Happy Reading!



48 Days to the Work You Love
By Dan Miller

48 Days to the Work You Love is not about finding a new job. It is about finding out what you are going to “be.” According to Dan Miller, failing to make that fundamental discovery is why so many people find themselves in jobs they hate. But the great news is this book will lead you to the vocation you will love.

Dan Miller will help you see clear patterns form from which you can make successful career and job decisions by understanding your God-given skills and abilities, personality traits, values, dreams, and passions. These patterns create a compass for you. Finding the work you love is finding the fulfillment of your calling.



This is an excellent book about finding work that you love.  The author stresses the importance of "calling" or vocation more than employment.  It sure puts things in a different perspective.

I have two young adult sons that I want to read this book.  I think it is a "must read" before they choose their life's work.  I think the book will give them new light on the subject.

At the end of each chapter are a list of activities for you to work through to help you with the process of discerning your interests, skills, and life patterns that will help you find work that you enjoy doing.

This is a good book for men, women, and young adults as well as older teens.  I highly recommend it.

How to Say No and Live
to Tell About It
 By Mary Byers

Free Shipping

Life is best when it's lived purposefully and passionately. When you try to be all things to all people, you run the risk of being nothing to anyone and missing out on God's special plan for your life. Each chapter in How to Say No... will bring you a little closer to learning how to say "no" without guilt or anxiety by focusing on key self-discovery and questions and providing easy-to-follow action steps.

How to Say No ... and Live to Tell About It:  A Woman's Guide to Guilt-Free Decisions tackles the challenges of overwhelmed and overworked women, teaching them strategies for saying no in order to protect limited resources of time, talent, and finances. A former “yes-aholic,” Byers discusses how to say no graciously and without feelings of guilt as she offers tips women can use to evaluate commitments, priorities, and energy levels so they can realistically decide what to take on.

Patti's Two-Cents

By now I'm sure you've figured out that  don't usually review a book in Family Tymes unless I like it.  This book is no exception.  Written in a crisp, clean style, Mary's writing keeps you focused on this very interesting topic of saying "No" so you can give yourself to your "Yes".  I highly recommend this book for anyone who struggles at all with over-commitment or guilt feelings when they do say no to any opportunity.  I heard Mary at a conference a few years back on this topic before she wrote this book.  She shared many motivational ideas in that seminar and she's added to those ideas in this book from shared experiences of other moms just like you & I.
