One of Melody Beatties best books!

This book walks you through things that help you connect with your soul. She gives you exercises, mantras, and meditations! Along with her very personal story of connecting with her soul. It takes you on a journey, and it was well worth the read!

This book is a blessing!

This is one of those books that seems to have just came to me somehow. These are the books that I needed the most. I love this little book. I didn't really know I was lost until I read it. But after I started reading it, I started crying and all of these emotions were coming to the surface. Emotions that had been holding me back and weighing me down my whole life. It's touching, it's helpful, it's inspiring, and it's well-written and personal. I've read a lot of self-help books or books to help you find God, but this book was like none of the other books I've read. It is sweet, to the point, and it hits your emotional trigger points in a gentle manner, but effectively. This book is full of love! And once you read it, you will be thankful for the love that it awakens in your heart. The main things I gained from this book are the ability to forgive myself and the realization that I truly am NOT alone. I realized that I plow through life often scared, uncertain of who I am or what my purpose is, and too often unsure if God is really with me. After I read some of this book, my heart felt free from the heavy burdens that I had carried my whole life. This is a great book!

Remember your soul

Finding Your Way Home is the first book I have read by Melody Beattie. Because of her simple writing style, I plan to read the others. I enjoyed the personal anecdotes and the activities to practice at the end of each chapter. Also, the meditations are easy to follow and practice. My favorite one that I now use every morning and evening is creating a healing vortex (p.176) to clear your energy field. It helps me balance and focus my energy for the day and release my daily baggage before I sleep. This book provides many ideas and activities to help you connect and remember your soul.

I Know Where My Home Is

Melody suggests reading the book through and then going back and reading it again to complete the activities. Well, that's how I started, but I connected so much with her introductory descriptions of how people have a sense of not belonging that I knew this book was written for me, for this moment of my life. It took me three weeks to read the book the first time. I read "Finding the Right Path" five mornings in a row. NOW I'm ready to go through this book again. "Finding Your Way Home" is exactly what the cover promises: a soul survival kit - tools for discovering your emotional and spiritual power. Melody's words and activities have helped me find an awareness and excitement about staying in the present.

Magnificent and Provoking Read

This is the second piece of work that I have read of Melody Beattie and have found it to be quite powerful. She conveys the deep soul work and analysis in a simplisitc manner. Although it is simply conveyed, the work behind the words is quite challenging to evolve through. Her heart is so powerful and eloquent that I just couldn't put the book down.

Encourages Self Reliance w/in a Spiritual framework

I've read many of Ms. Beattie's books before. Her candor is her greatest strength. In this book, she explores being human and believing in God. It is a very refreshing viewpoint. There is no psycho-babble. Some of it is a bit new-agey but overall, it is very practical. It touched on many issues I still deal with even though I've been out of a abusive & alcoholic family for 11 years. The work she recommends and the affirmations make me feel like I can take care of myself w/o therapy or self-help books. I realized I am not alone in my struggles. Ms. Beattie's forthrightness and conversational style lend to the intimacy of the book. When she shares her difficult moments and her associated comments, it is comforting to realize that our own experiences and related emotions are more normal that society would have have us believe. I especially enjoy her "walk with God" approach. It is that mindfulness that has inspired me the most.
