After the last two years, we are all more than ready for a fresh start. The new year is the best time to reexamine our priorities and practice self-love. Unfortunately, while many make resolutions, few seem to keep them as the new year kicks off. It could be that accountability, or the lack thereof, is the reason many of us fail at keeping those bold New Year’s Day proclamations. Truly changing the way we look at ourselves and thoroughly examining our own goals takes time but is more than worth the time and effort it takes to do the work.
Self-Love Toolbox – Powerful Steps to Help Retool Your Life Starting Today! is a self-help book written by Wanda W. Garcia. Readers looking for a very formal, preachy text that takes lots of patience to pour through will not find it here. Instead, Garcia goes to great lengths to give readers a down-to-earth, easy-to-follow instruction manual for making much-needed changes in their lives. She makes no promises for miracles and her honesty is refreshing. In fact, much of the book reads like a conversation with a good friend.
Garcia writes in a conversational tone and low-pressure kind of way. This nine-step program is presented in a format that is easy to follow and puts all of the work and self-examination in the reader’s hands–accountability is the name of the game. In no uncertain terms, Garcia tells readers from the beginning that journaling is a requirement for the success of her program. She gives readers lots of space to respond to prompts and self-reflect within the book’s pages.
Unlike other self-help books that focus on the author’s story and personal experiences, this one instead puts the reader’s needs at the forefront. The Self-Love Toolbox is as much a workbook as it is expository text. Readers will not be disappointed in Garcia’s approach. Virtually every page is dedicated to self-analysis, whether it’s examining attributes and assets or making SMART goals. Garcia discusses the barriers we encounter and spends a significant amount of time helping readers dig deep into finding ways to overcome the obstacles that stand in the form of truly loving ourselves.
Self-Love Toolbox – Powerful Steps to Help Retool Your Life Starting Today! will appeal to readers looking for a new approach to life changes and self-improvement.

Anthony Baisden’s The Mountains We Climb offers readers incredible hope for their futures. As self-help books go, Baisden’s work is a true standout. His book has it all, from teaching readers to embrace the pain they encounter in their day-to-day lives to focusing on the vision they have for their lives. From cover to cover, Baisden uses a conversational tone to capture readers’ attention and keep them thoroughly engaged in his life story.
While Baisden’s work is short in terms of length, it is filled with genuinely invaluable information and advice. The author knows of which he speaks–the examples he gives from his own life are relevant, relatable, and memorable. He opens up about how he had no clue what he wanted from life at a young age. He shares his indecisiveness and even his complete lack of any direction for his future. Teens and young adults will find this relatable and draw them into the rest of the book. Its short length makes it ideal for young readers.
Readers will read about the pain Baisden experienced in his past that he openly shares. He is raw, honest, and totally forthcoming with every aspect of his history. His pain has impacted his life in many ways, and the fact that he is willing to share will stick with readers far past the last page.
There is an incredibly positive tone to all of Baisden’s advice. From his most painful experiences to his honesty about his own struggle with failures, he keeps his head up while successfully encouraging readers to do the same. It is easy to feel his positive energy radiating through his words. The lesson of, bad things happen but that does not mean you have a bad life, is presented to readers, not in a preaching manner but rather in a coaching manner.
The Mountains We Climb is a thought-provoking self-help book that teens and young adults will relate to. Young adults will also find this new-age motivational style a source of inspiration.

In her book Addicted to Health: Going with God to Break Free from a Health-Obsessed Culture, Victoria P. Davis preaches about healthy eating and healthy living in a different way. The author talks about societal norms, dieting, good health fused with faith and belief in God. The content in this book is far from the usual health advice that we read about every day. Victoria P. Davis shares proven ways in which readers can lead a healthy and fulfilling life.
Victoria P. Davis invites readers into her world, and shares her wins, challenges and the battles she has fought.

Her life is a true testament to the fact that nothing is impossible if you are determined.
One thing stands out in this inspirational self-help book; it is how she writes about the various topics and blends mini-topics in every chapter. Addicted to Health has three parts, each covering crucial topics that are somehow related. The first part of the book covers topics on health addiction, health obsession and different views on health. In the second part of the book, Victoria P. Davis tells her story and gets personal. There is a lot to learn just by reading stories of people that have gone through challenges that not many openly talk about. Victoria P. Davis’s writing style shows her compassion for others and their unique situations. When reading about steps to freedom and leading others to freedom, one can realize that the author is a kind soul that does not mind helping those in need.

Reading the Bible is one thing, understanding it is another. It requires a specific analytical approach as well as God’s grace to see the light between the words. Fritz Michel discusses four points in his illuminating book. The first being the right man who is announced and created for a specific purpose. In a way, we are all the right man. The second point is the right time which is God’s timing. We are all advised to be wary of our own impatience. The third is the right message which the appropriate understand of the word. The fourth is the right agenda which is a divine inspired intention. The author summarizes the kingdom and Christianity in a way that makes it simpler and easier to understand. It is a breakdown of something that has caused an ideological divide between people with different understanding of humanity from God’s perspective.
The author takes his time to highlight different beliefs and myths. Then he goes ahead to confirm or debunk with scripture. His commitment to ensuring appropriate and correct understanding of God is evident through the level of effort he has put into writing this book. One notable element is his discussion of worship. He urges on the importance of worship. There is also an extensive discussion about Satan. His days in heaven before he became the adversary and the actions that led to his banishment. This book provides a wealth of information.
This enlightening spiritual book breaks down the Bible so that average readers can understand it better. It is a study guide of God’s word. It has minced complex biblical chunks into bite sized bits. While I enjoyed the content within this informative spiritual guide, I felt that the structure of the book could have been improved by increasing the font and line spacing to make it easier to read the spiritually enriching content.
That said, this book is an interesting paraphrasing of the Bible. It is an intriguing retelling of the events that have shaped human life for generations. This is a thought-provoking book that will have readers challenge some of their long-held beliefs. It might also reinforce some beliefs readers have but cannot quite explain. This is an interesting piece of literature to discuss with your Christian book club.
Four Rights The Intersection is an informative and illuminating spiritual guide that will leave readers feeling informed and spiritually enriched.

