What Readers Have Said:
Dear Deb: Thanks for Thank You Power. If pastors were to be looked at as a group, I wonder how they would far. It's a calling with enormous expectations, and as a result, I fear, enormous disappointments. Many pastors have been wounded and disabled by members who feel 'safe' dumping on the one person obliged to forgive them. I do know your specific faith, Deb, but God bless you for reminding me that I can fill my own bucket without waiting for others to do so. You have truly given me a gift.
I just finished your book and loved it. The simplicity of gratitude versus the power it holds is amazing to me. Two simple words. I've been keeping a gratitude journal since I watched The Secret. This is a continuation of what my partner and I believe and live. Your book was so inspirational and I will continue to use the power of thank you in my life. I feel good. Thank YOU. – Felix
Thank you for writing a book like this. I hope that everyone reads it and learns to think more positively! Can you just imagine how beautiful this world would be if that happened? – Wendy
We know that even though it is difficult to get out of bed some days we must. We can feel down on ourselves but we must balance it with the positive. Your book is what we need to help us through these dark times. Let the reading begin!
I have been having some of the worst days of my life, to the extent that I secretly felt like giving up (secret). Yesterday I hit my lowerest low and I struggled to get to work today, only to come home and see you on TV talking about Gratitude. That's what I truly need to work on. Thank you for being an inspriation. Just know and remember taht you save lives just with your words and even when you may not be aware, there are those of us who turn to you or are lucky to see you on TV -- just in the nick of time. THANKS for giving me the hope to try again.
