God Never Blink: 50 Lessons for Life's Little Detours

God Never Blinks: 50 Lessons for Life's Little Detours
By Regina Brett
After cancer struck in her 40’s, Regina Brett wrote “45 Lessons Life Taught Me” for the Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper she worked for in Cleveland, OH. When people began emailing the lessons around Regina added five more lessons and turned it into the book, God Never Blinks.

Regina begins by sharing that when she was younger she felt as though at the time she was born God blinked and over looked her life. Through the years she’s gathered lessons proving that God does not blink. Regina explores the reasons why God does not blink seen through her own personal stories, the love of her friends, and people she has learned about as a columnist for the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Written in a conversational tone, Regina is upfront about her mistakes and short comings. The book is funny, thought provoking and poignant with lessons like “Don’t take yourself too seriously - no one else does” and “Life is too short to waste time hating anyone”.

God Never Blinks makes for a great coffee table book and one to flip through whenever you’re feeling a little down or contemplative. I listened to the audio version of this book read by the author herself. I really liked that it was read by Regina because she was able to put emphasis on issues she wanted, the way she meant for them to be.

I received this book free for review from Hachette Audio Group.

Favorite Quote:

“The only day worth living is the one I’m in.”
