Just Think: Nourish Your Mind to Feed Your Soul

Portada
Nancy J. Nordenson, 2003 - 189 pàgines
Women's minds are often consumed with details about day-to-day living. Call the dentist, pick up milk, pay the bills, and put the laundry in the dryer--and that's all during lunch break. In Just Think, Nancy Nordenson encourages women to increase their vision and expectations of how to use their minds in and beyond everyday life. She explains how to engage ideas, plans, questions, study, dreams, and more--thoughts that feed the soul and lead to growth, that bring us closer to wisdom and make life richer and more expansive. Just Think is packed with inspiring quotes and thought-provoking concepts that are worthy of savoring one at a time. It guides women to ask good questions and wrestle with difficult ones, become more observant of the "little things," take note of their own growth, seek truth and enhance their faith, interact with books and people, and overall, continue to learn and prepare for new opportunities ahead.
