I can't say that an entire book has changed my life, but I have read many books that have given me better ways of parenting my children, which I believe will always need improvment or adjustments. There's usually a few things I can take away from a book to ponder and adjust it to my situation.

well any book that helps you become a better parent is a life changing book. i think a book that allows you to better parent is life changing!

"Act like a Lady, Think Like a Man" yep. It's a bestseller now. For the ladies who want better relationships with a man, this is the book to get. I read it over a month ago.

The book I've read that changed my life? that would be the Bible, and it is still continously serving as my guide in this hodgepodge world. The voice of reason I turn to when I feel everything around me darkening.

http://www.amazon.com/Holy-Bible-Woman-Thou-Loosed/dp/0718003713/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1239393746&sr=1-1 This is one of the most amazing Bibles I have owned in my life. Thomas Dexter Jakes(T.D. Jakes) did a very nice version of this Bible. There are many personal messages for women contained in here. It has been nothing less than life changing for me. Highly reccommended.

Yes, I got a copy when nit first came out from the African American bookstore in town here; I try to patronize them through the years. They are friends of mine; Anyhow, I got a copy of the Bible and it was a help. His Woman, Thou Art Loosed book is a very good healing book for any woman that has gone through things. [b][/b]HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Many books over the years have expanded my horizons and changed my point of view on different things, but I'd have to say the only one that stands out in my mind that 'changed my life' is a book I read when I was very young and 'looking to see where I fit in' in life. It was called "The Little World of Don Camillo". It was part of a series and I got hooked on them. Here's a link to check out:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0043918. I think you'll enjoy them momma. Fun and easy to read and the message contained, which I'm sure you'll grasp, is truly life changing..........

Please look for a book called "Not my turn to die, memoirs of a broken childhood in Bosnia" by my friend Savo Heleta. He grew up in Bosnia durin the war, and recently wrote a book about his experiences. I loved his story. Sure, he went into great details about the tragedies of war, but his family came through it in tact, they escaped (I'm not ruining the plot, it's a well known fact even in the liner notes that he escaped), and it really puts life into perspective. I remember a month when Hubby and I were a little short on money, and had to eat "cheaper food". When we felt like complaining, we remembered what Savo and his family had to live in during the war, and we felt a lot better. When we felt a little down about our rather small apartment, we remembered Savo's bomed building, and were happy that we had four walls.

There have been a lot of books that gave me different outlooks in life and some of them inspired me to be a better person. Tuesdays with Morrie (by Mitch Albom) is a very moving book that will teach you a lot about living, dying, and loving. The Solitaire Mystery (by Jostein Gaarder) will open your eyes to what most people don't want to see or don't care to see/realize and maybe you might even be able to relate yourself with the Joker :) books by Robert Kiyosaki, on the other hand, might teach you a thing or two about getting rich and thinking rich.

Yes, I have read books that have changed the way I have thought about life, myself, and others. Pretty much every book I read does this, as I usually only choose really good books. Well, in my opinion they are good. Here are some I reccomend. 1. A Million Little Pieces - James Frey (will always be one of my favourites) 2. The Twilight Saga - Stephenie Meyer (consists of 4 books: Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn) 3. The Pact - Jodi Picoult (it's been a while since I've read this one, but at the time it was very, very good) Hope you take my reccomendations into consideration, they really are great reads.

i have a handful of books that i have read and listened to that changed and kept on changing my life like think and grow rich by napoleon hill, friendship with God by donald walscsh, the 7 habits of highly effective people by stephen covey, life is a journey by jeffrey archer and a lot more. currently, i am into audiobooks because i don't have the luxury of reading time in my kind of work so i have to make use with something i can easily get hold of and can do as of the moment. i have listened to this pastor named joel osteen and he has this book which caught my attention and it's entitles "Become A Better You", wow, everything he had said was true. i also have listened to joe vitale's "The Missing Secret" , he took the time to digest what the "secret" is saying, a detailed "How to.." which in fact how to use the ways of "the secret". very life transforming. all of these led me to one source of all what has been written by these people and it brought my attention to wallace d. wattles, this guy is great and the way he wrote it was so definitive unlike the authors of today who embelishes their books with a lot of non consequential things. wallace d. wattles dives right into the real picture and tells you how to rightfully do it! i will share this book "the science of getting rich" and the "science of success" , i advise you to read the first book first then on to the latter. though, his thoughts are kinda deep that you really need to pause for a while to digest it well. just like food take it in slowly and you will be nourished. i am thankful for the internet because i can find them books for free. i suggest you type in the title of the book or audiobook and add the word torrent in the end and you will find them. be sure to have limewire installed in your PC to download the items.just don't sell them online.happy life, my friend.
