12 Profound Books About Hope And Its Power

Learn the undeniable, almost magical power that hope holds.

Hope. What is it about that particular word and all that it represents that pushes people to give it all and then some in pursuit of whatever they are looking for, no matter how foolish or hopeless it all might seem.

Hope is something that has kept people going since pretty much the beginning of humanity and it will not stop anytime soon. The anecdotes narrated through the pages of these books can show you the power that a simple belief, however baseless, could carry on miraculous achievements.

#5 Broken Brain, Fortified Faith by Virginia Pillars

Broken Brain, Fortified Faith by Virginia Pillars Get this book or read more reviews of it by using the links below

I wrote a book about my journey through schizophrenia with our adult daughter. When she became ill, I had little hope. I didn’t know anyone who had this illness and went on to lead a productive life. It took many months of treatment and a lot of support, but our daughter made it to recovery. Today, she lives a life similar to many people her age. She lives in an apartment, works full-time, manages all of her business/medical affairs, and leads an active social life.

I suggest our story because it brings hope to other families who find themselves in a similar situation. Mental illness affects one in five people in a given year. Hope, along with education and treatment enables those affected to reach recovery.

Follow Your Detour is the perfect book for anyone experiencing the reality that life rarely goes according to plan. We’ve always been told to follow our dreams, but what happens when those dreams aren’t working out? Divorce? Personal struggles? Loss of a job or a loved one? We all run into a variety of dead ends in life.

While it can be tough to accept at first, the concept of a detour is, in my opinion, critical in life. It empowers you to shift your focus from those dead ends to embracing the opportunity to take an alternate path full of possibility.

No matter what you’re going through, Follow Your Detour will help you find courage, overcome your fears of uncertainty, and push forward instead of feeling stuck. It will also guide you in adopting a mindset that will help you change your perspective in order find the real you and discover the greatness that’s out there waiting for you.

Educational, inspirational, and motivational. A well-written journey through a dramatic life-changing experience that leaves readers with a positive outlook and practical techniques that will help you overcome your own life struggles.

The days immediately after that argument were probably the most difficult few days of our marriage. But it was a turning point for me. I had to take a hard look at my life and myself and decide whether I wanted to find a solution or wallow in my problems.

I combined everything I knew from traditional and nontraditional healing practices and I explored new paths and lifestyle changes to reduce stress and improve my life’s balance and overall wellness. I worked to bring more peace and calmness to my life through meditation. I defined my definite major purpose. I uncovered passions and spent more time focusing on the positive. As I focused on happiness, balance and joy showed up.
