Scraps of Life Book Club Review: If you think that you are way too stressed to have time to read this book then it IS for you. The books is small, the chapters are short and it is a quick, witty read. This book is the perfect size to just toss in your purse and read while you are at red lights (joke) ummm....I mean read while you have a few minutes of waiting time no matter where you are or what you are doing.
The book has four sections with forty small chapters. The sections are Time Management, Develop a Sense of Humor (no, really), Cultivate Relationships and Focus on Faith. I love the sections and then each mini-chapter is broken down into specific topics so that you can quickly go to the one you need to read at that moment. The author also provides thought provoking questions with most of the chapters, too.
For example, one of the mini-chapters "Nuts in the Batter" is one worth reading. It addresses the "not so friendly" neighbor in all of us. She describes it as selfish behavior that grates our last nerve raw. It is something we've done or had done to us that just sits and festers or causes us to react and then regret later. Very insightful tips and scripture is given to point our selfish behavior to something worth giving our energy to. The humor really flows in the chapter which helps to aleve stress, too. The author pointed out that we don't have to WIN at everything. We don't have to dominate everything. When we do there is loss of respect, friendship, peace and relationships. As much as some of us try and avoid difficult people in our life (I know that I do this) we need to know that they are often in our life for unseen purposes. To end the chapter "Remember, even nutty lumps in the batter add flavor!"
This book would be great for a book club. It would really get the women talking. It would also make a wonderful gift.
