Your Life. Live it. Love it. A Book Review – Engaged Marriage

Your Life. Live it. Love it. A Book Review

By Dustin | Book & Product Reviews

Your Life. Live it. Love it.I am really excited to share an excellent resource with you that is being launched today.  My friend Sherri Kruger just released her first e-book entitled Your Life. Live it. Love it. and I was lucky enough to get a sneak preview over the weekend.

After I read it (late into the night), I knew I had to write a review here on Engaged Marriage so that you wouldn’t miss the chance to check it out for yourself.

Who is Sherri Kruger?

Sherri is the creator of Serene Journey where she writes about “Simple Tips to Enjoy Life.”  She is also the lead writer and editor at Zen Family Habits, which is another excellent resource for all things family.

Although you won’t hear her talk about it much, Sherri happens to have a PhD in molecular genetics.  After spending years in the lab, she decided to refocus on her family and stay at home with her two boys.  Her e-book is not auto-biographical, but I felt a real connection with Sherri and her ability to enjoy the simple things in life in the pages of her work.

Even if you decide that the e-book is not for you, I’d encourage you to check out both of Sherri’s successful blogs.  If you like what we do here at Engaged Marriage, I’m confident that you’ll like Sherri and enjoy her work.

What is Your Life. Live it. Love it. All About?

I think the subtitle to Your Life. Live it. Love it. really says it all: “Hundreds of ideas for focusing on yourself, your relationships and the little things in life.”  That’s exactly what this book provides, and it is delivered in an easy-to-read (and hard to put down) style.

The 69-page e-book is divided into three sections:

  1. Focus on You
  2. Focus on Your Relationships
  3. Enjoy the Little Things

Although it is an electronic book that can be read on a computer or e-reader, I decided I would print it out for ease of reading in bed (I really need to buy an e-reader).  I figured I’d dog-ear the pages that I enjoyed the most for future reference since this is what I often do with traditional books.  Well, I ended up dog-earing more than half of the writings!

What Did I Enjoy the Most & Where Can You Learn More?

Personally, I loved every part of the last section on “Enjoying the Little Things” and I’ve asked my wife to give it a read because I think she’ll really enjoy the lessons related to “Focusing on You.”  I really expect that Your Life. Live it. Love it. will be a popular book that is read by many.  I found the concepts and tips to be broad in appeal, yet many touched me personally.

Since I can’t share everything that I enjoyed about the book, I thought I would simply list my favorite five chapters (which are similar in length to blog posts).  Here are my personal can’t-miss topics:

  • Stand Your Ground But Only On the Important Stuff – A practical way to solve common disagreements (like with your spouse).
  • The Grass is Always Greener Right Under Your Feet – An excellent lesson on contentment.
  • Gratitude Journal: 30 Days to Happiness – This section is pure gold!
  • 10 Ways to Feel Better in 60 Seconds or Less – I am keeping these two pages in my work bag for easy reference. 🙂
  • 10 Ways to Add a Spark to Your Relationship Today – The title says it all.

Sherri has an excellent summary of Your Life. Live it. Love it. that you can read by clicking on any of the links in this post.  You’ll find more information about what you’ll get when you buy the book, including a full table of contents.

Thank You

In parting, I’d just like to say thank you to Sherri for writing Your Life. Live it. Love it. and sharing it with me.  I took away some very meaningful lessons that have already helped me personally.  And I was challenged to take a fresh look at some areas of my life where I have struggled to find contentment and appreciation for all of God’s incredible blessings.

Please do me a favor and take a few minutes to read more about Your Life. Live it. Love it. and decide if it speaks to you.

P.S. – Sherri is offering an (awesome) 100% full-satisfaction, money-back guarantee so there’s really no risk in checking it out for yourself.
