“The authors of this life-affirming, love-affirming workbook know, as they write, ‘Affirmations are ‘right thoughts’ that produce cognitive health, emotional well-being, and the necessary motivation to achieve our goals and realize our dreams.’ That may sound like a tall order, but the quotes and prompts the authors offer for envisioning ways to take action in our lives to hold the love we must nurture in ourselves make it all seem very possible indeed. And the more we live in love, the more peaceful we become and the more we have to share with others. I feel enriched by the wise quotes the book offers and what I write from the prompts.”
