Did you set any goals for the new year? Or maybe you've been thinking of a few "growth" areas for you personally in 2015. One of the most effective ways for me to work towards a goal is to read. Often when I find myself "stuck" in a particular area, I go a find a good book. In books I find hope, perspective, and maybe a plan to move forward. No matter what your goals this year here are some of my favorite books to help you meet your goals this year.
I highly recommend Crystal's book Say Goodbye to Survival Mode. It is so practical and full of encouragement. In fact, I used this book a lot to help me think about set goals this year. I love Crystal's positive outlook on life. It is full of personal stories and useful information.
