In today's hectic society, it is sometimes easy to lose touch with who we are, our life purpose, and our core values. Whether you believe in God or not, building a relationship with him not only enhances your spiritual awareness but your life experiences too. As humans, we are all seeking our own truth and throughout this guide, we examine what it means to live a godly life to the fullest capacity by allowing him to direct the choices you make in relationships, health, and career. However, we are all unique beings and our strengths and weaknesses are different. By following The Path of Life Journal by Pamela Sanders Ellis, you can enhance your life and well-being from the inside while still serving God. With techniques and methods on a healthy diet and fitness program, building satisfying relationships with your loved ones, and reaching those financial goals, this guide will steer you to spiritual abundance and inner serenity.

The Path of Life Journal by Pamela Sanders Ellis is filled with golden nuggets of information and techniques that will minimize your chances of procrastination or failure. The author takes a very non-judgemental approach and realizes that as humans we are all susceptible to outside influences. She guides us gently through a very interesting section on health and fitness which I loved, especially the affirmations and the how-to avoid cravings sections. The journal at the end is really going to make a positive impact on your chances of success too with great questions to ask yourself as you proceed on your journey. I also thought the explanation as to why having a strong faith is invaluable as we travel through life was made exceptionally well. Having a strong faith is something that touches our lives on a daily basis and if we are in touch with our spirituality and allow God to guide us, then our life experience has to be more fulfilling. If you are looking to enhance your spirituality, find peace, and a deeper understanding of your behavior and belief system, then this guide is a definite must-read for you.

The Path Of Life Journal: Your Personal Journey is a work of non-fiction in the inspirational and self-help sub-genres, and was penned by author Pamela Sanders Ellis. Offering a message of spirituality through belief in God, this concise yet informative guidebook seeks to help others to reach their own understanding of the mysteries of life. Under the guidance of the author, readers are encouraged to explore self-knowledge and wisdom, uncovering their life calling given to them by God in the process. This is a combined approach alongside other principles such as the law of attraction and the furnishing of good mental health habits.

In a world where self-care and faith can both be difficult things to maintain, author Pamela Sanders Ellis offers a guidebook to help those who want to find a better balance of these elements in their daily lives. With a combination of interpretations of scripture and advice on daily living, this book offers many positive aspects from the Christian faith which can enhance our self-worth and give us a greater sense of purpose in life. I felt that the physical layout and organization of quotes, key points, and ideas make the work highly readable and accessible even to those who don’t normally take on heavy reading. Anyone with faith can be helped by this book. Overall, I would certainly recommend The Path Of Life Journal: Your Personal Journey to Christian readers looking for self-improvement and empowerment with a perspective designed for the modern world.

Life can be difficult at times. What we need is a powerful spiritual presence to get us through the bad times as well as the good times. For those of us with a Christian upbringing, that spiritual presence is found in our Savior, Jesus Christ. Others can also find spiritual presence as well and the spiritual awakening that allows our entire being, our bodies, and our inner selves to be strong and whole and stress-free. First we have to believe in ourselves, in our spiritual faith, and in the eternal powers that will make us stronger.

Pamela Sanders Ellis’s guidebook, The Path of Life Journal: Your Personal Journey, is a means to find our spiritual essence, a true balance in our lives. She guides us through her own experiences and what works from good eating habits, good sleeping habits, and good exercise, to an understanding of the power of God’s greatest love for us, the power of our spiritual essence. The first half of the book is a guide; the second half is a detailed journal for us, the readers, to fill in daily, complete with notations on what to consider, what and how to pray, and how to make us spiritually (mentally and physically, too) stronger in our faith.

The daily devotional prayers offer suggestions for a wide variety of prayers to suit the occasion or the need, like prayers of contrition, prayers of praise and thanksgiving, and so on. This is followed by a health and fitness log to help us document our physical health and well-being. Complete with biblical quotes to support her agenda, this is a thorough guide to help lead all of us through our own self-awareness and spiritual awakening.
