    Former QVC host shares stories from her own life and how to make a difference in the lives of others

    Whenever I watched Lisa Mason when she was on QVC, I was always impressed by her spirit. Whether she was affectionately calling a viewer "sugar" or hosting a four hour Diamonique marathon, her genuine nature radiated through the TV screen. That's why I was interested in picking up a copy of her book, "Big Life Lessons from That Still, Small Voice." Lisa is so much more than a salesperson for a cable retailer. She's the daughter of a Baptist minister. She's an Emmy winner for her work on an AIDS documentary. She's an engaging, in-demand motivational speaker. And it is a treat to read how she relates stories from her own life and how she was influenced by listening to God's gentle stirrings in her heart.

    What sets Lisa apart is that she pays attention not just to the little things in life, but also how they combine to create a major moment. Throughout the book, her message is - do not fear change, it is inevitable. The key is to be conscious of the inner promptings of our heart, mind and soul. We ignore them at our peril.

    I really have a new-found respect for Lisa after learning about her roots. With a father as an itinerant preacher, she continually moved throughout her childhood from small Southern towns to an overseas military base. The ability to adjust to new surroundings shows a strength of character and a defined sense of self that she possessed from a young age. Years later at a charity luncheon, Lisa begins talking with a woman who grew up in a privileged Connecticut environment and attended Ivy League schools. When asked about her own background, Lisa didn't feel comfortable sharing the details of her upbringing. But I'm glad that she overcame that reticence and as a writer was able to open up and share details about her past.

    What really comes across is Lisa's honesty. She flunked out of college. She worked as a waitress. She made mistakes in her relationships with others. She suffered from depression. She did not write a book as an ego trip. Instead, she fills the pages with heartfelt emotion.

    When filming a documentary she met a young girl dying from AIDS, but no one knew how she contracted the disease. In order to pinpoint the cause, both of her parents were tested and the results came back positive. The entire family succumbed to AIDS. Despite the fact that Lisa won an Emmy for her work, she relates that when she looks at the statue it represents nothing but devastating loss.

    Another touching passage involves being stood up by a literary agent in a New York City deli. Feeling like she wasted an entire day, she boarded a train to return home. It was during that journey that she encountered a severely disabled, disfigured child and her mother. Upon disembarking, Lisa noticed that they did not speak English and appeared lost and alone on the station platform. Instead of walking away, she took the initiative, picked up their bags and helped them find the customer service desk. She even drove them to the airport. After all of this, she didn't receive a pat on the back or an effusive show of gratitude. Instead she knew deep down that she accomplished what she was supposed to do that day.

    These slice of life vignettes are divided into 10 brief chapters (the entire book totals 115 pages). Each concludes with a life lesson, and some feature a biblical quotation. The book is not heavy on Christianity, but it does provide the framework for the overall theme.

    Engaging and Inspiring: A Lovely Read

    Bite by bite, chapter by chapter, this book nourishes and satisfies. Ms Mason is open, honest and vulnerable as she shares experiences and the profound truths we can learn from them when we stop, look and listen. These life lessons are the very stuff that brings meaning and beauty to life. I felt invited to discern my own lessons or remember my own experiences which point to the truth of the life lessons Ms Mason articulated. Reading the book was a lovely experience.

    A precious must read!

    I just read your book Lisa! It exceeded my expectations, which were high to begin with. What a precious text you put together. I highly recommend it to everyone, since many of us probably have been or will be in similar circumstances and can definitely learn to be better persons from the lessons in your book. Love you Lisa!

    Enjoyed reading!

    Lisa was funny, educational, heartwarming, not overwhelming on her proyection of her faith. I honestly enjoyed reading her book and did learn a few things on the way. I am open minded about how other people look at life. I would recommended to people that love learning something new from the happy and not so happy experiences in life.

    Highly Recommended - A Must Read!

    Though a short book, it is packed with wise advice. Lisa Mason's prose is easy and enjoyable to read. I hope Ms. Mason continues to write for she has a gift. :)

    Inspirational!

    Lisa is open, honest, and vulnerable. We all have those life lessons and "lightbulb moments," and hopefully, we all learn from them as Lisa has. I bought 5 copies of this book, and everyone to whom I have given one (from my 22 yr old son to my 58 yr old brother) have thoroughly enjoyed reading it - multiple times. My only complaint is that I wanted more to read!

    Beautiful inspirational read!

    I found this book to be very inspirational to me. I am a chronically ill single mom of two college aged children, and this book made me laugh, cry, and some of it had similarities to my own life. i believe it is a book that everyone can relate to in some manner or another. this book will be at my bedside, as i have already bookmarked several lessons that i know i will be reading over and over for the rest of my life. i am at a point in my life right now where my faith and inspiration together with my beautiful kids are in the forefront of my life, although even if you not religious, i recommend this book to you also. Brava Lisa Mason for an excellent read that has made a difference in my life.!

    Warm, honest, and inspiring - couldn't put it down!

    Sometimes we all need a nudge to remind us of the things that are important in life. This little book helps us to remember that our journey is full of lessons, and if we listen with our hearts God will show us what we need to learn. No preaching, no attempts at conversion to the author's religion, only the promise that God is always working in our lives. If we pay attention, as the author has, we can learn and grow from both our successes and our failures. Her stories are very real and very honest, and the lessons in each, are powerful and universal. Highly recommend!
