This little book is a refreshing approach to the daily meditation. The author offers insightful advice and guidance to her readers in a way that says she's been there before. I particularly enjoy the overall tone of the book and the author's voice. Each day is like a personal conversation with Angela Howell. She'll tell you she doesn't have all the answers, but her way of looking for the lessons in the mundane will open your eyes to a different way of thinking about the chaos of life and how to ...more

What a wonderful and gifted writer. I read my first day in Finding the Gift this morning and loved it. I will look forward to reading Angela Howell's inspirational and insightful reflections each day. Thank you Ms. Howell for sharing your introspection with us.

Well done, Angela!

Lovely. Well written, quite insightful, thought provoking and very enjoyable. This is one book that I will happily purchase the actual physical copy so I can write in the margins and show it to friends.

For my full review of FINDING THE GIFT, please visit my book review blog: http://www.wellreadtart.com/2020/02/0...

FINDING THE GIFT completely fits the bill. It’s hard to find inspirational reads that don’t employ re

This feels like someone saw a weird tree, decided to start meditating, and turned their daily journal into a book. Maybe I'm too narcissistic for meditation, but I don't care about someone else's rumination. Give me a concept and allow me to contemplate it on my own, uninfluenced. Instead, I am sifting through what the author saw on her walk one day or the antics of squirrels.

Honestly-- let's start with being fortunate enough to live somewhere with an attic and trees. It sounds amazing

This book has many golden nuggets that will help you in many situations & mindsets! I personally didn’t read it every day but more binge read it when I made time While keeping a journal. Either way you read it you will not regret it! This book confirmed a lot of things for me & taught me more. There are Christian religious attributes in it; however, it is more spiritual in contacts. ...more

Angela,

I want to thank you again for choosing me as a winner of your book. It is actually amazing I received this message shortly after my grandmother messaged me thanking me for gifting the book to her. I chose to give her this book because my grandpa passed away in Christmas Eve and I felt this would be a nice inspiration to her. She has always put everyone else before herself. She knows the importance of understanding what others are going through to know she is not the only one who has suffe

Nice read. I took it slow and really tried to digest all of the mindful readings in the book. Lots of thoughts to ponder.
