Practical and Very helpful Jan 10, 2010
I am in my 40s and wish I would have read this years ago! She gives very practical and doable ideas for everyday which is explained so well. I am always trying to use God's direction and will in my life and this book has helped me with HOW to do some of the things which come difficult for me. Thank you, Valerie! I am buying this for a friend today and wanted to express my appreciation for your great ideas and wisdom. You have helped many people!
I am going to give a copy of book to each friend and family members Apr 4, 2008
This is the best inspirational book I have read. I want all my friends to read it. I am willing to give each one of them a copy as a gift. I could not put this book down. I read all of it and now I have started my 28-day project. I have done a lot of progress in my life that no one would probably would be able to help me with, but Valorie Burton is really good, I would definitely like to have her as my coach in life.
A Daily Dose of Authentic Confidence... Jan 12, 2008
The Ups and Downs of Being Round
It took me a while to get started because of my crazy schedule, but I decided to make increasing my confidence a priority. From that day on I would wake up every morning and read one chapter a day.
Valorie Burton organized the book in manageable chunks so that you can focus on one area of self-improvement at a time. Self-improvement is really not the best word to describe it though because she used scriptures and prayers to help us to realize that being confident is not just about self-confidence, because we cannot do it alone. It is all about having authentic confidence which is very much dependant on your faith in how God works through you.
I enjoyed the confidence exercises that she recommended for each day. They were simple and they were not intimidating, but they made a big difference.

It works! Nov 22, 2007
I am mid-way through this book, but I can already see results. It feels like I have a personal coach pushing me to do the things God has been leading me to do. Even prorastinators are led to act.
What I know now! Oct 28, 2007
I wish I had this book in my twenties! Great advice! I like the biblical references and written exercises also. I read it all once because it was such a wonderful book.
