There are times when being a book reviewer is tough duty. I’ve been sent dozens of books either electronically or in printed form and overall the experience has been good. There are times however when the experience is so much better than just “good.” Reviewing Life Lessons From The Heart by Teresa Morrow is one of these “better than good” experiences.
These days, we are bombarded on a constant basis with bad news. Negativity is everywhere. Over time, it is easy to forget the good things in life. They are still there, just beneath the surface whether we realize it or not. Sometimes a gentle reminder is all that is needed to get us back on track. Life Lessons is that gentle reminder. This book is not a cumbersome manifesto, full of fluff and whatnot. At less than 50 pages, it is easy to read and more importantly it is easy to absorb the moving and inspirational advice within.
Each chapter is a specific lesson based on Teresa’s life experiences that I would guess are very similar to the challenges each of us face in one way or another. At the end of each chapter is an appropriate “poem” driving the point home of the lesson.
Life Lessons From The Heart is not a book to be read and put on a shelf. It is more suited to a book that you should keep on your nightstand in order to review the lessons and see how they apply to your day.
I believe you will find Teresa’s writing style to be conversational and engaging. In a word: Real. Contributing greatly to the readability of the book, her style made me feel as if we were sitting in an outdoor cafe, talking about life while enjoying the setting sun and a strong cuppa.

Here’s a little info about Teresa:
Teresa began her life as a symbol of inspiration; born under special
circumstances weighing a little over one pound compounded with severe
heart issues. She overcame these medical obstacles surprising the doctors
by living beyond their projected life span of twenty-four hours. Later, in
her teens, she was introduced to the world of writing when she submitted a
poem for creative writing class which got selected in the school yearbook.
Her professional background has expanded from working with family business
to Fortune 500 companies as an executive assistant. This led her to start
her own virtual administrative business, Key Business Partners, in 2007.
Following an internal sense of purpose she turned that enterprise into an
online book promotional company that has helped numerous authors share
their personal messages with others.
At 40, this native Floridian’s true life purpose came to the forefront. As
an inspirational writer, author and poet, this author of Life Lessons from
the Heart (2012 Smashwords) is an advocate for individuals who want to
realize and celebrate their own uniqueness. She serves as a reminder that
one’s true purpose can be experienced every day. Teresa showcases her
passion to help empower others overcome their obstacles and realize their
own voice through the celebration of self trust and love.
