Author and blogger TaRessa Stovall is a rabble-rouser in the fight against racism, so it’s no surprise that the most recent book that changed her life is one that changed her way of thinking.
What is the book that changed your life?
THE POWER OF RECEIVING: A Revolutionary Approach to Giving Yourself the Life You Want and Deserve by Amanda Owen.
Here is the Amazon description of the book:
Amanda Owen’s The Power of Receiving: A Revolutionary Approach to Giving Yourself the Life You Want and Deserve presents a new paradigm for the 21st century—a philosophy that values receiving as much as giving and demonstrates that giving is enhanced when receiving is embraced. With the formula: Believe + Receive = Achieve, The Power of Receiving presents a wholly original yet easily accessible road map for people to follow, showing readers how to restore balance to their over-extended lives and attract the life they desire and deserve.
Inspiring stories are featured about people who have experienced life-altering results after becoming skilled Receivers, including Ken who regained his hearing after a devastating hearing-loss, Julie who met the man she would later marry, and Don who received an extra $1,000 a month in his pay check.
Based on over 20 years of research into the nature of receptivity and its link to manifestation, The Power of Receiving offers a unique vision for anyone seeking to create greater reciprocity in their relationships and more harmony and abundance in their lives.
WHY IT IMPACTED ME:
I was coming out of years in the middle of the Sandwich Generation–caring for my elderly mother while single-parenting two teens, a big, high-maintenance dog, working a demanding job and authoring books. I was also made aware that I was a chronic over-giver. the more I learned about that dynamic, the more I realized that I needed help to recover, to heal and to grow past that rut.
I slowly learned to stay in my own lane, to set boundaries (a skill often missing from us folks who have survived child sexual abuse), and to strive for much healthier and more productive BALANCE in my life. This little book and the life-changing concepts within it have basically been my blueprint and bible for many years now. And all of it works!
I now describe myself as an over-giving people pleaser in recovery, I have moved into the Empty Nest years and strive daily to apply the wisdom and lessons in The Power of Receiving. It is a book that EVERY woman needs to read, and many men as well.
