My Favorite Book?

I'm not sure I have a favorite book.

Unless Dr. Seuss' "Oh, The Places You'll Go" counts.

There are definite Lucado and Beth Moore titles that I highly recommend. And, of the four books I'm reading right now, "The Circle Maker" tops the charts.

But, a favorite book? That stumped me. In fact, my husband says he's never heard me utter that phrase. It took me more than a minute to think this through, but I kept coming back to a book that's been on my shelf since 1998.

Don't Sweat the Small Stuff and it's all small stuffHave you read it? "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff...and it's all small stuff" crept into my life when I was sweating everything. This tiny book has 100 ways to minimize stress and maximize real living, and while it's not a Bible study, I'd use it as a part of my devotions--there are a number of chapters with relevant verses scrawled at the end.

With chapter titles like, "Practice Humility," "Choose Your Battles Wisely," and "Repeat to Yourself: Life Isn't an Emergency," you'll understand why I've held on to it for so long. Give it a read and let me know what you think. I'll leave you with this snippet from page 20:

"...the purpose of life isn't to get it all done, but to enjoy each step along the way and live a life filled with love..."
