Do you live in a constant state of if only this would happen then my life would be better or if only that hadn't happened my attitude would be better? What about the what if questions--what if something bad happens? Worry has its own set of problems.

This ebook was free when I downloaded it from Barnes and Noble to my Nook library. I enjoy inspirational books, and I do not enjoy heavy handed proselytizing from born-again Christians.
This book offers study questions at the end of each chapter so it might be suitable for a Christian book club, and that target market is the only one to whom I might recommend this book.

Nice devotional with touching stories about people who have survived "what-if" situations. Excellent overview of the positive things we can intentionally choose on a daily basis to live the abundant life that Jesus promised and to be a positive influence on those we come in contact with.

A quick read that is filled with stories of women who have faced real-life challenges and how they chose to overcome them... "Every life event, large or small, presents you with the choice of how you will respond" - Kendra Smiley.

What a wonderful book. Really gave me hope and examples of how to overcome the what ifs and if only's. By trusting in God anything is possible.
