through Reflections to guide you through the difficult times, together with: Family. Friends. Rest. Time – for yourself. Walk. Talk. Cry. Grieve. Meditate. Pray. Accept things. Patience.
Dedicated to all those around the world who have lost hard but loved much – that you may re-discover Hope and welcome the beautiful pleasure of joy back into your lives.
This is a perfectly sized book for people to pop in a pocket or bag to carry with them wherever they go. The book gives the reader the opportunity to clear their mind of racing and/or anxious thoughts.
The book includes quotes, poetry, and reflections about how having Hope can help in all areas of life – the power of positive thinking. Some of the pages mention Heaven, prayer and God, which isn’t obvious from the ‘blurb’ on the back of the book.
