Laugh out loud and tearful at other times, Could your ten earliest memories make you who you are? Well that's what a psychiatrist friend once told me. He also said that by recalling the most important decisions you have made in your life that these will have a bearing on future decisions to change the course of your life for the better. I decided to examine those very memories and decisions for myself in Bent Pages.

From the time I was a child, one of my habits that drove others in my family crazy was to bend the corner of a page down on a book I was reading if it contained information I wanted to remember and look back on. It was easy to tell which books I had read and had been inspired by...there would be many bent corners. This book is a snapshot of the bent corners of pages in my life that have inspired and taught me. They are moments I never want to forget, even if painful. They have made me who I am. And I would not change that for the world!

I have discovered that I can make a difference, one person at a time, beginning with me. I have learned that God is indeed in control, even when life seems chaotic.

I have also learned that I get to choose how I want to view those events that affected my life. I can choose to be a victim or I can choose to be a victor.

An excellent read.  I thoroughly enjoyed this story.  I would recommend this book to everyone who has grown up in small town America.
I received this from Netgalley as an ARC for an honest review

I am reviewing a copy of Bent Pages through BooksGoSocial and Netgalley:



Can your ten earliest memories help you define who you are?  Recalling the most important decisions you have made in your life that these will have a bearing on future decisions to change the course of your life for the better. I decided to examine those very memories and decisions for myself in Bent Pages.





From the time she was a child the author had a habit that drove her family crazy, that was to bend the corner of a page down on a book I was reading if it contained information I wanted to remember and look back on.  It was easy to tell the books she had read, and the ones that had inspired he, because there would be bent pages.   This book is a snapshot of the bent corners of pages in my life that have inspired and taught me. They are moments I never want to forget, even if painful. They have made me who I am. And I would not change that for the world!




In this book we are reminded that we can make a difference, one person at a time, beginning with me. I have learned that God is indeed in control, even when life seems chaotic.




I have also learned that I get to choose how I want to view those events that affected my life. I can choose to be a victim or I can choose to be a victor.
Welcome to the adventure!



I give Bent Pages five out of five stars!


Happy Reading!

This is my favorite memoir/biography I ever read because it's so heart touching and meaningful.
