I love reading good books. They can educate us about new topics we have never heard before, entertain us after a long day at work and transport us to a magical world where we can escape for a few hours from our mundane lives.
Reading can also encourages and uplifts us when our spirits sag – especially when we are dealing with major life changes that alter the course of our lives.
I have gone through the deep valley of grief, depression and hopelessness myself (You can read about it on this post.) and these books help me get through the dark season.
