“The Messy Joys of Being Human: A Guide to Risking Change and Becoming Happier reads like having a conversation with an old friend. The writing prompts are evocative and inspiring; you could come back again and again as life evolves. Read certain parts or the whole book. A book that you will find yourself reading again and again. The Messy Joys of Being Human is an insightful and meaningful read that is full of humor and life lessons for living in the present.  A book that many will relate to and enjoy reading.” –Lovely Loveday


“The thing about self-help books is that they do not offer the quick fix. Some readers take it to be instant redemption, but rather, they are just a nudge in a direction that when pursued could bring about change.

I highlighted this book so much that I believe it’s got to be the most highlighted book in my Kindle Library.

The author looks at why we worry, how we feel, how negative perceptions can cause us to think and feel less about ourselves. She also explores faith drawing from experience and literature to share insights.

The writing is simple and makes for easy reading.

I loved the take-away questions at the end of every chapter that make you pause to reflect on your life in relation to the chapter you’ve read.” –Nilichosoma
