Book Description

April 1 2008
Polka-dot Star Flowers are the flowers of the heart. They are what make little children dance with happiness in the sunshine. We adults have mostly forgotten that feeling of joyous wonder, of simple abandon. We are afraid to be silly or we have been wounded by life's trials. It is not too late though. Happiness is peeking at us right around the corner. The happily married mother of fourteen children, I have learned how to reconnect with true joy in this life. You can be happy. You can learn to smile and laugh. Be expectant! Miracles are all around you. This book is about how to love, and how to live. It is about joy and wonder. It is about freedom and acceptance, hope and forgiveness. It is about redemption. It is about treating each other with kindness, gentleness, and respect. Life is meant to be a fabulous journey of discovery. We need to start seeing miracles again! Get your dancing shoes on because Polka-dot Star Flowers are beginning to bloom and the sun is out! Hugs, Barbara

5.0 out of 5 stars It really will help! May 5 2008
By StepbyStep - Published on Amazon.com
Be prepared to find the path to joy when you open this book! The Author has taken time to include scripture after scripture, from the Bible, with commentary and examples that will soothe your wounded places. With continued study, I believe it could change the way many see their lives and infect them with "long-term" joy!

If you or anyone you know could benefit from more joy in their lives, this would be a great choice!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book!!! Aug. 26 2008
By Willam Carvalho - Published on Amazon.com
I got this book for suggestion of a friend. While it is not the kind of book I would read, that friend told me that I would like it. And in fact I did and a lot. I do not read self-help books. And I also usually do not read bible related materials. But I took a deep breath and went for it.
Considering my remarks just made, I really liked the book. I liked for its view on a subject that bothers me a lot. I don't think that I have seen a book using the bible to spread understanding, comprehension and love. I was impressed by the views exposed in the book. If the book were in Portuguese I would certainly send a copy to my mother. She is Catholic, but as the author of the book, she does not use the bible to stimulate hatred and discrimination.
The bottom line is that I was very impressed by the book (which is very inspiring) and I am glad that I read it, even the book being a style that I usually do not visit. I also think that this book should be mandatory purchase for anybody getting a bible. If more people read the book I am quite sure the world would be a better place to live.

5.0 out of 5 stars The title might make you smile, but the contents will lead you to real joy. July 1 2008
By S. Clements - Published on Amazon.com
Get ready to laugh and cry. This book is very relatable. If you apply the information in this book, the way the author has, it will change your life and bring joy. The author recommends using a pink highlighter in your Bible. I suggest doing the same in her book, because there are countless nuggets of wisdom that you will want to highlight and read again and again.

4.0 out of 5 stars an uplifting book June 4 2008
By Lisa M. Teuchtler - Published on Amazon.com
I had never read a self-help book before i ordered this one, I didn't know what to expect. I had read a few pages before I realized that it was a "Jesus" book. I was dissappointed and about to put it down but I continued to read it. I am only half-way through but enjoy the reading.It is a very easy read, uplifting and thought provoking. I would recommend it to any young or mature person that is feeling a little let down about life.
