First Chapter Review: Reflections: A Journey to God by Gary & Susan Eby

Author: Gary & Susan Eby
Publisher: Christian Faith Publishing
Pages: 268
Genre: Spirituality/Self-Help/Healing/Poetry

Our disclaimer: you are completely free to reject everything we have to say about spirituality. What we believe in is not that important. What really counts is what you believe that gives your life meaning, direction, and purpose.
This book is about our personal stories with Spirit and what we've learned along our journeys. We're sharing it with you because it might help you on your own journey to God. We only ask that you read this book with an open mind and heart.
We suggest you pick one of these spiritual essays. Ponder it, meditate for a while, even read it out loud. Allow yourself to feel the words and the light, which may lead you to discover the better life you truly deserve.

I simply love this cover. It gives you the impression that once you reach the end of the wooden walkway, paradise waits for you. Such symbolism. Paradise can mean anything spiritual-wise. It just depends on the interpreter. Paradise can be that path you walk through life and when you finally make it to the end successfully spiritually, you know you have made it. It can also mean after you walk down that path through life, Paradise is waiting for you on the other side. Just gives me goosebumps.

First Chapter: 

Actually this book isn't divided into chapters. Instead it is divided by essays which is fine. The first essay is called Chetco River and is written by Gary. He describes a place he and his wife stayed for four days which reminds me of staying in a cabin in the Smokie Mountains. I had the same feeling of euphoria as Gary describes and this makes for a great beginning of this book - very spiritual in feeling and it's something that's different for everyone.

Favorite Line:

We believe we truly are beings of light,from which radiates prosperity, love, healing, abundance, and eternal consciousness.

Would I Keep Reading?

If the first chapter is any indication to how I'll feel about the rest of the chapters, I would definitely keep reading.
