First To Forty
Rating: 4 / 5
Books that you can dip into for inspiration are worth their weight in gold in times of stress. Knowing someone else has been there before and can encourage you is often enough to keep you from feeling overwhelmed by life. First To Forty is 40 short inspirational pieces of prose and poetry about life, seen through the eyes of young mother of four, Rebecca Moore.
It is an unashamedly Christian book as Moore references the Bible frequently, but she teams it with secular writing that can inspire and move us. Moore is a natural storyteller with obvious empathy for other women, for whom she has written this book.
It’s a great book to pick up and read a short chapter which empowers you to continue on with your day. This is an ideal book to have at easy reach when life throws you the occasional curve ball.
