 Focus on the Good Stuff!

Your mind is a powerful tool. What you choose to think about and focus on today can impact the rest of your life.

So take forty days to get your thoughts rolling in the right direction—to help you reach your goals and live the successful, purposeful life God has planned just for you. When you follow this forty-day game plan, you will start erasing weak, unhelpful thoughts and replacing them with strong, productive thoughts.

 My Review:

The basic premise of this book is taken from Philippians 4:8 bible verse."Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." This version was written specially with teens in mind. The content material is good. There are 40 devotionals. Each devotional has several parts. Work it, think this/not that, talk it, stick it thought of the day, and pray it. The topics include free will, creation, purity, compassion, goal setting, imagination, self discipline, and thankfulness. The only thing I did not like about the book is the print was a little small and the size of the book itself is not full size. It is pocket size which teens might like. This would be a good book for the age range. Recommended.

That seems like a nice book for kids that age; it would be nice for them to start thinking positive from a very early age.
