Summary

Already an internet phenomenon, these wise and insightful lessons by popular newspaper columnist and Pulitzer Prize finalist Regina Brett will make you see the possibilities in your life in a whole new way.

When Regina Brett turned 50, she wrote a column on the 50 lessons life had taught her. She reflected on all she had learned through becoming a single parent, looking for love in all the wrong places, working on her relationship with God, battling cancer and making peace with a difficult childhood. It became one of the most popular columns ever published in the newspaper, and since then the 50 lessons have been emailed to hundreds of thousands of people.
Brett now takes the 50 lessons and expounds on them in essays that are deeply personal. From "Don't take yourself too seriously-Nobody else does" to "Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift," these lessons will strike a chord with anyone who has ever gone through tough times--and haven't we all?

Give it a chance

A lot of good advice, some tender moments and some laugh out loud moments. Glad I picked it up.

Held my attention

what a wonderful book and Regina Brett could not have narrated it any better then she had. I felt like she was sitting in front of me as we chatted over coffee. It makes you want to listen to it over and take notes. So true to anyone's life that it will get you to tell your family and friends about it.......I DID! Loved It.

Life Changing

What did you love best about God Never Blinks?

The entire thing - I needed to hear every page of this book

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and over and over again even though I normally wouldn't do that.

Any additional comments?

I think everyone should read this book

Not sure how to take this book

I always wondered what a liberal view of God may be like and this is definitely it. I stopped listening half way through as her points and thoughts seem conflicted with her reality of God. I do not recommend this book.

Some good/ some bad.

Would you try another book from Regina Brett and/or Regina Brett?

Nah, too religious for me.

Did God Never Blinks inspire you to do anything?

I took a few solid nuggets from it. Worth a read. I wish I could have skipped some of the overly religious stuff though.
