Dr. Jill’s Top Ten Recommended Books for the New Year!
I just love new beginnings! Two-thousand and sixteen was an exceptionally difficult year for me personally. However, one thing I have learned is that I was born to overcome! Many of you know I beat breast cancer in 2001 and Crohn’s disease one year later in 2002. (you can read my story here)
What I know to be true is that with difficulty and suffering also comes deep insight and personal growth. Even though I am looking forward to a new year and a fresh start, I wouldn’t trade any of these experiences for the soul wisdom I have gained in the process. I’ve learned that I am stronger than I thought and more resilient than I ever believed possible. I have also learned that faith, hope and love truly do overcome all barriers. As 2016 comes to a close and we begin anew, I would like to share with you some of the books that have impacted me most in the previous year. I sure hope you will enjoy them as much as I have!
Here are the top ten books that most impacted me in the past year:
