Did I Say That Out Loud?: Musings from a Questioning Soul by Meg Barnhouse 2006

ISBN-10: 1558965092
ISBN-13: 978-1558965096

107 pages
Publisher: Skinner House Books 2006

Drawing from both her personal experience and her insights as a minister and therapist, Barnhouse urges readers to let go of regrets and stress about the future and to surrender to circumstance during times of conflict. Her motto: Don’t just do something, stand there.

Barnhouse’s humorous and hopeful message is that faith in family, friends, and one’s self, rather than sudden actions, provides the guidance necessary to weather life’s problems and personal struggles.

Meg Barnhouse is a columnist for the Spartanburg Herald Journal and has been a commentator on the Carolinas' popular public radio program Radio Free Bubba for thirteen years. A former Presbyterian minister, she is currently minister of the Unitarian Universalist Church in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

Excellent book that looks unread. Some very slight smudges on covers probably from storage and handling and can hardly be seen. Wonderful condition.

Up Words for Down Days Hardcover –  1998 by Allen Klein

ISBN 0-517-20270-0
Publisher: Gramercy
Pages: 163

Over 700 wise, witty and wonderful words to help your spirits soar. Arranged by things that frequently cause stress.

The quotations in this book are sometimes wise, sometimes witty. But they are always helpful.

When they are wise, they can lend a hand in helping you overcome tough times. And when they are witty, they will give you a different point of view of your solemn situation— and nothing, perhaps, gives a better perspective than a good laugh. In either case, pick this book up when you, or someone you know, needs a lift.

Allen Klein is and award-winning professional speaker and the author of several books including the best-selling, The Healing Power of Humor.

7 x 6.75; hardcover with jacket. Very good condition. It appears not to have been read if so, very little. Book is in excellent condition. Jacket shows minor shelfwear. Near fine.
