Title: Make It Happen: A Guide to Happiness for LDS SinglesAuthor: Kylee ShieldsRelease Date: October 2012Publisher: Walnut Springs PressGenre: LDS Self Help
Being single is something I happen to know a lot about. First, as a single young adult, and now as a single, divorced, mom. Though both experiences have been different, there has also been many of the same feelings attached to these different times in my life. Kylee Shields book, Make It Happen, A Guide To Happiness for LDS Singles, could just be called, "A Guide to Happiness for ALL People." I was pleasantly surprised, and quite pleased, to see that this book wasn't just another dating book about how to win a spouse. This book centers on becoming the best person that you can be, and in turn this will bring about happiness in your life, single or not.
One of my favorite aspects of the book came at the end of each chapter. After a great topic, like Validation, or A Matter of Heart, Kylee leaves the reader with "Action Questions". These questions help the reader focus on the topic just discussed and how to implement these ideas into their life. I found this a powerful aspect of the book, where I stopped and reflected on my life and considered how I could make some good changes.
Kylee shares such wonderful and rich stories from her life.You can't help but be lifted up and inspired to change your life for the better. The title of the book, Make It Happen, exudes with such positive energy, you can't help but be enthused to make good things happen in your life. I recommend this book to readers of all ages, teens, young adults, older adults...you name it! Everyone who reads this book, will come away with ideas of how to make happiness a part of their everyday life.
I am so pleased to share with you a guest post by Kylee!
