Making Sense When Life Doesn't: A Book Review and Tour

About The Book:

Beloved author Cecil Murphey empowers readers to discover the good in every situation and to make life better because of adversities.

Sometimes life gets messy. It’s cluttered with too many demands. Companies downsize. Love relationships end. Trauma hits. When chaos erupts, every person has a choice to make—to decide whether it’s the worst time of life, to find comfort in the way things used to be, to move on because change is forced, and then resent everything that happens, or to say, “This can be the best time of my life. I can try the things I wanted to do but never did.” 

In Making Sense When Life Doesn’t, Cecil Murphey’s compelling stories, hope-filled insights, and gentle encouragement move readers with messy lives to the stunning realization that life won’t ever be perfect, but it can be good…even exciting!

My Review:

Tough stuff happens everyday to each of us. It is life, but just because it happens, doesn't mean our life is over. Something good comes from each negative experience we have. I truly believe that, even though in the middle of it, things may not always seem like it. 

Cecil Murphey has written a very inspirational and encouraging book in Making Sense When Life Doesn't. It is a narrative, but also a very practical book that will give the reader many tips and ideas as to how to deal with chaos and unexpected life experiences when they do arrive. A very quick read and easy one, it is sure to be a gift to anyone dealing with hard times.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.

BUY IT: You can purchase Making Sense When Life Doesn't online at Amazon, as well as at your favorite local bookseller.
