Your Bouquet Of Beautiful Things - Giving The Gift Of You

Your Bouquet Of Beautiful Things:
Giving The Gift Of You

available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble

Your Bouquet of Beautiful Things combines memoir, tested principles, and story-telling to create a spirit-changing 27-day program that will help you develop the Fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Together, they represent the bouquet of beautiful things in each soul, and are how we measure the meaning of our life.

In this book, Marta shares the wisdom of a lifetime in which she has been blessed with more wonderful experiences than she could hope for—along with losses and betrayals she never saw coming—to let you know you are the gift of life, and your greatest moments will come from giving the gift of you.

Your Bouquet Of Beautiful Things is arranged for maximum appeal, containing stories that are laugh-out-loud funny and heart-wrenching. Each chapter will nourish the soul and document the success of her teachings. A follow-up to her Independent Publisher award-winning debut, The Courage to be Brilliant, this new book debuted at #8 on the Amazon Self Help list, and features a foreword by design superstar Barbara Barry, and personal stories from philanthropist Valerie Sobel and internationally renowned artist Ashley Collins.

Marta Monahan's Your Bouquet of Beautiful Things inspires and motivates me. I enjoy her passionate writings as much as two of my all-time favorites, Man's Search for Meaning by Vilztor Frankl and The Road Less Traveled by Scott Pect.

There is a Buddhist saying that all know the way, but few actually walk it. I was the exception to that rule. I did not have the way until Marta Monahan showed it to me. Her lessons have made me wiser, and I have found a contentment I lost many years ago. I believe everyone will benefit significantly from her teachings.
