The book is divided into three parts: Why Mornings?, Your Morning Routine Blueprint and Your Morning Routine Toolkit. The main point is getting ourselves focus on what is important and how to prioritize your life. Her three-minute suggestion starts off as such: read/memorize/pray Psalm 143:8 to looking at your calendar to see what is going on today and lastly to drink a glass of water

Granted this seems simple but doing it on a regular basis can take some doing. Now these are not set in stone, use the things that work for you for your three-minute moment.

I did enjoy reading this book. While parts of the book did not apply to me there was enough there that I could try to work on in my life and with my family. It is a quick read but keep a marker, pen or a notebook near by for you will want to take notes or use a marker on sections of this book. What was really nice was sections of the book listed questions and a place to write down the answers.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

The book review for today is “Think Of A Number” by John Verdon. It falls in the genre of action, mystery and drama.

Our main character is David Gurney who is a former homicide cop but now is an investigative consultant. He is supposed to be in retirement with his wife living the good life. Until an old acquaintance, Mellery, contacts him needing help.

His friend has been receiving poems. But what is unnerving is he was asked to think of a number. By some way some how the villain has guessed what the number is. No one knows how this can be. Especially since the number means nothing to Mellery. The letters continue to come. Soon, the killings start to occur. Even though his marriage is on uneven ground and his wife wants him to not get involved he can’t help it.

Even though he is retired you can’t take the cop out of the man, David enjoys the hunt, the figuring out the madness and catching a killer. But things get personal when the killer threatens to kill him. David has to do what he has done so well before, find this killer before it is too late.

I loved this book, I couldn’t put it down. I had to know what was going to happen next.
