I may have mentioned this before but it’s worth mentioning it again…. Sometimes I think my book has a life of its own, I really do! It seems that when I put just a bit of time and energy into it, the “book” immediately responds – I get calls for more workshops, my book is selected as one of the  “suggested summer reading” books, and I get book reviews… Take a quick look at the book review that follows written by Jennifer Wardrip, from TeensReadToo…

One thing is for sure: there is a need for girls to connect with what matters most to them. I believe there is another need that is just as important and as intrinsic: the need to re-connect with those that love us and deeply want what’s best for us – whether it’s our own mothers/caretakers, a close friend, or mentor.


  Let’s find time to re-connect!  


          Below is the book review from Teensreadtoo, which can also be
          found  at  www.

                                                               Open your heart to what really matters….

There are numerous self-help books on the market, and a surprising number of them are for teens and young adults. Most have a way of telling you what to do to improve your life.  MATTERS OF THE HEART, however, doesn’t tell you how to live your life.  Instead, author Corin Wiser offers practical tips, real-life examples, and ideas to help you brainstorm so that you can live the type of life that you want to lead.

The book covers several issues, all of them important, that deal with things that truly matter in life: you, your thoughts and feelings, your words and choices, your family and friends, your body, and even the world around you.  MATTERS OF THE HEART is interactive, with lists, snippets of true stories, and even journal space and fill-in-the-blank areas that the reader can use to make notes or jot down important points.

This isn’t a book geared towards giving you a perfect life.  In fact, one of the strongest points of MATTERS OF THE HEART is that perfection is a goal that can never be attained.  But with the right attitudes, goals, and mindset, teens really can transition into adulthood with confidence, self-esteem, and self-respect.

If you’re the parent of a teen or pre-teen, or even know one who could benefit from a little nudge during the difficult time of life known as adolescence, hand them a copy of MATTERS OF THE HEART.  Although the "feel" of the book definitely seems geared toward girls, I believe that guys, too, would benefit from the useful information inside this book.
