AG Book Club :: Rising Strong

This month’s selection for the AG Book Club was Rising Strong by BrenĂ© Brown. To start things off, I just have to say that anytime I try to talk about this book, I end up sounding like this ::

But I really did find this book to be enormously helpful for providing a methodology for facing and processing the hard things in life. Whether it’s a personal failure, professional blunder, sickness or the suffering of someone you love, this book presents a framework for working through hardship.

Here’s my own review of the book ::

I recently read Emotionally Healthy Spirituality by Peter Scazzero, which is saying many of the same things but from a Christian perspective. Scazzero points to a similar method for facing your own demons, while adding in contemplative spirituality and the practice of spiritual disciplines. I highly recommend it as a supplement to Rising Strong.

If you’re interested in joining our book club here in Joplin, visit the Facebook page for more details. We’d love to have you!

Next month’s book is The Boys In The Boat, which received rave reviews last year and is written in the same style as Unbroken, a favorite here at AG Book Club. Can’t wait. :)

Happy Reading!