Life is a series of peaks and pits. One day you are down, the next you are up. But then amidst those who leave you and those who love you is life’s interesting journey. Often, when something happens to break us, we have no idea where to start. We want to curl up in a ball and protect ourselves from the world. This book is a step-by-step guide not just for getting through the difficult parts but coming out on the other side stronger and with more wisdom. It is a roadmap to finding God and holding on to God’s grace when you need it most.
Author Mary Dunbar is very realistic about the human condition. She knows that human beings are prone to being angry with God when things start to go bad. She urges the reader to remain steadfast in prayer and frequently consult the word. She is not condescending and is fully understanding on everything life can take you through.
The author also recognizes that prayer may not be enough. She advises on the importance of watching who you relate with. Some people are only meant to be in your life momentarily. Through God’s grace, you can realize that. She also advises readers to do something to accompany the prayers. If you want to get out of the hole, you can pray to get a ladder but you would have to climb out yourself.
The author has created a brief yet insightful and incredibly useful set of lifehacks. Rarely do people mix prayer and proactivity when giving advice. Hers is a full dimensional tutorial on how to overcome the various obstacles that life presents. This inspiring self-help book is written in very simple language that anyone can understand. Her writing is conversational. The author is seeking to help people who often find themselves having trouble moving on from hurt and disappointments.
10 Steps to Help You Get on with Your Life by Mary Dunbar is a motivational and thought-provoking book that is different from the average self-help book. The information is broken up by poems that are entertaining and expressive, providing a well-deserved pause from material that is deeply affective to anyone who reads it. Do not wait for the storm to buy an umbrella. Get your umbrella now and keep it ready for the rainy season. Read this book and pass it along. Share it with someone, let them learn how to overcome too.

Wisdom Of The Men shares your life story and wisdom gained over the years to help readers improve their lives. Why was this an important book for you to write?
When I was in high school I had the great privilege to be mentored by Frank McCourt, winner of the 1986 Pulitzer Prize for his memoir about his impoverished childhood in Ireland, “Angela‘s Ashes.“ He inspired me and many other people to want to be writers.
I’ve been writing books for years but I never felt like I wrote anything of the quality of Angela‘s Ashes, and I wanted to do that because my ambition is to win the Pulitzer Prize and follow in his footsteps.
As you will see when you read the book, wisdom of the men came organically out of my experiences in the men’s self-help movement, and the vision for the book evolved into what it is because of my experiences in life and work. I needed to write this book because I needed to create my life‘s work masterpiece, so I put everything I had into this to make it the best book I could possibly write.
What is a common obstacle you find many people face when becoming an entrepreneur?
The biggest common obstacle for people who want to be entrepreneurs or are in their journey is that they don’t want to try and fail because they don’t want to look stupid. It’s unfortunate because this obstacle holding so many people back is for the most part entirely imaginary as no one is thinking about you or anything you were doing. If you’re holding yourself back because you don’t want people to think you’re stupid or foolish or a loser, you really need to understand that no one is thinking about you at all. They’re just thinking about them self.
What is one piece of advice someone gave you that had the biggest impact on your life?
One of my great mentors, Dan Kennedy, started saying something I picked up on, “rich people work hard.“
For many years I wasn’t sure if I should allow myself to portray myself in my marketing as a hard-working person because so much of my work is about Celebrity, and I was concerned that Celebrity required a lifestyle of ease. But having asked many rich people including Martha Stewart, Ice-T, Dr Oz, and others who you will read about in the book, “do rich people work hard?“ I am very confident that self-made rich people do work hard, and this advice really allowed me to focus on working hard and use my hard work as a marketing tool and asset that has made me lots of money.
What is one thing you hope readers take away from your book?
There’s so many things that I want people to take away from the book, to narrow it down to only one thing would be doing the book a great disservice. In that spirit, to answer this question, I want people to understand the importance of “over delivering“ and I hope that this answer in its own way over delivers on your question.

No man is an island. Nothing emphasizes that point more than this book does. Wisdom of the Men is a story about Clint Arthur’s life and the various wise and successful men he has encountered. He went from being a taxi driver earning very little to a successful man capable of building beautiful homes for his family in the Hollywood Hills as well as becoming a well sought-after speaker and bestselling author among other things. The man wears many hats and he wears them well. This is a book about not just changing your self but also changing the environment around you and the world at large.
One thing that stands out in this book is the importance of the company one keeps. The book embodies the old saying, “show me your friends and I will tell you who you are”. In this enlightening memoir we are told to “keep the company of wise men and you will gain wisdom”. This thought-provoking book brings you into the circle of wise men and shares many stories and life lessons in doing so. Author Clint Arthur’s entertaining anecdotes along with pragmatic life lessons will help readers see how to go from being an ordinary person who gets by to becoming an extraordinary person at the top of their world.
Articulately written, Clint Arthur takes his time narrating the story. He does not shy away from sharing his fears. He takes time to narrate all the chapters in full and glorious detail. All while being supportive to those who might not be at the same stage of life.
I feel like there are two important takeaways from this book. The first is that you will not and cannot do it on your own. You need, not just people, but quality people in your life. The second is that if you are afraid, you are on the right path therefore embrace the fear and let it drive you.
Rarely does a book turn out to be a manual for success in life. Wisdom of the Men is an entertaining personal transformation manual that has the potential to change your life.
