It’s my HONOR to review inspirational and motivational books on my self help and inspirational blog. It’s a beautiful way to connect authors to readers. Why is this so important? A recent, wonderful, book – “Done With the Crying” served as an excellent reminder. When you do something for as long as I’ve written and published Self Help Daily, you tend to take things for granted. You even have moments when you wonder, “Does all of this work make any difference whatsoever?”
After I published my Done With the Crying review, I heard from so many heart-broken parents who were buried under the weight of this particular (unimaginable) pain. The sentiments from these individuals had recurring themes…
- “I didn’t know there were others like me!”
- “I NEED this book!”
- “This author and her book are an answer to my prayers.”
- “Someone understands this horrible, horrible pain.”
- “I’m not alone!”
Each comment filled my eyes with tears but my heart with bittersweet joy. These individuals now realize that they most certainly are NOT alone. Others not only understand their pain, they share their pain.
When you’re hurting, the knowledge that you are not alone is like a salve. It soothes the pain, somehow, and the response from these parents has been palpable.
While I cannot identify with the pain of a child turning their back on you, I can imagine it. The problem is, I turn my back on the feeling as soon as I imagine it. It is unbearable. I am so thankful that Sheri McGregor has written a book and created a community (RejectedParents.net) where parents can help bear one another’s pain and offer comfort, understanding, and hope – something no one should ever live without.

Inspirational Book Reviews on Self Help Daily
This experience has awakened a passion within me to connect more authors with readers who need to hear their message. I am currently looking for more books that can inspire, encourage, and minister to others.
The type of inspirational books I’m most interested in are…
- Spiritual books and Christian-Themed Books – these can be personal stories, Bible guides, Spiritual Topics, etc.
- Personal Stories that Can Touch Others who find themselves in your shoes.
The types of inspirational books I’m NOT remotely interested in are…
- books filled with anger and hate – there’s more than enough of these in the world
- books that deny God
I do, of course, still read and review “Self Help,” “Self Growth,” and “Self Improvement” books. I am simply filled with a greater sense of passion and excitement for inspirational books.
If you have an inspirational book you’d like me to review, please contact me at joitsigers @ gmail.com (without the spaces, of course!).
Thanks so much!
