Like most readers I enjoy a devotional pick me up each morning. The world may be pressing in but a few moments spent with Thelma Wells, Mama T Says, "Rise and Shine": Inspirational Stories to Brighten Your Day. Wells offers hope in times of distress. Too often we feel overloaded with everyday problems; too often tragedy comes hurling arrows at you. We begin to wear down and wonder how we will go on with life. How can we “fix” this one? Wells reminds us that we need only to trust in God. He has a plan for our lives and if we will allow Him to lead we will survive. Wells reminds readers about the power of prayer and scripture. The advice on love your family, friends and enemies was my favorite. She also reminds us that praising God and praising others goes much farther than negative comments.

Wells is a talented author. Her book has humor that will make you smile and wisdom that will lighten your load. The cover is beautifully done. It is eye catching with appeal that makes you want to jump right in and read the whole book.
