Duration: 3 hours 31 minutes
We’re all looking for answers. We just need to open our eyes to the world around us to find them.
Author Chess Britt shares a delightful personal collection of down-to-earth maxims with one clear agenda: to inspire us to search for truth and wisdom. If we actively seek wisdom, says Britt, we’re bound to live our happiest and most productive lives. The best part is that we don’t have to look far. Truth and wisdom are often right under our noses in our everyday lives.
And when we seek wisdom and learn from it, we’ll be ready not only to grab life’s opportunities, but to meet the challenges we will inevitably face. Britt believes in us and in our ability to carry out the search, and his encouraging words and (often humorous) stories contain an uplifting message about recognizing, embracing, and valuing those searches.
The maxims—with titles like “Live to Love and Love to Live” and “It’s Going to Be Okay” explore topics such as making the most of our time with other people, why anger is our enemy, the importance of patience, and even why we shouldn’t waste precious time lying in bed when there are things to be done—guide with a gentle hand. Britt’s suggestions are offered without judgment and have something to say to people of all ages, from all walks of life. If after reading the maxims, we want to alter our present course, the author offers questions to ponder on how to move forward. Britt’s life experiences and faith guide him in this thoughtful and generous book you’ll want to experience and share with anyone looking for answers.
