Reviewed by Vincent Dublado for Readers' Favorite

The Blessing Book by Francis J. Shaw is a profound, spiritual look at the blessings that come into our lives. How many times have you heard that you should count your blessings? This admonition appears so trivial that we often go about our lives not giving it a thought. This book will change your perceptions with its anthology of 72 easy-to-read reflections that connect blessings with gratitude, fulfillment, and joy. These are reflections that celebrate your uniqueness and show you why you are placed on this earth as there are certain things that only your uniqueness can provide. It is an uplifting journey that we must all take at some point in our lives because it will help us understand how the blessings we receive become instrumental in our well-being.

There are many things in our lives, both large and small, that we might be grateful for. But the fast and demanding pace of our modern lifestyle doesn’t give us enough time to look back and reflect, so we overlook and take such blessings for granted. Francis J. Shaw’s soothing style is meditative, one that does not require you to devote long reading hours. As a fusion of spiritual and philosophical work, The Blessing Book can be read one reflection at a time, where you can spare a minute or two from your waking hours. If there is anything that you can learn from reading these reflective pieces, it is that without the value of inner wisdom, fear will always find a way to attract our attention. Gratitude and unconditional love that are by-products of our blessings become components of inner wisdom that serves as a powerful healing force in our lives. It’s a must-read book that gives you a conscious focus on blessings and their emotional, spiritual, and interpersonal benefits.


An excellent book by a truly gifted writer, he will go far.
