One Minute Success Secrets for Women by Gail M. Hayes

This is just what I needed to help me get up on cold winter mornings! Full of inspirational Biblical quotes and positive interpretations of them, this book will help readers not only get out of bed but get through difficult times in their lives.

Like most self-help books, this is designed to help people develop confidence, achieve their dreams, and have a cheerful attitude.  However, I liked the Christian emphasis on being friendly, kind, forgiving and making a decision to 'serve the army of light'.  Many of these books concentrate on helping people improve their 'self-esteem' in a selfish way - sometimes even by ruthless means.  This one is designed to assist readers become better people through faith and will-power.

My favourite quotation from One Minute Success Secrets for Women is: 'This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.'  Hayes's interpretation concentrates on the importance of counting one's blessings and being thankful.  I love this quote, although it may be difficult to rejoice on a cold, miserable and rainy day!
