Review - God Never Blinks by Regina Brett
Title: God Never Blinks: 50 Lessons for Life's Little Detours
Author: Regina Brett
Publisher: Hachette Audio
Rating: You Need to Read

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?
Ms. Brett started out as a newspaper columnist who turned, 50 and wanted to write the lessons that she learned, the hard way. God Never Blinks: 50 Lessons for Life's Little Detours is a powerful little book that packs a punch. If you're feeling down, pick this book up. It has everything you would ever need to turn your thinking around. Little nuggets of humor and knowledge are sprinkled throughout this book and will leave you wanting to read more. I loved this book because it has short lessons in them. When something goes wrong in my life, I am easily able to pull out one of the lessons in the book and relate it to my own life. This is a must have book to keep on hand. When God Blinks was a fun audiobook to listen to as it was read l by the author herself. I felt a stronger connection to the author and the words meant just that much more to me. I am not alone in the lessons I have had to learn thus far. I look forward to reading many more of her books in the future.
