Although other reviews on this site make the argument that Robin is only coming from a place of wealth and prestige, I must say that I got exactly the opposite point of view. She describes coming from a home where there was little money and that this was the case for her husband as well. She explains how they were not a wealthy young couple and that because of that background, there is a great deal of appreciation and humility. I felt like this was someone I could easily become friends with in that we are both southern ladies with strong women in our families. It was a very interesting read and I was sad that it ended. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, of course, but I think that a negative review of this book would be coming from someone with a bad attitude. As the title implies, this is from a woman's "heart" and it seems to me a very mature and wise one at that!

I recommend this book for all women. It's a inspiring book! Robin shares little stories of her life as a mother, daughter, wife, and sister and friend. She emphasizes her choices and the fact that life is all about choices and you can help create the life you want. The life you were born to live, it helps to open your eyes to your responsibilities for yourself and your family. In my opinion she is a very inspiring woman, and I highly recommend this book for others to read. Uplifting!

You don't have to be a great writer or even have special knowledge in a field to write a book. Robin writes about herself and her feelings. How can anyone critize that? I find her to be a strong-spirited woman. She encourages women, in a world that would rather see us unnoticed and unappricated. I loved her book.

Robin takes many subjects in life- disappointment, empty-nest, joys, loss, and hindsight and shares it like a girlfriend. I loved this book and her insight...my husband even read all of it and loved it...and he doesn't read anything.

This book was hard for me to put down. One because of Robin's deep belief in God and how He helped her. I also loved her as she stood up for herself. As I was growing up, I had a very domineering father and then married someone who was very dominating. I was not encouraged to think for myself and know that I had contributions to make to the world. Robin learned this lesson early. Good for her and I am glad she shared it. She is sharing what I have felt and learned to do later in life. I am buying this for other women.

I was not certain how much of an impact this book would have on me considering that I am not married or have children. However, it was sooo extremely refreshing, engaging and empowering. The power of choices is something more women need to embrace and enjoy.

I could not put this book down! Robin's positive attitude about everything is contagious! I feel as though I know her. She brings a zest and love to everything she does. I totally agree about women being the heart of the home, but never actually read it in print. She brings to life so much of what I feel about being a wife and mother in this day and age. Thank you, Robin. You are a gift. You especially hit it home when you described your family member being negative to you, and you choosing not to own her feeling about you. I have had those people in my life, and you have helped me. Thank you so much!

I found this book to be inspiring. Never did I imagine Robin had experienced so many difficult times during her life. This book is one every woman (especially those with children) should read or listen to. I listened to the entire book on a road trip which made the trip go by so fast. I highly recommend this book.

I am almost finished with it. This is a great book for any woman. What an amazing woman Robin is. I really feel this is a life changing book. It gives insight into women as well as men(including Dr. Phil).

I have to admit I cried while listening to these cds in the van while on my road trip. They are truly an inspiration for any woman struggling with choices & striving for perfection in her life & marriage. I highly recommend for any woman between 15 and 60.

Robin, please seek the help of a qualified editor. Also, when you decide to write an inspirational book again, think about how you can really inspire others - rather than yourself.

Robin doesn't set out to do anything but be true to herself and in so doing this she shows the way that a gracious and beautiful woman can change the world one moment at a time. I found myself feeling like I have found the sister and friend that I have longed for and the the mother and grandmother that I have lost. She gives me focus, direction, and the sense that every little thing I do matters.

In the beginning of the story,I could relate to a certain degree, but somewhere I got lost, the xmas silly jacket? and she still wore it? The newlyweds story, struggles, lack of money, babys, sickness, all that, I felt, was real, later, the story turned more into play dumb and you will get want.

I love Robin- I am 21 and a newlywed and she is my idol! This book truly touched my life and yes I have $35 monogrammed towels and my husband would do the same thing, I dont think she was out of touch with the real world one bit. I wish she would write another book, I was anticipating this ones arrival and now that Ive read it I dont know what to do- read it again I guess. Anyone who really values their family and making their lives comfortable along with really knowing themselves will love this book. I recommend it 100%.

I absolutely loved this book. This isn't a book about a spoiled woman living in the lap of luxury. This is the story of a woman making choices in her own life. She helps us all remember that at our very core we are a Women! She reminds us we need to take time to appreciate that and value it. She helps us savor the every day moments of our lives. She helps us celebrate being wives, mothers, sisters, daughter-in-laws, and a child of God. This book is truly a celebration of being a woman. Some say this isn't profound, maybe not for them but for me it was truly an affirmation of who I am. This book was like reading a letter from a sister and I can't wait to share this book with my daughter when she is older because her life is a series of choices and I want her to see the power she will have. I loved this book Robin and can't wait for another!

I am curious as to what types of degrees Robin has. Nothing offered in her book is a great revelation. Given the right circumstances and money we could all do things to make our lives happier and easier. I am happy that she is where she is but there are still alot of us out here in the real world.

I found this book to be a great inspiration! Yes, there are examples in the book that are not on my same wealth level, but Robin emphasizes her sarcasm to explain that she knows she lives a different life than most. I was glad to read real life examples of relationships with Robin and how she has handled them. I love how she explains that everyone has a choice in life, and it is up to you as to how you will react in your situation. This book was a breath of fresh air!

This book was outstanding. It appears too many readers focused on the financial aspect of the book! I feel these were used only as examples of situations in Robins life where she made a choice to respond and how these choices affected her (the theme of the book). Be an active participant in your life. Of course her situations are different than ours, she leads a different life than anyone else. We are faced with the same types of situations the details are just altered to fit our own unique lifestyle. Overall the message was loud and clear that if you are not happy with an aspect of your life you are the only one who can change it. Make choices that are right for you and choose to surround yourself with people who make you a better person.

This book did not inspire me. I think it might be a book for married, wealthy women. I found myself analyzing the author's reactions to the people around her and wondering if she has moved so far away from real life that she can't relate to her audience at all. When her husband puts a $35 monogrammed towel on the garage floor while fixing the car, she says that at least he did give her a nice, clean thick towel to lie down on. I guess she can afford to buy many more monogramed towels. I also think she should have set out clothes for her son, like she does for Phillip, rather than allow him to go to school out of the dress code and then blame the vice-principal for disciplining him. But, with all of her pride regarding her assertiveness, she didn't seem to be able to communicate with her parents about the alcoholism and what it did to their family. There are many examples that just didn't seem to relate to the life of a person who doesn't have the clout to get things she wants, send her kids to private schools or afford to get the best medical care. On the other hand, it was an easy read, a nice tribute to her own family and she does give good advice of choosing a spouse.
