really liked it

refreshing + insightful. I wish I had purchased this book instead of borrowing it from the library so that I could keep its wise tidbits always on hand – instead, I've settled for taking photos of stories + quotes that really spoke to me... and because this book tore its way straight into my heart, there were lots of pages to take pictures of. very thankful to have picked this up. only downside (for me, anyway) were the bible passages and references to erin's faith, which while I can appreciate, I can't relate to. overall, I greatly enjoyed erin's honest writing, and the simple (yet difficult to swallow) message that's at the heart of this book.
