Truth, Next Exit: No Excuses Scripture as your Personal Trainer and Life Coach by Michele M. Paiva
Michele Paiva describes her book as a way to make personal changes using the Socratic method of asking questions; she also uses readings from Scripture to suggest improvements for your life, health, habits of mind, and outlook. The book asks thoughtful and challenging questions, encouraging readers to provide their own answers.
"How would you feel if God came to you and said, "You know, I have given you a body, supplied you with healthy fruits and vegetables, and gave you the ability to make choices; what have you done to honor the life I've given you?" What would you say?" (p. 25)</
"What do you give to yourself on a daily basis? Anything?"(p. 58)My comments: Truth, Next Exit is written as a guide book and workbook with exercises for readers to record their thoughts and answers. I found the book helpful and relevant to everyday living. The questions and comments on changing habits certainly put me in a reflective and thoughtful mood.
"What do you do that sabotages your freedom? Do you depend on others too much?" (p. 74)
