As a working mother of three I always try my hardest to live my best life and keep a smile on my face to show my children that you can find something good in every situation. I do this on a daily basis by growing and learning from each curveball that life throws my way. As you may know, our family went through some struggles this year and I have made it my goals to focus, now more than ever, on being grateful for what we have as it has helped me grow tremendously as a mother. That’s why I’m so into this new book written by Carol Lavin Bernick called Gather As You Go! This book is a compilation of over 300 stories that are meant to inspire and share some of life’s most valuable lessons with almost anyone.
This book is the perfect holiday gift idea for this year as it offers a purpose those who reads it, making it the perfect gift for anyone on your list. All net proceeds from this book benefit Enchanted Backpack, a non-profit organization that helps children in underprivileged areas by providing school supplies, winter clothing, art supplies, sports equipment and so many more essential items.
This book has been absolutely delightful to read, and I’ve already learned so much. I’ve enjoyed many different stories including lessons on business to the heartfelt messages highlighting grief and loss. As a person who has experienced a great amount of personal loss in my life and as a child this book was healing and made me rethink the grieving process and how it affects each individual differently. It’s nice to read something that I can take and use within my own life. I leave it on my coffee table and read it all little by little, day by day. Trust me, once you pick it up it’s hard to put down!
You can start reading many of the stories within the book on the Gather As You Go website. You will see many inspirational stories written by Carol that can truly resonate with anyone. I even see my teenager pick it up from the table every now and again. I have a feeling that this is going to be the perfect gift for a few of my friends and it also doubles as a great addition to your coffee table!
I really have enjoyed this book and so much so that I am so excited to actually be able to also give one away!
We are giving away one copy of Gather As You Go!
This book sounds interesting. Just a title loan really makes you wanna pick it up and look through it. Gather as you go, to me, means living in the moment and dealing with things as they come
I love your coffee table! 🙂
Also, that book does look like a really great collector’s piece. I love finding new books like this that I can share with others.

You are right. This book would be perfect for the coffee table. I am always looking for something to read when I have my coffee in the morning. Turning on the TV to watch the news has been depressing lately so I guess that book would make me start my day right.

I think this would be really nice read casually. I like having something I can enjoy and learn from while having my morning tea.
