Two Books That Changed My Life

Tis’ the season of giving and I wanted to share with all of you two books that have positively impacted my life and that I love to pass on to my family and friends.


  • Way of the Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman
  • The Mighty Atom by Ed Spielman

These books have allowed me to live my life happier, more balanced and healthier is so many ways. I’ve always believed that books are an amazing way to learn lessons and grow the mind. I hope these two books can have the same impact on your life as they’ve had on mine! What books to do you enjoying gifting during this time of the year? I’m always looking for new books!
