Books that have inspired, educated and enlightened me along the journey of life:

The Road Less Traveled by M. Scott Peck –I read this book in my late twenties, and it changed my life.  Perhaps one of the most compelling ideas in this book is that once we acknowledge and accept that life is painful, we can move on and more easily focus on living a fulfilling happy life.

Eastern Body, Western Mind by Anodea Judith – A unique combination of Eastern and Western theories of psychology and spirituality.  It helped me understand my family and why five children growing up under one roof with the same parents can be so different.

Travelling at the Speed of Love by Sonia Choquette – One of my favorite chapters is on grace, the spirit of love, of being in the moment, free of fear.

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho – An engaging fable that leads us on a journey “To realize one’s destiny is a person’s only obligation.”

The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari by Robin S. Sharma – A fable about fulfilling your dreams and reaching your destiny.

The Saint, The Surfer, and the CEO by Robin S. Sharma – A story about living your hearts desires.
