    Book Review

Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite

Ordained minister, Chariss K. Walker begins her book, Make a Joyful Noise, by sharing her story. She hit bottom in her early forties. An incurable illness, a divorce, a death in the family was all devastating events. Walker began to search for more. She sought a complete healing, the mind, the body, and the spirit. She turned to Reiki, Hands of Light, NET, EFT, Affirmations, Aromatherapy, Positive Thinking, Holistic Medicine, Psych-K, Reflexology, and other theories that focus on natural cures. While this may sound New Age to many, these methods have been practiced for thousands of years.

Her book is filled with quotes. She uses scripture to support her statements. The Energy of Words and The Right Attitude are common sense. If you continually call someone lazy they will act lazy. Our attitude affects those around us as well as ourselves. Walker discusses oneness. The third section of this book discusses the “toolkit”: prayer, meditation, praise, affirmations, visualization, dreams and numerous other tools.

I found the information in this book fascinating. Walker writes in an easy to understand manner. It is easy to recommend this book
