#BeMore by Sandi Krakowski

"BEMORE: 77 Secrets To Your Powerful Life” offers inspiration and insight on how to become more connected to God, in tune with yourself, attentive to relationships, engaged with your community and mindful of your world. The #BEMORE life is about taking very critical steps in our day-to-day decisions and being acutely aware of who we are becoming, above all things.

Imagine a world where people are no longer focused on what they do, what they have or where they go. Instead, they would be more concerned with who they become. Sandi Krakowski, popular social media influencer and author, is on a mission to create just that through the #BEMORE movement, empowering people to overcome adversity and tap into all God has created them to be.

My Review: I guess this would be considered more of a devotional style book since it is not one you just pick up and read. It's divided onto 5 parts:
  • Part 1: Be More...Connected To God
  • Part 2: Be More...In Tune With Yourself
  • Part 3: Be More...Attentive To Your Relationships
  • Part 4: Be More...Engaged With Your Community
  • Part 5: Be More...Mindful Of Your World
There's a little more than a page written on each 'Secret' to a more powerful life, and each one ends with a saying that is suitable for sharing on Twitter or Facebook, ending with #BeMore.

There are a lot of people who will love this book. I get a little frustrated with sound bites over a more indepth study, so it's not really the book for me. I see a lot of people who tweet or do a quick FB status update meant to encourage, and have even done so myself, so it would be useful to grab something to reflect on for the day. But, I confess, I was disappointed that it seemed to be more style than substance.

I received a copy of this book from Shelton Interactive in exchange for a fair and honest review.
