God Never Blinks: 50 Lessons for Life’s Little Detours Hardcover
by Regina Brett (Author)

Already an internet phenomenon, these wise and insightful lessons by popular newspaper columnist and Pulitzer Prize finalist Regina Brett will make you see the possibilities in your life in a whole new way.

When Regina Brett turned 50, she wrote a column on the 50 lessons life had taught her. She reflected on all she had learned through becoming a single parent, looking for love in all the wrong places, working on her relationship with God, battling cancer and making peace with a difficult childhood. It became one of the most popular columns ever published in the newspaper, and since then the 50 lessons have been emailed to hundreds of thousands of people.

Brett now takes the 50 lessons and expounds on them in essays that are deeply personal. From “Don’t take yourself too seriously-Nobody else does” to “Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift,” these lessons will strike a chord with anyone who has ever gone through tough times–and haven’t we all?

“Regina Brett’s book, God Never Blinks, provides practical insights that can change the world.” –Deepak Chopra, Author, The Ultimate Happiness Prescription

This book presents 50 life lessons that the author brings forth through experiences, revelations, and emotions. The writing is open, honest, and heartfelt. As I read through the book, I resonated with several of the stories, was touched by many, and did not (at this time) identify with some of the stories. My approach was reading one or maybe two lessons and setting the book down. My suggestion… read and absorb the experiences, take away what you need, and leave the rest.

The lessons are simple, very easy and digestible reading. I’ve seen some reviews scoff at the simplicity and complain about the lack of cookbook-like steps on how the readers should fix their life. This author does not presume to know how to fix someone else’s life. She relates in a brutally open and honest fashion her experiences, her feelings, and what she took from them. We, you, all of us are so different, and so much the same… we hurt, we react, we need… so much. There isn’t a book to fix that (well, for some the bible fills that space). This book, this experience is a sharing of life and, if you walk with this author through hers, perhaps you can take some of her insights and apply them into your life. It is that simple… and that beautiful.

Take away what you need, leave the rest.
