I was a young mom. When I was 34 years old, my daughters were 16, 14 and 12 years old. (twins) Our household was very chaotic. I didn't have inner peace, I certainly wasn't a calm mother!
Around this time, my friend Kay, introduced me to an author, Jerry Jampolsky. His book, "Goodbye to Guilt," was instrumental in the person I am today. You could say I was a "crazy women" looking for a way to become a peaceful mother.
What stood out for me in his book is the following:
"Heaven can be thought of not as a place, but a state of mind. It is the experience of oneness with each other and God, of limitless peace, joy and love."
Then there was a chart:
HEAVEN ON EARTH
My copy of the book is worn, the pages are yellow and it has come apart in three places. The front cover has fallen off.
I still pull it off the shelf for "quick, pick me-up" or when I'm struggling to forgive someone. I would recommend Jerry's book to anyone who wants to become a better person by being more loving.
I need to warn…you may discover "heaven on earth."
You can purchase this book on Amazon. And I'm not making a dime on it.
Is there a book that has had a big impact on your life?
