Is my ordinary, everyday life actually significant? Is it okay to be fulfilled by the simple acts of raising kids, working in an office, and cooking chicken for dinner?It’s been said, “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away.” The pressure of that can be staggering as we spend our days looking for that b...

    I received this book from the author and publisher in exchange for an honest review.I love this book. I promise you I am not just saying that because I got it for free. I think the author and I could be friends if we both could get past our introvert tendencies and actually make and keep plans. Her ...

    Each and every moment of life can have profound effect on us and on others. In this book, the author shares experiences that made me laugh and made me cry. I also saw myself in many of the situations she shares about. I kept saying, "Me, too, me, too!" This is a fantastic book of personal stories wh...

    So, this was not my favorite book by Melanie. She does really well with story telling - which I think was missing from this book. Since she didn’t have a narrative arc that she was telling from Chapter 1 to Chapter 27, a lot of chapters seemed to ramble. This was also the first book of hers whe...

    Wow, what an amazing book. I've never read any of Melanie's books before. I'm so glad I was chosen to receive an advanced copy. (Thanks Julie for entering me!!!)

    I suspect it might be a personal rule of Melanie Shankle's to never use an exclamation point. And this is what I love about her! (See what I did there?) And because of that, with every book and blogpost she writes, I feel like I am having a conversation with a dry-witted friend who happens to make m...

    3.5/4 stars. I have read all of her books, and this one wasn’t my favorite. It was good, an easy read....

    I laughed out loud several times while reading this..so many parallels to my life growing up in the 70s/80s. Reading this is like having an easy conversation with an old friend; no pretensions, just very "real". ...

    I really enjoyed this inspiring memoir. It's not about a life of huge accomplishments, but a reminder that life is made up of little moments. Some are moments where we show up and do what needs to be done and others are moments where we just need to be still and appreciate the precious time we have ...
