    Life Learning and Insprirational

    I'm still in the middle of reading this book. I'm taking my time in ensuring that I take note of truly learn from what Judge Lynn Toler speaks of her experiences.

    I have been able to apply some of what I've read to my own life and I must say, I do feel a better person out of it.

    If you have things in your life history or present that you want to make a positive experience... then take a read... you won't be disappointed.
