    Well depending on your mood, I'm a huge fan of Joyce Meyers if you want to make some changes about yourself; she's basically a self help guru. If you are feeling down I recommend Joel Olsten, he can put a smile on any face! If you are feeling fanatical go with Mary K Baxter, she's got a heck of a story. If you are feeling like understanding the Bible a little better, go with the Amplified version. If you have some problems with being negative, or know someone who does, Dr. Leaf's books "Who turned off my mind" It's great learning!

    I hope this helps! Good luck and God bless!

    I hear quotes from two Authors all the time, and everyone says their books are amazing.

    Lol the only problem is, is that I've never seen their names on the paper, so i can't spell them.

    I'll try though.

    Ravenhill and Toser.
