Keys to Living Joyfully by Sheri Kaye Hoff

 keys-to-living-joyfully

Keys to Living Joyfully is an inspirational book on experiencing joy, peace, passion, and energy in daily life. It is designed to demonstrate the powerful roles of thoughts, action, and faith. The book is a merging of Sheri Kaye Hoff’s spiritual life and lifelong interests in leadership and motivation. The ideas presented in the book are techniques and processes that have worked for the author and clients. Foreword is written by Michele Caron, creator of MyLIfeCoach.com

The book, Keys to Living Joyfully, was born out of a heartfelt desire to share the keys that lead to living a transformational life. Ms. Hoff is a personal and executive coach working with individuals, small businesses, and corporations. Her words on faith are derived from her own Christian walk and spiritual self-discoveries. Her action steps are a mix of faith. love, leadership skills, and management experience. Chapters include topics such as: Is your heart thinking right? And how to tap into intrinsic motivation. This book, Keys to Living Joyfully, offers the techniques and insights that move people towards more peace, joy, energy, and passion in everyday life.

We all have good days and bad, ups and downs in our lives.  Some of us are able to push through and realize that each day is something that shouldn’t be taken for granted, but others struggle with this and need a reminder that you have to live each day to the fullest because you can’t change the past.  That is exactly who this book is written for (although I believe most people would be able to find it beneficial in one way or another).

I admit that I have not read a lot of books that deal with this – I learned long ago that each day is to be savored.  That’s not saying that I have the answers, not by a long shot.  But, what I did like about this book is that you were talking to someone that had suffered a tragic loss in their life and had actually gone through the exercises/steps herself.  This made it much more believable and knowing that these had worked for her I think will make it easier for others to pick this book up and use it as a means to find joy again, if it is lacking.

Sheri Kaye Hoff resides in Parker, CO with her husband and three children. She is a Life Coach and owner of the Sheri K Hoff International Coaching Company. She teaches college classes as an adjunct faculty member and has earned her Master of Arts in Organizational Management. Her new book, Keys to Living Joyfully,offers a way of living a meaningful, successful and joy filled life.

Ms. Hoff is a personal and executive life coach. Spirituality is a vital part of her life’s work. Prayer and meditation are integral pieces of her daily ritual, which enables her to pursue her life’s passions and live a truly joyful life.

Her words on faith are derived from her own Christian walk and spiritual self-discoveries. Her action steps mix faith and years of leadership training, mentoring, and management. Sheri Kaye Hoff suffered the tragic death of her younger brother when she was a teenager and struggled for years to rediscover the capacity to feel joy and to enjoy her successes. She has a heart felt desire to pass on her knowledge and discoveries that have led to a truly transformational life. Ms. Hoff publishes a free weekly inspiration newsletter, Coach Sheri’s Weekly Inspiration Tips. The Sheri K Hoff International Coaching Company also offers:

Montana Creeds: Tyler by Linda Lael Miller

 mc-tyler1

Whether winning championship belt buckles or dealing with Hollywood types for endorsement deals, former rodeo star Tyler Creed can handle anything.  Except standing on the same patch of land as his estranged brothers.  Yet here they are in Stillwater Springs, barely talking but trying to restore the old Creed ranch – and family.

Lily Kenyon knows all about family estrangements and secrets.  The single mom has come home to set things right, to put down roots fro her daughter.  What she doesn’t expect is Tyler Creed, whom she’s loved since childhood.  Now the handsome, stubborn cowboy who left home to seek his fortune just might find it was always under the Montana sky

 

Lily Kenyon left Stillwater Springs years ago, but has returned to help her father recover from a heart attack, and to try and make a fresh start.  Being a single mom isn’t easy, but she feels that Stillwater Springs might be the place for her to start a new life with her daughter, a place that has memories, both good and bad.

The Creed brothers have had problems, but nothing will keep them off of their ranch, trying to restore their family bond.  And Tyler is no different.  A former rodeo star, he is arrogant and thinks that people should look up to him for all of his accomplishments.  What he doesn’t expect is to have Lily Kenyon back in her life.  The history they have hangs heavy between the two – will they rekindle a flame that they thought went out years ago?

This is the third book in the Montana Creeds series and it is certainly not my last book by Linda.  Ms. Miller has such an excellent way of writing her characters to make them jump off of the page, and the emotion that they exhibit is exceptional!  Watching these characters try and overcome their past and rooting them on was a joy.  I would highly recommend this book!

Montana Creeds: Logan by Linda Lael Miller

 mc-logan

Descendants of the legendary McKettrick family, the Creeds are renowned in Stillwater Springs, Montana—for raising hell…

After years of wandering, Logan Creed, a cowboy with a dusty law degree, has returned home. To put down roots, to restore his family’s neglected ranch…to have kids of his own proudly bearing the Creed name.

Divorced mom Briana Grant has heard the stories about her gorgeous neighbor. So Logan’s kindness with her young boys is a welcome surprise, especially when her ex reappears. And when an unknown enemy vandalizes her home, Logan shows Briana—and the folks of Big Sky country—just what he’s made of.

This is the first book that I have read by Linda Lael Millerand let me tell you…wow!  After making money with his self-help legal service, Logan Creed decides to return to his family ranch in Stillwater Springs.  The ranch has fallen into a state of disrepair since the death of his father, and even though there has been a falling out with his brothers, Dylan and Tyler, Logan wants to go back and bring the ranch back to the state it was in years prior.

What he doesn’t expect to encounter are Briana Grant and her two young sons, Josh and Alec.  After leaving the ranch to pursue his dreams, Dylan offered the use of his brothers’ house to Briana after her husband runs off leaving her to fend for herself.  The chemistry between Dylan and Briana is immediate, and the relationship that forms between them is as good as any romance that I have ever read.

The thing I find so extraordinary about the writing is that all of the characters are dysfunctional in some way, yet they find the person that best compliments them and fills the void in a way that is desperately needed.  This is definitely not the last book that I will read by this wonderful author!

Beat the Reaper by Josh Bazell Audio Giveaway

beat-the-reaper

Thanks to Anna Balasi of Hachette Book Group I will be giving away 3 copies of this book (it will be an audiobook).  To enter, please leave a comment but remember it will only be open to residents of the US and Canada and we will not be able to ship to P.O. Boxes.  This contest will end January 24th.  Good Luck!

About the book:

Dr. Peter Brown is an intern at Manhattan’s worst hospital, with a talent for medicine, a shift from hell, and a past he’d prefer to keep hidden. Whether it’s a blocked circumflex artery or a plan to land a massive malpractice suit, he knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men.

Pietro “Bearclaw” Brnwna is a hitman for the mob, with a genius for violence, a well-earned fear of sharks, and an overly close relationship with the Federal Witness Relocation Program. More likely to leave a trail of dead gangsters than a molecule of evidence, he’s the last person you want to see in your hospital room.

Nicholas LoBrutto, aka Eddy Squillante, is Dr. Brown’s new patient, with three months to live and a very strange idea: that Peter Brown and Pietro Brnwa might-just might-be the same person …

Now, with the mob, the government, and death itself descending on the hospital, Peter has to buy time and do whatever it takes to keep his patients, himself, and his last shot at redemption alive. To get through the next eight hours-and somehow beat the reaper.

Spattered in adrenaline-fueled action and bone-saw-sharp dialogue, BEAT THE REAPER is a debut thriller so utterly original you won’t be able to guess what happens next, and so shockingly entertaining you won’t be able to put it down.
