Inside My Heart - Book Review

In Inside My Heart, Choosing to Live with Passion and Purpose, Robin McGraw, wife of Dr. Phil, shows how important she believes it is to make your own choices and be who you are meant to be, while she shows at the same time how wonderful she thinks it is to be a full time, devoted wife and mother. This is a balance which I think bears clarifying - and she does this beautifully.

"I have absolutely, positively got to be one of the most blessed women in the world," she says in her Acknowledgments. "I choose the word blessed rather than lucky because I believe that God has watched over me, every step of the way, each and every day."

This doesn't mean she was born to an easy life or that things always went smoothly, as you will see if you read her story.

Some of the things that have happened to me that most people would say are very bad, have turned out to be blessings. These things are not without heartache still but I see clearly why God arranged things in this way.

God does work in mysterious ways, doesn't He? What is it they say, "He allows evil in order to bring about greater good"? I've seen that, too. Thank you for sharing.
